Brief Summary:
This is an open label, single-arm phase II, multi-institutional trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of nab-paclitaxel and FOLFOX (FOLFOX-A) as first line therapy for patients diagnosed with histologically-confirmed advanced gastric/GEJ adenocarcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastro-Esophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma Gastric Cancer Drug: Nab-paclitaxel 150 mg/m^2 Drug: Oxaliplatin 85 mg/m^2 Drug: 5-FU 1200 mg/m^2 x 2 D Drug: Leucovorin 400 mg/m^2 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
All patients will receive FOLFOX-A every 14 days of each cycle (1 cycle = 28 days). Nab-paclitaxel will be given at a dose of 150 mg/m^2 IV over 30 minutes, followed by oxaliplatin IV 85 mg/m^2 and leucovorin IV 400 mg/m^2 over 2 hours, and 5-FU as a continuous IV infusion over Day 1 and Day 2 (for a total dose of 2400mg/m^2 over 46-48 hours.). Radiographic assessment will be performed at baseline and every 8 weeks to evaluate response to treatment by RECIST Version 1.1 guidelines. Patients may continue to receive treatment until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    partial or complete response of FOLFOX combined with nab-paclitaxel (FOLFOX-A) in patients with advanced gastric, gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier and univariate testing will be done via the log rank test (median time to event)

  2. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier and univariate testing will be done via the log rank test (median time to event)

  3. Time to Progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier and univariate testing will be done via the log rank test (median time to event)

  4. Best Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    will be summarized by count and percent of subjects with each ordinal response analyzed by Cochran-Mantel-Hanzel test

  5. Best Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    will be summarized by count and percent of subjects with each ordinal response analyzed by Cochran-Mantel-Hanzel test

  6. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    grade 3 and 4 adverse events defined by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 4

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Subject must meet all of the following applicable inclusion criteria to participate in this study:

  • Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information.
  • Age ≥ 18 years at the time of consent.
  • ECOG Performance Status of 0-1 within 28 days prior to registration.
  • Histologically-confirmed advanced or metastatic unresectable gastric carcinoma, or adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction.
  • Measurable disease according to RECIST v1.1 for solid tumors, within 28 days prior to registration.
  • Demonstrate adequate organ function as described below; all screening labs to be obtained within 28 days prior to registration:

    • Bilirubin < 1.5 mg/dL
    • Patients must have adequate liver function: AST and ALT < 2.5 x upper limit of normal, alkaline phosphatase < 2.5 x upper limit of normal, unless bone or liver metastasis is present (≤5 x upper limit of normal).
    • Patients must have adequate bone marrow function: Platelets >100,000 cells/mm^3 (transfusion independent, defined as not receiving platelet transfusions within 7 days prior to laboratory sample), Hemoglobin > 9.0g/dL and ANC > 1,500 cells/mm^3.
    • Patients must have adequate renal function: creatinine <1.5 mg/dL or creatinine clearance ≥60mL/min is recommended; however, institutional norms are acceptable.
  • Females of child-bearing potential (defined as a sexually mature woman who (1) has not undergone hysterectomy [the surgical removal of the uterus] or bilateral oophorectomy [the surgical removal of both ovaries] or (2) has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months [i.e., has had menses at any time during the preceding 24 consecutive months]) must:

    • Have a negative serum pregnancy test (β -hCG) result at screening and agree to ongoing pregnancy testing prior to each treatment and after the end of study therapy. This applies even if the subject practices true abstinence from heterosexual contact.
    • Male subjects must practice true abstinence or agree to use a condom during sexual contact with a pregnant female or a female of childbearing potential while participating in the study, during dose interruptions and for 6 months following IP discontinuation, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy.

  • Preexisting peripheral neuropathy is not allowed from any cause.
  • Known history of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or Hepatitis C (baseline testing is not required).
  • Patients with active sepsis or pneumonitis.
  • Known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis. Subjects with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are stable (without evidence of progression by imaging for at least four weeks prior to trial registration and any neurologic symptoms have returned to baseline), have no evidence of new or enlarging brain metastases, and are not using steroids for at least 7 days prior to trial registration.
  • Known hypersensitivity to fluorouracil (5-FU), oxaliplatin, or other platinum agents.
  • Known hypersensitivity to nab-paclitaxel or any of its excipients.
  • Has known dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency (DPD) deficiency (testing not required).
  • Ongoing or active infection requiring systemic treatment (must be afebrile for ≥ 48 hours prior to study registration).
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to any of the following:

    • Symptomatic congestive heart failure
    • Unstable angina pectoris

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding (NOTE: breast milk cannot be stored for future use while the mother is being treated on study).
  • Known additional malignancy within the past 3 years. Exceptions include treated localized basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, in situ cervical or vulvar carcinoma that has undergone potentially curative therapy, superficial bladder tumors (Ta, Tis & T1), ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast and low grade prostate cancer (Gleason sore 6). Any cancer curatively treated > 3 years prior to registration with no clinical evidence of recurrence is permitted.
  • Psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
  • Any other illness or condition that the treating investigator feels would interfere with study compliance or would compromise the patient's safety or study endpoints.
