Clinical Trial Summary

Cardiovascular diseases and cancers, the two leading causes of death in Canada, require cholesterol to sustain their progression. All cells require cholesterol, but cancer cells have much higher needs to sustain growth, division and metastasis. The availability of new cholesterol-lowering drugs developed to protect patients from heart diseases has resulted in unprecedented low levels of cholesterol. The combination of atorvastatin, ezetimibe and Repatha, which are 3 cholesterol-lowering drugs used in combination, is safe, well tolerated and efficient over years of treatment. Recent reports indicate that abundant cholesterol supplies are required to sustain the progression of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas. This proof-of-concept study aims to verify the feasibility, the acceptability and gain preliminary data on adding a cholesterol shortage on top of FOLFIRINOX (standard chemotherapy) in newly diagnosed patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinomas. It is expected that a drug-induced cholesterol shortage will slow-down or stop the progression of pancreatic adenocarcinomas while increasing the response to chemotherapy.
