Metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinomas are often diagnosed with concomitant metastases. This stage is incurable with a survival of less than one year. Patient's management is based on chemotherapy and best supportive care. After years of negative phase III clinical trials, FOLFIRINOX and gemcitabine-nab-paclitaxel have demonstrated their superiority over gemcitabine alone. Recently, liposomal irinotecan in association with fluoro-uracile has also shown interesting results in the second-line setting. Other agents are currently investigated with potential new therapeutic regimens to define.
