Unresectable Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasm clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Unresectable pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm is a type of cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. UCSF is conducting a clinical trial called Testing Cabozantinib in Patients With Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine and Carcinoid Tumors." The trial is testing cabozantinib to see how well it works compared with placebo in treating patients with this type of cancer."
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This phase III trial studies cabozantinib to see how well it works compared with placebo in treating patients with neuroendocrine or carcinoid tumors that may have spread from where it first started to nearby tissue, lymph nodes, or distant parts of the body (advanced). Cabozantinib is a chemotherapy drug known as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, and it targets specific tyrosine kinase receptors, that when blocked, may slow tumor growth.
