Investigational Drug Therapy for Newly Diagnosed, Advanced Biliary Tract Cancers

Description

Adults with newly diagnosed, advanced biliary tract (cholangiocarcinoma or gallbladder) cancer sought for a study comparing two different combinations of drugs to see which is better.

Overview

We are studying whether adding a third chemotherapy to the usual two chemotherapies better treats newly diagnosed biliary tract cancers.

What we're hoping for

We hope to evaluate an investigational 3-chemotherapy drug treatment to see if it treats newly diagnosed advanced biliary tract cancers better than the usual 2-chemotherapy drug treatment and record any side effects experienced by study volunteers
