CHARM II: Chemotherapy for Ablation and Resolution of Mucinous Pancreatic Cysts

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of chemotherapeutic
pancreatic cyst ablation using ethanol lavage followed by the infusion of a dual-agent
chemotherapeutic cocktail (paclitaxel + gemcitabine) compared with alcohol-free saline lavage
followed by infusion of the same dual-agent chemotherapeutic cocktail (paclitaxel +
gemcitabine) for the ablation of pancreatic cystic neoplasms using endoscopic ultrasound
guided fine needle infusion (EUS-FNI) for agent delivery.

Intervention
