Background: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy has become a powerful tool to convert borderline resectable (BRPC) and locally advanced pancreatic cancers (LAPC) into a resectable scenario. However, data analyzing the optimal type of therapy are scarce. In the present multicenter retrospective study, we evaluated the influence of FOLFIRINOX (FFX) and gemcitabine (GEM)-based neoadjuvant therapy on patient prognosis.
