Improving Survival in Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

A combination of Oxaliplatin, Irinotecan, Fluorouracil and Leucovorin (FOLFIRINOX) chemotherapy given to individuals with metastatic pancreatic cancer resulted in superior Response Rates, Progression Free Survival and Overall Survival compared to single agent Gemcitabine. For the first time, we now have a regimen that has demonstrated survival benefit for this hard-to-treat cancer.
