Erlotinib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Advanced Esophageal Cancer or Stomach Cancer
This phase II trial is studying erlotinib hydrochloride to see how well it works in treating patients with advanced esophageal cancer or stomach cancer. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of cancer by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth.

Adenocarcinoma of the Gastroesophageal Junction
Recurrent Esophageal Cancer
Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus
Stage III Esophageal Cancer
Stage IV Esophageal Cancer

- Major response rate (complete and partial response) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Toxicities, graded according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Degree of dysphagia relief [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to progression [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and confidence intervals will be formed for median time to progression.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and confidence intervals will be formed for median survival time.
|Study Start Date:||June 2002|

I. Determine the objective response rate in patients with advanced carcinoma of the esophagus or gastroesophageal junction treated with erlotinib (erlotinib hydrochloride).
II. Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this drug. III. Determine the degree of dysphagia relief in patients treated with this drug.
IV. Determine the toxicity and tolerability of this drug in these patients. V. Correlate epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression with response to treatment in these patients.
Patients receive erlotinib hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily (QD). Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
