  • Key Eligibility

    1.Signed, written Institutional Review Board/Ethics Committee-approved Informed Consent Form (ICF).
    2.Stage IV pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) with histological confirmation of PDA via archived or fresh core biopsy of either the primary tumor or 1 metastatic site.
    3.Participants must be determined to be hyaluronan-high based on tumor biopsy that meets the requirements noted in the previous inclusion criterion.
    4.At least 1 tumor metastasis measurable on computed tomography (CT) scan and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) per the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1 criteria, excluding the primary pancreatic lesion.
    5.If a participant has had adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy and/or therapy for locally advanced disease (chemotherapy for non-metastatic pancreatic cancer in combination with or without radiation therapy), tumor recurrence or disease progression must have occurred no sooner than 6 months after completing the last dose of the aforementioned therapies, provided all toxicities have returned to baseline or ≤ Grade 1.
    6.Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1.
