|Adenocarcinoma||Drug: Docetaxel Drug: Oxaliplatin Drug: Capecitabine Drug: Trastuzumab||Not Applicable|
To define the maximum tolerated dose of the combination of taxotere, eloxatin and capecitabine (TEX) in combination with herceptin given every third week as first- line treatment in patients with HER2-positive advanced gastro-esophageal cancer.
Estimating response-rate, progression free survival and overall survival
This dose-finding study is planned to include 15 patients with HER2 positive gastro-esophageal cancer, adenocarcinoma. Patients will be included in cohorts of three at progressively higher dose levels.
Chemotherapy will be repeated day 1 every third week to a maximum of eight cycles. Treatment with trastuzumab will continue until disease progression. Dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) will be evaluated after the first cycle. In case of DLT among one of the three patients during the first course of treatment additional three patients will be added at the respective dose level. Dose escalation is continued if 0/3 or 1/6 patients experience DLT.
Patients will be evaluated with a ct- scan at baseline and after every three cycles to exclude progression and evaluate response. Response is assessed by investigators according to RECIST version 1.1.
Blood counts regarding tumour biology will be collected at baseline before 2nd, 4th and 7th cycle and 4 weeks after ended treatment. After completion of treatment patients will be followed every third month until progression or death.

- To determine maximum tolerable dose (MTD) for the combination regime TEX [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The investigators have planned to examine 3 dose levels including 3 patients at each level with escalating doses of docetaxel from 42 mg/m² to 60 mg/m² and fixed doses of oxaliplatin (100 mg/m²), capecitabine 625 mg/m² x 2 and trastuzumab 6 mg/kg.
- Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Time from inclusion to disease progression or death of any cause.
- Survival [ Time Frame: 4 years ]Time from inclusion to death of any cause.
- Response rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]According to RECIST version 1.1.
