An early stage trial of a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for locally advanced inoperable pancreatic cancer in Australia has shown some promising results. The small scale trial involved treating people with a combination of gemcitabine and oxaliplatin chemotherapy followed by 5FU and three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy. It found that this combination seemed to have a positive outcome on local control of the disease. The study authors feel that this treatment combination should now be investigated as part of a larger phase III trial.
