  • The standard treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer that was removed by surgery is to receive the chemotherapy drug gemcitabine. In this study, gemcitabine alone or gemcitabine combined with erlotinib will be given. Erlotinib is a pill that may help treat cancers by blocking a gene that is important in cancer growth. The use of erlotinib to try to prevent the recurrence of pancreatic cancer after surgery is research. This study will compare the effects, good and/or bad, of the drug erlotinib in combination with gemcitabine to gemcitabine alone for patients with pancreatic cancer that was removed by surgery to find out which is better.

  • The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of two different combinations of FDA-approved chemotherapy drugs for pancreatic cancer. These two combinations are called mFOLFIRINOX (oxaliplatin, irinotecan, and fluorouracil) and gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel. These chemotherapy drugs will be given before and after surgery. The addition of these chemotherapy drugs before surgery is a new approach that is being tested in this study.
