A 3-year disease free survival in a patient with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma following folfirinox chemotherapy: A case report.

Metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma confers a poor prognosis. Even with recent treatments, complete response of the disease is still very rare. In this case report, we present the case of a 67-yearold male with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma who achieved a complete response lasting for more than three years after receiving induction chemotherapy with FOLFIRINOX for 16 months followed by same regimen maintenance for one year. Therefore, this evidence-based approach is recommended for highly selected patients with sustained responses to chemotherapy.
