The ACTICCA-1 trial is a randomized Phase III trial which looks to compare Gemcitabine and Cisplatin against Capecitabine alone (currently the standard treatment) for those who have had a resection for their cholangiocarcinoma or gall bladder cancer.
ACTICCA-1 is an international multi centre trial, and is currently open in a few locations in the UK, and planned to open in 20+.

The BILCAP Study
Following the result of the long running BILCAP study, those who have undergone a resection for their cholangiocarcinoma or gall bladder cancer, and who fit the eligibility criteria, are now offered Capecitabine chemotherapy.

In this video Dr John Marshall of Georgetown University, and Professor John Primrose of the University of Southampton, discuss the practice-changing findings of the BILCAP study which investigated adjuvant capecitabine for biliary tract cancer (cholangiocarcinoma). The pan-European study that Professor Primrose refers to (6:09 into the interview) is the ACTICCA-1 trial.
