Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Tesetaxel-capecitabine-cisplatin
Type: Drug
Overall Status
Cisplatin, an intravenously administered platinum agent, in combination with an intravenously administered taxane and capecitabine has been shown to improve time to disease progression and overall survival in previously untreated patients with gastric cancer.

This study is being performed to evaluate an orally administered taxane (tesetaxel) in combination with cisplatin and capecitabine in previously untreated patients with gastric cancer.
