Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response rate [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients will be followed for disease evaluation every eight (8) weeks from the first day of chemotherapy until the first documentation of disease progression

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients will be evaluated from the date of the first chemotherapy cycle until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients will be evaluated for overall survival from the date of the first chemotherapy cycle until the date of death from any cause

  • Maximum Tolerated Dose of the combination [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Patients will be evaluated for toxicity profil on Day 1 of the first two chemotherapy cycle (cycle repeated every 2 weeks)

Estimated Enrollment: 108
Study Start Date: July 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Panitumumab plus DCF
Drug: Pazopanib
Other Name: Pazopanib: 800mg once a day for up to 2 years from date of first dose

Detailed Description:

Investigators propose a phase I/II study in order to evaluate the effect of panitumumab when combined with an active regimen, such as DCF (Docetaxel/Cisplatin/Fluourouracil), in chemotherapy - naive patients with advanced cancer of the stomach.

Investigators hypothesize that the addition of panitumumab to DCF regimen in advanced cancer of the stomach and gastroesophageal junction is feasible, well tolerated and could achieve an objective response rate of greater than 40%.

The 2-weekly schedule of DCF will be used as chemotherapy since a recently presented trial demonstrated a comparable efficacy but a more favourable toxicity profile comparable to the 3-weekly schedule.
