Abstract

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most common malignant neoplasms with a short survival time and a low cure rate. This neoplasm progresses quickly, it is often diagnosed in the advanced stage, which means that systemic treatment regimens are not sufficiently effective. A case of 65-year-old patient with metastatic pancreatic cancer who underwent sequential chemotherapy with the use of liposomal irinotecan was presented.
