Research Study Description

The question being asked in this study is: Will patients with advanced pancreatic cancer live significantly longer if they are treated with a combination of Gemcitabine and ON 01910.Na than if they are treated with Gemcitabine alone? There are two parts to this study. In the first part of the study, patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer who have received no prior chemotherapy for this disease will be assigned by chance either to the group that will be treated with both Gemcitabine and ON 01910.Na (about 100 patients will be in this group) or, to the group that will be treated with Gemcitabine only (about 50 patients will be in this group). How long patients survive in the 2 groups will be compared. If it looks like there is no difference between the groups, the study will stop. If it looks like patients in the group that were treated with both Gemcitabine and ON 01910.Na survive longer, the study will continue into a second part where more patients will be treated in order to confirm and better understand the findings of the first part of the study.
