Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: endostar+chemotherapy Drug: endostar, cisplatin, capecitabine

Product 1: endostar

Dosing schedule: 15mg daily dose, d1-14

Mode of administration: intravenously

Drug: capecitabine

Product 2: capecitabine

Dosing schedule: 1000mg/m2 bid, days 1-14, every 3 weeks

Mode of administration: orally

Drug: cisplatin

Product 3: cisplatin

Dosing schedule: 80mg/m2, day 1 of every 3 weeks

Mode of administration: intravenously

Detailed Description:
Endostar, a recombinant human endostatin, has shown its antitumor ability in combination in NSCLC and breast cancer. But to gastric cancer, few clinical data has been reported. However, bevacizumab, an angiogenesis inhibitor was shown effective in combination with chemotherapy in advanced gastric cancer in some phase II study. So in this study, we want to explore whether endostar is also effective and safe in advanced gastric cancer. Response predictive factor is expected to be identified.
