This single arm study will assess the safety and efficacy of Xeloda, given in combination with standard chemotherapy regimens, for the first-line treatment of advanced and/or metastatic gastric cancer. All patients will receive Xeloda in combination with one of 4 standard chemotherapy regimens; the dose of Xeloda will be from 625mg/m2 - 1000mg/m2 bid orally, depending on the chemotherapy regimen used. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, and the target sample size is 100-500 individuals.
