Gastrointestinal (pancreas) Cancer: Glufosfamide Versus 5-FU in Second Line Metastatic
Will the study drug (Glufosfamide) work as well as Fluorouracil (5-FU), the approved
treatment, in treating pancreatic cancer?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Cancer Center
Glufosfamide is being compared against Fluorouracil (5-FU). Fluorouracil is approved
by the FDA for use in people with rectal cancer. 5-FU was the drug of choice for pancreatic
cancer before gemcitabine and is still used in multiple regimens such as folfox and
Folfirinox as part of standard of care.
The study drug is made of glucose (a sugar made by the body) and a substance which
damages or kills cancer cells. Cancer cells depend on sugar more than normal cells
do, so the cancer cells may take up more of the study drug than normal cells. This
may allow glufosfamide to attack the cancer cells without causing excessive damage
to the normal cells.
