Phase 2 Study of Nanoliposomal Irinotecan with Fluorouracil and Leucovorin in Refractory Advanced High Grade Neuroendocrine Cancer of GI, Unknown or Pancreatic Origin
This phase II trial studies how well liposomal irinotecan, leucovorin, and fluorouracil work in treating patients with high grade neuroendocrine cancer of gastrointestinal, unknown, or pancreatic origin that does not respond to treatment and has spread to other places in the body. Lliposomal irinotecan may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fluorouracil and leucovorin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving liposomal irinotecan, leucovorin and fluorouracil may work better in treating patients with neuroendocrine cancer.
