Phase II Study of Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and Nanoliposomal Irinotecan in Previously Treated Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer (NAPOLI-2)


This is a research study called NAPOLI-2. It is designed to see how well a specific treatment combination works for people with advanced biliary tract cancer (BTC) who have already been treated with other medications. The treatments used are: Fluorouracil (5-FU): This is a chemotherapy medication that works by interfering with the growth of cancer cells. Leucovorin (LV): This medication helps enhance the effects of 5-FU. Nanoliposomal irinotecan (nal-IRI): This is a type of medication that delivers the chemotherapy drug irinotecan directly to cancer cells. This study is phase II, open label and single arm.

Open-Label: Patients know which treatments are being given to them

Single arm: Patients are randomly assigned to one of two groups. It's like flipping a coin to decide who gets which treatment

Phase II: An advanced point of testing, where they're trying to confirm if a treatment works well.

Biliary Tract Cancer: This is a cancer that forms in the bile ducts, which are tubes that carry bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine
