Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: S-1 plus DC-CIK

Chemotherapy: S-1 is administered orally twice daily at a dose of 80,100, or 120mg/day for body surface areas of less than 1.25m2, between 1.25m2 and less than 1.5, or 1.5m2 or greater, respectively, for 14 consecutive days, followed by a 7-day rest, repeated every 3 weeks.

DC-CIK Immunotherapy:Mononuclear cells were collected aseptically with blood cell separator composition aphaeresis 3 days before administrating S-1 , and cultured DC-CIK cells for 10 days. Cells were infused back to the patients in 3 times.

Other: S-1 plus DC-CIK
