Pancreatic Cancer Update – Part 2: Our interview with Dr Chiorean highlights the following topics as well as cases from her practice:

  • Biomarker-driven and molecular-targeted therapies for patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas: 0m0s
  • Rationale for the investigation of PEGPH20 in combination with pembrolizumab for previously treated hyaluronic acid (HA)-high metastatic pancreatic cancer: 4m40s
  • Tolerability and quality of life with PEGPH20 in combination with chemotherapy; mitigation of associated thromboembolic events: 6m59s
  • Ongoing Phase II trial of PEGPH20 with pembrolizumab for previously treated HA-high metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma: 10m14s
  • Testing for emerging biomarkers (eg, microsatellite instability) of response to immune checkpoint inhibitors in metastatic pancreatic cancer: 11m49s
  • Incidence of germline BRCA mutations and response to PARP inhibition: 15m27s
  • Case: A 55-year-old woman presents with back pain and dyspepsia and is diagnosed with borderline resectable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas: 17m55s
  • Risk of relapse with and without adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with lymph node involvement: 24m45s
  • Clinical experience with adjuvant FOLFIRINOX and gemcitabine/nab paclitaxel: 29m46s
  • Activity, tolerability and dosing of adjuvant FOLFIRINOX: 31m39s
  • Role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in the treatment of resectable or borderline resectable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas: 33m55s
  • Case: A 69-year-old woman with metastatic pancreatic cancer receives nal-IRI/5-FU/LV after experiencing disease progression on gemcitabine/nab paclitaxel: 38m26s
  • Response and tolerability with FOLFIRINOX compared to gemcitabine/nab paclitaxel: 41m49s
  • Second-line therapy options for metastatic pancreatic cancer: 46m59s
  • SWOG-S1513: An ongoing Phase II trial evaluating FOLFIRI alone versus modified FOLFIRI with the PARP inhibitor veliparib as second-line therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer: 50m42s
  • Investigation of CDK4/6 inhibition-based therapies for advanced pancreatic cancer: 52m21s
  • Second opinion: A 53-year-old man of Ashkenazi Jewish descent with a strong family history of BRCA mutation-associated cancers presents with metastatic pancreatic cancer and is found to harbor a germline BRCA2 mutation: 54m34s
  • Importance of palliative care in managing the symptoms of pancreatic cancer: 1h1m22s
