A Phase I / II Study of Trifluridine / Tipiracil (TAS102) in Combination with Nanoliposomal Irinotecan (NAL-IRI) in Advanced GI Cancers
Stomach/ Gastric Cancer
18 Years and older, Male and Female
This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and how well trifluridine / tipiracil hydrochloride combination agent TAS-102 (TAS-102) and liposomal irinotecan work in treating patients with gastrointestinal cancers that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in the chemotherapy, such as trifluridine / tipiracil hydrochloride combination agent TAS-102 and liposomal irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.
I. Determine the recommended phase II dose for the combination of TAS-102 and liposomal irinotecan (nanoliposomal [nal]-IRI). (Phase I)
II. Evaluate the activity of the combination of TAS102 and nal-IRI in previously treated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer. (Phase II)
I. Define the toxicity profile of the combination of TAS-102 and nal-IRI.
II. Evaluate the activity of the combination of TAS-102 and nal-IRI in previously treated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study followed by a phase II study.
Patients receive liposomal irinotecan intravenously (IV) over 90 minutes on day 1 and trifluridine/tipiracil hydrochloride combination agent TAS-102 orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-5. Courses repeat every 2 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 30 days and then every 8 or 12 weeks thereafter.

**Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These studies test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in cancer clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to scientists’ knowledge about cancer and to help in the development of improved cancer treatments. They also receive state-of-the-art care from cancer experts... Click here to learn more about clinical trials
