Details and patient eligibility


The goal of this clinical study is to compare the efficacy and safety of OT-101 in combination with mFOLFIRINOX (folinic acid, 5-FU, irinotecan, oxaliplatin) to mFOLFIRINOX alone in patients with advanced and unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Full description

OT-01-P201 is designed as a randomized, open-label, active controlled, multicenter Phase 2B/Phase 3 study designed to compare the efficacy and safety of OT-101 in combination with modified FOLFIRINOX (folinic acid, 5-FU, irinotecan, oxaliplatin) to modified FOLFIRINOX alone in patients with advanced and unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer. The primary endpoint of the study is overall survival and key secondary endpoints are progression-free survival and objective response rate.

Inclusion criteria

  1. A diagnosis of advanced and unresectable or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma confirmed by:

    1. Histopathology from primary tumor in pancreas, OR
    2. Histopathology from a non-pancreatic lesion in the presence of a mass in the pancreas consistent with pancreatic adenocarcinoma or a medically documented history of pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
  2. Measurable disease per RECIST v.1.1

  3. Male or non-pregnant, non-lactating female, ≥18 years or age

    1. If a female patient is of child-bearing potential, as evidenced by menstrual periods, she must have a negative serum pregnancy test (beta-human chorionic gonadotropin [β- hCG]) documented prior to the first administration of stud drugs
    2. Female patients of childbearing age and women < 12 months since the onset of menopause must agree to use acceptable contraceptive methods for the duration of the study and 9 months following the last injection of OT-101.
    3. Male patients must use effective contraception for a duration of 6 months after the final dose, as per the prescribing information for oxaliplatin.
  4. Provide signed written informed consent

  5. Eastern Cooperative Group (ECOG) Performance Status (PS) score of 0-1

  6. Willingness and ability to comply with study requirements

  7. Patient has adequate organ function by the following laboratory assessments at baseline(obtained ≤28 days prior to Randomization):

    • Hemoglobin ≥9.0 g/dL
    • Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥1.5×109/L
    • Patient has acceptable coagulation values obtained ≤28 days prior to Randomization as demonstrated by prothrombin time (PT) or international normalized ratio (INR) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) ≤1.5× upper limit of normal (ULN) (if on Coumadin, patient must be changed to LMWH or on Factor II or Xa anticoagulant with a t½ of less than 24 hours


    • Aspartate transaminase (AST)/alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤3×ULN (if liver metastases are present, ≤5×ULN)
    • Alkaline phosphatase ≤2.0×ULN (if liver metastases are present, ≤5×ULN)
    • Total bilirubin ≤2.0×ULN (in patients with Gilbert's Syndrome total bilirubin < or = 2.5xULN)


    • Calculated creatinine clearance ≥50 mL/min. Actual body weight should be used for calculating creatinine clearance (e.g., using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease [MDRD] formula. For patients with a body mass index (BMI) >30 kg/m2, lean body weight should be used instead
  8. Patient must have a life expectancy of ≥3 months in the opinion of the Investigator

Exclusion criteria

  1. Diagnosis of pancreatic islet neoplasm, acinar cell carcinoma, non-adenocarcinoma (ie,lymphoma, sarcoma), adenocarcinoma originating from the biliary tree, or cystadenocarcinoma

  2. Patient has experienced a decrease in ECOG PS between Screening visit and within 72 hours prior to Randomization

  3. Patient on Coumadin and not willing to change to LMWH or oral Factor II or Xa inhibitor with t½ of less than 24 hours

  4. History of prior malignancy, except for adequately treated in situ cancer, basal cell, squamous cell skin cancer, or other cancers (eg, breast and prostate) for which the patient has been disease-free for at least 3 years. Patients with prior cancer that is adequately controlled per the judgement of the Investigator will not be excluded from the study

  5. Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, psychiatric illness, or comorbidity that, in the judgment of the Investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for the study

  6. Patients with abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) at baseline (QT or QTc interval >470 ms) will be excluded from this study. The eligibility of patients with ventricular pacemakers for whom the QT interval may not be accurately measurable will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the Sponsor's medical representative in consultation with the principal investigator.

  7. Serious systemic fungal, bacterial, viral, or other infection that is not controlled or requires intravenous antibiotics

  8. Known history of positivity (regardless of immune status) for human immunodeficiency virus(HIV)

  9. Known history of chronic active or active viral hepatitis A, B, or C infection

  10. Clinically significant bleeding within 2 weeks prior to Randomization (eg, gastrointestinal[GI] bleeding or intracranial hemorrhage)

  11. Pregnant or lactating women

  12. Myocardial infarction, coronary bypass surgery, or arterial thromboembolic events within the last 6 months prior to Randomization, symptomatic congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association Classification >Class II, unstable angina, or unstable cardiac arrhythmia requiring medication

  14. Major surgery, defined as any surgical procedure that involves general anesthesia and a significant incision (ie, larger than what is required for placement of central venous access, percutaneous feeding tube, or biopsy) within 28 days prior to Randomization or anticipated surgery during the study period

(Patients with adequately treated CNS metastases who are clinically stable for at least 6 weeks after discontinuation of corticosteroids may be eligible for enrollment with the approval of the Sponsor's medical representative and the principal investigator)
