The combination of capecitabine, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan (CAPOXIRI) may be better than other combinations used to treat earlier stage pancreatic cancer patients with resectable (able to be cut out), borderline resectable, and locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Though all of the drugs in this study have been approved by the FDA, their combination is investigational. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of CAPOXIRI (good and bad) on you and your cancer.
