PURPOSE Despite advances in cancer therapy, treating pancreatic cancer remains one of the major challenges in the field of medical oncology. We conducted this phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of regional hyperthermia combined with gemcitabine for the treatment of unresectable advanced pancreatic cancer. METHODS Eligibility criteria included histologically proven, locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer. Gemcitabine was administered intravenously at a dose of 1000 mg… CONTINUE READING
