1 *CHARITÉ ONKOLOGIE:Clinical studies in GI cancers
Preliminary Results: A randomised, prospective, multicenter phase III trial of adjuvant chemotherapy with gemcitabine vs. observation in patients with resected pancreatic cancer - CONKO*-001- P.

2 CONKO-001 Rationale Prognosis in disease free survival with pancreatic cancer is still poor Median survival after resection is months Long term survival (>5 years) is percent Bakkevold (1993); Klinkenbijl (1999); Gastrointestinal Study Group (1985, 1987); Neoptolemos (2004)

3 Resected pancreatic cancer Stratification: R; T; N
CONKO-001 Study Design Resected pancreatic cancer 368 patients Stratification: R; T; N Gemcitabine for 6 months Observation for 6 months Follow up every 8 weeks

4 CONKO-001 Disease Monitoring
Ran domi sa t i on Follow up every 8 weeks Gem Ultrasound after week 8 after week 16 CT Scan after week 32 Obs CA 19-9 4 weeks Gem Gemcitabine 1000 mg/m²: d1, 8, 15; q 4 weeks Obs Observation: d1; q 4 weeks

5 CONKO-001 Endpoints Primary Endpoint Secondary Endpoint
Disease free survival (DFS) Secondary Endpoint Overall survival (OS) Toxicity

6 CONKO-001 Entry Criteria Histologically proven resected pancreatic carcinoma Standard operation No measurable disease No prior chemo- or radiotherapy No active infection Karnofsky performance status  50% Adequate hematologic, renal and hepatic function CA 19-9, CEA < 2.5 ULN Start with adjuvant therapy within 6 weeks after resection Written informed consent

7 CONKO-001 Statistics Hypothesis: Statistics: Sample size:
Significant increase in disease free survival (DFS) of at least 6 months due to chemotherapy with gemcitabine Statistics: Kaplan-Meier estimates und two-tailed log-rank test with significance level of 0.05 and a power of 90% Sample size: 368 pts – 184 pts per treatment arm (1:1 ratio) including an estimated drop out rate of up to 20%

8 CONKO-001 Recruitment and Analysis
Time of recruitment: 7/ /04 Recruited patients: 368 Recruiting centres: 88 (Germany, Austria) Date of Analysis: March 2005

9 CONKO-001 Recruitment Patients Patients per month

10 CONKO-001 Patient Disposition
368 patients enrolled 7/ /04 186 pts. for Gemcitabine 182 pts. for Observation 179 eligible* pts. (96%) 177 eligible* pts. (97%) * 7 excluded Patients: 4 pts. lost to follow up 1 pt. without histological proven pc 1 pt. with persistent disease after resection 1 pt. with another tumor disease * 5 excluded Patients: 3 pts. lost to follow up 2 pts. with another tumor disease

11 CONKO-001 Patient Characteristic

12 CONKO-001 Tumor Characteristic

13 CONKO-001 Toxicities WHO Grade III+IV

14 CONKO-001 Toxicities WHO Grade III+IV

15 CONKO-001 Toxicities WHO Grade III+IV

16 CONKO-001 Kaplan Meier Disease Free Survival
Chemotherapy with gemcitabine median: months (95% CI, 12.86; 15.57) 41 % patients censored (+) Observation median: 7.46 months (95% CI, 6.80; 8.11) 22 % patients censored (+) Log Rank: p=0.001

17 CONKO-001 Disease Free Survival

18 CONKO-001 Kaplan Meier Survival
Chemotherapy with gemcitabine 53 % patients censored (+) Observation 45 % patients censored (+)

19 CONKO-001 Preliminary Data Summary
Toxicity of gemcitabine in adjuvant therapy is low Treatment with gemcitabine results in an improvement in disease free survival Favourable overall survival with chemotherapy (no comparative calculations done; 49% of patients censored) Improved longterm (3- and 5-year) survival expected

20 CONKO-001 Conclusions Treatment with gemcitabine in patients with resected pancreatic cancer results in improved disease free survival as compared to observation Gemcitabine may become the standard of care for adjuvant treatment of pancreatic cancer
