The study’s authors, presenting at ASCO 2010, reported 48% of patients on FOLFIRINOX were alive after 1 year compared to 20% on the gemcitabine arm and, for the first time in a study involving patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer, a median overall survival of 11.1 months was obtained on the FOLFIRINOX arm.
