Systemic Cancer Therapy: Pancreatic and Colorectal Cancer – Pre-operative FOLFIRINOX in pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic Cancer is a disease with poor prognosis. In 2017, its 5-year net survival rate is only 8% with only 2% in metastatic setting and it is third common cause of cancer related death. Only less than 20% of cases are eligible for surgery at diagnosis, so we tried to evaluate the role preoperative FOLFIRINOX in potentially curable pancreatic cancer in retrospective study and clinical trial.
