Overall Status
The role of post surgery adjuvant chemotherapy is becoming more and more important in AGC (advance gastric cancer). S-1 and combined therapy of Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin are currently accepted as a standard therapy among the AGC patients who were performed gastrectomy from the D2 surgery. However, many improvements will be needed in stage IIIB and IV. Combined chemotherapy of Docetaxel, Capecitabine, and Oxaliplatin may be considered as one of the best treatments for IIB and IV(M0) stage AGC patients who were performed gastrectomy.

Patients who participated in another clinical trial or received another investigational product within 30 days prior to providing informed consent 9. Any of the following within 6 months prior to the study recruitment: Myocardial infarction, severe/unstable angina, coronary/peripheral artery bypass, NYHA class III or IV congestive heart failure, stroke or transient ischemic attack, serious cardiac arrhythmia requiring treatment.

10.

Uncontrolled active infection or sepsis 12. Deep vein thrombosis within 4 weeks prior to providing informed consent 13. Severe acute or chronic disease which may deteriorate the capability to participate in the study or make it difficult to interpret the study results 14. Not fully recovered from surgery 15. Patients who may have difficulty in absorbing orally administered study drug

- Intolerance to oral administration or malabsorption

- Lack of physical integrity of upper gastrointestinal tract is not recovered

- Absorption disorder for any reason

- Ileus

- Chronic inflammatory bowel disease

- Wide resection of small intestine or other disease limiting drug absorption (e.g., gastric dumping syndrome, features of rapid small bowel transit time, absorption disorder after intestine surgery) 16.
