The ADCI 002 trial is a large multicenter phase II-III prospective randomized controlled trial comparing primary surgery versus primary chemotherapy followed by surgery in patients with a resectable signet ring cell gastric adenocarcinoma

Condition Intervention
Signet Ring Cell Gastric Adenocarcinoma
Procedure: peri-operative chemotherapy
Procedure: Surgery first

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Strategy of Primary Surgery Versus Primary Chemotherapy in Resectable Signet Ring Cell Gastric Adenocarcinoma (ADCI002 Study)

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Lille:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients dead in the 2-years [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-free survival at 2 years [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Disease-free survival at 3 years [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • Overall survival at 3 years [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • R0 resection rate [ Time Frame: within 1 year ]
  • grade III/IV toxicity [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    tolerance will be measured by the rate and grade of chemotherapy's complications

  • post operative morbi-mortality [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Average of patients who benefit from the overall treatment strategy [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • quality of life [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • emotional status [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    It will be assessed by quality of life questionnaire(QLQ-C30, QLQ-STO-22,SF-36) and emotional status questionnaire(CES-D, STAI-Y-A, Brief-IPQ, WCC, ICEC-R, CRA)

Estimated Enrollment: 314

Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2024
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2021 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
