Brief Summary:
Number of patients planned The study adopted two parallel phase II studies, with the same P1 and P0 in each arm, suggested by Logan. The investigators hypothesized a target ORR of interest, P1=50, and a lower ORR, P0=25 with the treatment of DCS and DCF, respectively. Under the assumption of α-error=0.05 and β-error= 0.2, using sample size tables of A'Hern, 26 patients were required per arm to achieve the desired statistical power. Finally, taking a 20% drop-out rate into consideration, the overall number of enrolled patients was 62.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastric Cancer Drug: DCS (docetaxel with cisplatin with TS-1) Drug: DCF (docetaxel with cisplatin with 5-FU) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Treatment scheme

  • Screening period: D-21 to D1 (treatment day)
  • Preoperative screening includes EUS, laparoscopy (optional), EGD and abd-pelvic CT scan.
  • Preoperative clinical staging is based on the guideline of Japanese Gastric Cancer Association (JGCA, 1998)
  • Tumor response is assessed every 2 cycles (6 weeks)
  • Treatment is repeated until,.

    • 4 cycles
    • progressive disease
    • unacceptable toxicity
    • patient's withdrawal
  • Gastric surgery should be performed within 4~6 weeks of the last dose of chemotherapy
  • Gastric surgery is for curative aim and should include ≥ D2 LN dissection.
  • Patients who received R0 resection should receive at least 4-cycled adjuvant chemotherapy with 5-FU and cisplatin.
  • Palliative chemotherapy should be indicated for inoperable progressive disease or who failed curative resection. 5-FU and oxaliplatin combination is recommended as first-line therapy.
  • Follow up for survival is repeated every 3 months for 2 years

Study period Patient enroll period for 12 months., and follow-up duration for further 12 months., resulting total study period of 24 months

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. RECIST(Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors) [ Time Frame: written in the description part below ]
    • safety : every cycle adverse event/serious adversr event evaluation from NCI-CTC(version 3.0)
    • efficacy : tumor response is assessed every 2 cycles (6weeks) -> tumor response assessment(RECIST<Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor> 1.0 version use)
