Primary Outcome Measures:
  • time to progression [ Time Frame: every six weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • toxicity [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: July 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
administer sorafenib 400mg bid until disease progression or intolerable toxicity or patients withdrawal of consent
Drug: sorafenib
sorafenib 400mg bid, and it should be continued until disease progression or intolerable toxicity or patients withdrawal of consent
Other Name: treatment group

Detailed Description:
Up to now, although FU based, cisplatin based and taxane based regimen, and ECF regimen have been suggested as the first line therapy for A/MGC by FDA, there is no standard regimen for patients with A/MGC as second line treatment. Based on the promising results of sorafenib in primary hepatic carcinoma and renal cancer, we design this clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, time to progression and overall survival of sorafenib for A/MGC patients as a second line treatment.
