Gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel vs. FOLFIRINOX for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer Purpose New chemotherapies have become available for the treatment of advanced pancreatic cancer and have led to changes in its standard treatments. Since pancreatic cancer is becoming more common as a result of population aging, there is a need for diversification of chemotherapy. Methods Between March 2014 and April 2017, FOLFIRINOX (FFX) or gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel (G-nab) was used as first-line therapy to treat 27 patients with locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer at our hospital. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated their clinical characteristics, survival outcomes and adverse events. Results Twelve of the 27 patients were treated with FFX, and the other 15 patients were treated with G-nab. The disease control rate was 86.7% in the G-nab group and 75% in the FFX group. Median OS time was 8.9 months in the FFX group and 11.8 months in the G-nab group. The 1-year survival rate was 46.6% in the G-nab group and 16.6% in the FFX group. The second-line treatment rate was 40% in the G-nab group and 66.7% in the FFX group. The grade 3–4 neutropenia rate was 20% in the G-nab group and 25% in the FFX group.

Abstract

Purpose New chemotherapies have become available for the treatment of advanced pancreatic cancer and have led to changes in its standard treatments. Since pancreatic cancer is becoming more common as a result of population aging, there is a need for diversification of chemotherapy. Methods Between March 2014 and April 2017, FOLFIRINOX (FFX) or gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel (G-nab) was used as first-line therapy to treat 27 patients with locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer at our hospital. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated their clinical characteristics, survival outcomes and adverse events. Results Twelve of the 27 patients were treated with FFX, and the other 15 patients were treated with G-nab. The disease control rate was 86.7% in the G-nab group and 75% in the FFX group. Median OS time was 8.9 months in the FFX group and 11.8 months in the G-nab group. The 1-year survival rate was 46.6% in the G-nab group and 16.6% in the FFX group. The second-line treatment rate was 40% in the G-nab group and 66.7% in the FFX group. The grade 3–4 neutropenia rate was 20% in the G-nab group and 25% in the FFX group.
