Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progress free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Describe median PFS with a 95% confidence interval.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rates [ Time Frame: 1 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Describe the overall response rate with a 95% confidence interval.

  • Toxicity of HAI [ Time Frame: 1 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Toxicity as measured by NCI Common Toxicity Criteria

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Describe median overall survival with a 95% confidence interval and estimate the overall survival rate at 12 and 24 months with 24 months with a 95% confidence interval.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arterial infusion Drug: Oxaliplatin, Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, Capecitabine
HAI of Oxaliplatin and Fluorouracil: Oxaliplatin 130mg/m2 in split daily doses for 3 days, Fluorouracil 3000 mg/m2 in split daily doses for 3 days. Intraarterial Oxaliplatin plus intravenous Leucovorin 200 mg/m2 simultaneously over 2 hours followed by intraarterial Fluorouracil over 22 hours on Days 1-3 of each cycle, repeat every 21 days. After 4-6 cycles of HAI, maintenance treatment continue, Maintenance of Oral capecitabine 1,000 mg/m2 twice a day from days 1-14, Cycles were repeated every 21 days.
