Purpose:

This is a study of ARQ-761 (beta-lapachone) with gemcitabine/nab-paclitaxel chemotherapy in subjects with advanced (metastatic, unresectable, or recurrent) pancreatic cancer that has not been treated with gemcitabine.


Study summary:

Screening: - Demographic information (age, gender, race, ethnic origin). - Physical exam and review of your past and present medical history including any surgeries a and/or infections; - Vital signs (temperature, pulse, respirations, blood pressure); height, weight; - Concurrent medications (medications whether prescribed or over-the counter that you have taken or are currently taking); - Performance Status (how well you are able to perform daily activities) - Review of any side effects that you may have experienced or may be experiencing before receiving the study drug and medications - Blood will be collected for routine lab tests - Urinalysis - Pregnancy Test (if you are a woman of child-bearing potential) - Radiologic evaluation (review of any CT scans you may have had) - Tumor measurements: - A CT scan (chest/abdomen/pelvis) is a special test that produces an image of your body using a. small amount of radiation. The image shows the body tissues and structures in three dimensions (3-D). - Electrocardiogram (EKG), a tracing of the electrical activity of the heart; - Oxygen saturation (measures how much oxygen the blood is carrying) - Biopsy for correlative studies - if archived tumor specimen cannot be obtained, you will need to undergo a fresh biopsy - Completion of a Quality of life questionnaire This visit may last approximately 1-2 hours. Visits that included radiologic evaluation may last longer, approximately 2-3 hours. The treatment consists of: - A 2 week lead-in monotherapy of ARQ-761 - they will receive the current dose of ARQ761 alone o The amount of ARQ-761 that will be given to you will depend on the time at which you are enrolled in the study. - Afterwards the 28-day cycle of combination treatment of ARQ-761 along with gemcitabine (1000 mg/m2) + nab-paclitaxel (125 mg/m2) will begin Lead-in 2 weeks before the combination therapy begins: Monotherapy of ARQ-761 Day 1: - Vital signs - Review of medical history - Physical exam - Review of any medications they are taking or have taken - Review of any adverse events they may have experienced - Performance status evaluation (questions about their activity level) - Quality of life assessment questionnaire - Blood will be drawn for routine laboratory tests - Urinalysis - Oxygen saturation measurement using a finger light sensor - EKG - ARQ761 Administration via intravenous (IV) for approximately 120 minutes Clinic Visit: 3 - 3 ½ Hours Combination Therapy: Cycle 1 Day 1 - Vital signs - Review of medical history and physical exam - Performance status evaluation (questions about their activity level) - Toxicity evaluation (questions about their side effects) - Quality of life assessment questionnaire - Blood work - Blood for correlative studies - Urinalysis - EKG - Oxygen saturation measurement using a finger light sensor Combination Treatment regimen: - Nab-Paclitaxel administered via intravenous (IV) over 30 minutes then;
