Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
administer cetuximab in combination with modified FOLFIRI
Drug: cetuximab
cetuximab 400mg/m2 as initial dose, subsequently at 250mg/m2 weekly dose. CPT-11 180 mg/m2 CF 200 mg/m2 5Fu 400mg/m2 bolus, followed by 2.4g/m2 continuously intravenous infusion for 46 hours, days 1 and 15, every 4 weeks per cycle
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 cetuximab combined with FOLFIRI in metastatic colorectal cancer, we design this clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of cetuximab combined with FOLFIRI for A/MGC patients as a second line treatment.
