Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: S-1-CCRT
Type: Drug
Overall Status
The purpose of this study is to determine whether combination of TS-1 and concurrent and short-course radiotherapy is feasible in metastatic pancreatic cancer. The rationale of this study primarily bases on the good efficacy of gemcitabine plus TS-1 and the great potential of local control of concurrent chemoradiotherapy in pancreatic cancer.
