Name: Capecitabine+Cisplatin Type: Drug
Name: Docetaxel+Capecitabine Type: Drug
Overall Status
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ERCC1(excision repair cross-complementation 1 ) expression has effects on platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer, and to explore if ERCC1 can act as a biological predictor for the individual therapy of gastric cancer
Detailed Description
This is a prospective, multi-center, randomized control clinical trial, aimed to demonstrate if ERCC1 expression could predict the efficacy of platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. A total of 180 patients are planned to be enrolled into the study. ERCC1 protein expression in paraffin-embedding tumor tissue is examined by immunohistochemistry (IHC). Patients with low ERCC1 expression (group L) will be treated with XP regimen. Patients with high ERCC1 expression will be randomized into group H-A or group H-B, and be treated with XP or DX regimen, respectively. The primary end point is progression free survival (PFS), and the secondary end points include the median overall survival, objective response rate (ORR),disease control rate(DCR), duration of response, safety(number and degree of adverse events), and the quality of life (QOL).
