[Dear Doctor [NAME]
[ADDRESS]
Example: [STUDY NAME] is a multi-centre, phase II study of doublet immunotherapy (durvalumab + tremelimumab)
in combination with standard chemotherapy regimens (gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel) versus standard
chemotherapy in patients with newly diagnosed, untreated, metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
Patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio (doublet immunotherapy:standard chemotherapy). Efficacy for all patients
will be assessed by objective tumour assessments every 8 weeks until treatment discontinuation due to progression
or toxicity. All patients will be followed every 3 months for survival after progression is confirmed.
The primary end point is Progression Free Survival (PFS). The main secondary end points are Overall Response
Rate (ORR), Duration of Response (DoR), overall survival (OS), safety and tolerability
[STUDY NAME] is currently recruiting patients and more information about the study main criteria can be found in
the following pages.
Please feel free to refer your patients or contact me for more information about this trial.
