Overall Status
Patients with inoperable, locally advanced or recurrent and/or HER2-positive metastatic gastric or gastro-esophageal junction cancer, with no prior treatment for metastatic disease are to be recruited in the study. In the current study, the efficacy and safety of Trastuzumab in combination with Capecitabine/Docetaxel will be evaluated in Chinese patients with HER2 positive advanced or recurrent gastric cancer.60 patients could provide adequate precision rather than controlling type I&II error. Assuming the target PFS is 6.7m, 60 patients will give 90% CI of (5.5, 8.4). Considering the 5% drop out rate, 65 patients will be enrolled.
Detailed Description
This is a phase II, multi-center, open label, single arm, interventional study. Patients with HER2-positive metastatic gastric or gastro-esophageal junction adenocarcinoma who have not received prior treatment for metastatic disease will be treated with trastuzumab(8 mg/kg loading dose followed by 6 mg/kg every 3 weeks ),Capecitabine(2000mg/m2d, d1-14,every 3 weeks) and Docetaxel (60mg/m2 every 3 weeks for 6 cycles).All patients will continue to receive trastuzumab and Capecitabine until either disease progression, occurrence of unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal from the study for another reason.Primary endpoints is PFS and secondary endpoints are ORR, OS and Safety.Recruitment period:24 months;PFS follow-up period: 80% PFS events;OS follow-up period: 18 months or 80% OS events, whichever occurs first.
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: 75 Years
Minimum Age: 18 Years
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

1. Male or female. Age: 18-75 years.

2. Histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastro-esophageal junction with inoperable locally advanced or recurrent and/or metastatic disease, not amenable to curative therapy.

3. Measurable disease, according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1, assessed using imaging techniques (CT or MRI).

4. HER2 positive tumor (primary tumor or metastasis, HER2 positive as defined by IHC2+ and a confirmatory FISH+ result (HER2:CEP17 ratio ≥2), or by an IHC 3+ result) as assessed by the central laboratory. Accurate and validated assay methods will be used.

5. ECOG Performance status 0-1.

6. Life expectancy of at least 3 months.

7. Signed informed consent.

8. Previous chemotherapy for advanced/metastatic disease (prior adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy is allowed if at least 6 months has elapsed between completion of adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy and enrollment into the study; adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy with docetaxel is not allowed).

9 .Lack of physical integrity of the upper gastrointestinal tract or malabsorption syndrome (e.g. patients with partial or total gastrectomy can enter the study, but not those with a jejunostomy probe).

10. Patients with active (significant or uncontrolled) gastrointestinal bleeding.

11. Residual relevant toxicity resulting from previous therapy (with the exception of alopecia), e.g. neurologic toxicity ≥ grade 2 NCI-CTCAE version 4.0.

12. Other malignancy within the last 5 years, except for carcinoma in situ of the cervix, or basal cell carcinoma.

13. Hematologic, Biochemical and Organ Function 14. Neutrophil count < 1.5 × 109/L, or platelet count < 100 × 109/L. 15. Serum bilirubin > 1.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN); or, AST or ALT > 2.5 × ULN (or > 5 × ULN in patients with liver metastases); or, alkaline phosphatase > 2.5 × ULN (or > 5 × ULN in patients with liver metastases, or > 10 × ULN in patients with bone but no liver metastases); or albumin < 25 g/L.

16. Creatinine clearance < 60 mL/min.

Exclusion Criteria:

1. History of documented congestive heart failure; angina pectoris requiring medication; evidence of transmural myocardial infarction on ECG; poorly controlled hypertension (systolic BP > 180 mmHg or diastolic BP > 100 mmHg); clinically significant valvular heart disease; or high risk uncontrollable arrhythmias.

2. Baseline LVEF < 50% (measured by echocardiography or MUGA).

3. Patients with dyspnea at rest due to complications of advanced malignancy or other disease, or who require supportive oxygen therapy.

4. Patients receiving chronic or high dose corticosteroid therapy. (Inhaled steroids and short courses of oral steroids for anti-emesis or as an appetite stimulant are allowed).

5. Known dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency.

6. History or clinical evidence of brain metastases.

7. Serious uncontrolled systemic intercurrent illness, e.g. infections or poorly controlled diabetes.

8. Positive serum pregnancy test in women of childbearing potential.

9. Subjects with reproductive potential not willing to use an effective method of contraception.

10. Received any investigational drug treatment within 4 weeks of start of study treatment.

11. Radiotherapy within 4 weeks of start of study treatment (2 week interval allowed if palliative radiotherapy given to bone metastatic site peripherally and patient recovered from any acute toxicity).

12. Major surgery within 4 weeks of start of study treatment, without complete recovery.

13. Patients with known active infection with HIV, HBV, or HCV.

14. Known hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs.
