This double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter, international, parallel arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Perjeta (pertuzumab) in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab), fluoropyrimidine and cisplatin as first-line treatment in patients with HER2-positive metastatic gastroesophageal junction or gastric cancer. Patients will be randomized to receive Perjeta 840 mg or placebo intravenously (iv) every 3 weeks in combination with Herceptin (initial dose of 8 mg/kg iv followed by 6 mg/kg iv every 3 weeks) and cisplatin and fluoropyrimidine (capecitabine or 5-fluorouracil) for the first 6 treatment cycles. Patients will continue to receive Perjeta or placebo and Herceptin until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival: Time from randomization to death of any cause [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival: Time from randomization to first occurrence of disease progression, as determined by the investigator according to RECIST v1.1 criteria, or death of any cause [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall objective response (partial response + complete response) occurring on two consecutive occasions >/= 4 weeks apart, as determined by the investigator according to RECIST v1.1 criteria [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of objective response: Time from occurrence of objective response to progressive disease, as determined by investigator according to RECIST v1.1 criteria, or death of any cause [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical benefit rate: Best response of complete response or partial response or stable disease for 6 weeks or longer, as determined by the investigator according to RECIST v1.1 criteria [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (symptomatic or asymptomatic) [ Time Frame: approximately 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
