France-based Ipsen and Servier have revealed preliminary data from the Phase 1/2 study of the investigational use of liposomal irinotecan (ONIVYDE) in combination with five- fluorouracil/leucovorin (5-FU/LV) and oxaliplatin (OX) in study patients with earlier untreated metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma
