Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Docetaxel Type: Drug
Name: Cisplatin Type: Drug
Name: S-1 Type: Drug
Overall Status
The combination of Cisplatin and S-1 (CS) achieved a response rate of approximately 45% with the PFS being around 6 months and overall survival time being 13 months in Japanese and Chinese gastric patients. It remains unclear whether the addition of docetaxel to CS would further enhance the efficacy as it dose in DCF(docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil). This is a single center, phase II clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of docetaxel, cisplatin and S-1 (DCS) as first line chemotherapy for patients with advanced gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer.
Detailed Description
This is a single arm trial. All Patients will receive up to 6 cycles of triple chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin and S-1. Given the severe toxicity of DCF regimen, here the total dose of docetaxel and cisplatin is both reduced to 60mg/m2. For patients with CR/PR/SD disease after 6 cycles of chemotherapy, maintenance therapy with S-1 are recommended. Antitumor activity will be evaluated every two cycles according to RECIST1.1.
