This study is an open-label, single center, nonrandomized study, consisting of a dose-escalating phase I study in advanced solid cancer and a subsequent phase II study in metastatic gastric cancer. In phase I study, we aim to determine the MTD and the recommended dose of S-1 combined with docetaxel given every 3 weeks. Dose level and escalating schedule are followings

  • S-1(level 0, 1/2, 3/4, 5: 60, 70, 80, 90 mg/m2/day) q 12 hours po Days 1-14)
  • Docetaxel (level 0/1,2/3, 4/5: 25, 30, 35 mg/m2) mixed in d5w 200 ml iv over 60 min: Days 1, 8with dexamethasone 8 mg po q 12hr for 3 days (total 6 doses: D0-2)and parenteral pheniramine maleate 1 ample (45.5mg) before docetaxel

Condition Intervention Phase
Stomach Neoplasms Drug: S-1, Docetaxel Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
