Pancreatic Cancer clinical trials at UC Davis

13 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A First-in-Human Study of a Theranostic Drug Pair for the Detection and Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase I, first-in-human study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G and [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G theranostic pair in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC).

  • A Study of Chemotherapy Before and After Surgery for Removable Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial compares perioperative chemotherapy (given before and after surgery) versus adjuvant chemotherapy (given after surgery) for the treatment of pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery (removable/resectable). Chemotherapy drugs, such as fluorouracil, irinotecan, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy before and after surgery (perioperatively) may work better in treating patients with pancreatic cancer compared to giving chemotherapy after surgery (adjuvantly).

  • A Study of Experimental Cefoxitin or Piperacillin-Tazobactam to Prevent Postoperative Infections After Pancreatic Cancer Surgery

    “This study hopes to determine whether Cefoxitin or Piperacillin-Tazobactam prevents postoperative infections better.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to figure out which commonly used antibiotic, cefoxitin or piperacillin-tazobactam, is better at decreasing the rate of surgical site infections after pancreatoduodenectomy.

  • A Study of the Drug ONC-392 in Advanced Solid Tumors and Lung Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a First-in-Human Phase IA/IB open label dose escalation study of intravenous (IV) administration of ONC-392, a humanized anti-CTLA4 IgG1 monoclonal antibody, as single agent and in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with advanced or metastatic solid tumors and non-small cell lung cancers.

  • A Study of the Effectiveness and Safety of Experimental Pamrevlumab for Locally Advanced, Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of neoadjuvant treatment with pamrevlumab or placebo in combination with either gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel (G/NP) or FOLFIRINOX in the treatment of locally advanced, unresectable pancreatic cancer subjects.

  • A Study of the Effectiveness and Safety of Experimental Pembrolizumab Plus Lenvatinib for Selected Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of combination therapy with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) and lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in participants with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer (CRC), glioblastoma (GBM), biliary tract cancers (BTC), or pancreatic cancer.

  • A Trial of AMXI-5001 for Treatment in Patients With Advanced Malignancies (Cancer)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    ATLAS-101 is a Phase I/II clinical trial of AMXI-5001 in adult participants with advanced malignancies who have previously failed other therapies. The study has two phases. The purpose of Phase I (Dose Escalation) is to confirm the appropriate treatment dose and Phase II (Dose Expansion) is to characterize the safety and efficacy of AMXI-5001.

  • Experimental Combination of Anetumab Ravtansine, Nivolumab, Ipilimumab, & Gemcitabine Hydrochloride in Advanced Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of anetumab ravtansine when given together with nivolumab, ipilimumab and gemcitabine hydrochloride in treating patients with mesothelin positive pancreatic cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Anetumab ravtansine is a monoclonal antibody, called anetumab ravtansine, linked to a chemotherapy drug called DM4. Anetumab attaches to mesothelin positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers DM4 to kill them. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Chemotherapy drugs, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving anetumab ravtansine together with nivolumab, ipilimumab, and gemcitabine hydrochloride may work better in treating patients with pancreatic cancer.

  • Experimental Combination Treatment For Chemotherapy-Refractory (treatment resistant) Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of SD-101 when given together with nivolumab and radiation therapy in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that does not respond to treatment with chemotherapy (chemotherapy refractory) and has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as SD-101, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving SD-101, nivolumab, and radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with pancreatic cancer compared to nivolumab or radiation therapy alone.

  • Experimental Radiotracer Imaging Study for Cancer Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This clinical trial studies the side effects of 18F-alphavbeta6-binding-peptide and how well it works in imaging patients with primary or cancer that has spread to the breast, colorectal, lung, or pancreatic. Radiotracers, such as 18F-alphavbeta6-binding-peptide, may improve the ability to locate cancer in the body.

  • Targeted therapy directed by genetic testing in treating patients with advanced solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma

    “Will identifying genetic abnormalities in tumor cells help doctors plan better, more personalized treatment for cancer patients?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

  • Testing the Addition of a New Anti-cancer Drug, M3814 (Peposertib), to Radiation Therapy for Localized Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of M3814 and to see how well it works when given together with radiation therapy in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that cannot be removed by surgery and has not spread to other parts of the body (localized). M3814 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses of radiation therapy over a shorter period of time and may kill more tumor cells and have fewer side effects. Giving M3814 and hypofractionated radiation therapy together may work better than radiation therapy alone in the treatment of patients with localized pancreatic cancer.
