  Purpose
A phase I/II study is conducted to determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD), dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), and efficacy of a combination chemotherapy using docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (TPF) in Pre-treated patients with metastatic esophageal cancer. The usefulness of the this regimen is evaluated by response rate, median survival time, and progression free survival.

Condition Intervention Phase
Esophageal Cancer Drug: Taxotere Drug: 5-Fluorouracil Drug: Briplatin Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I/II Study of Docetaxel, Cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil(TPF) as Chemotherapy in Pre-treated Patients With Metastatic Esophageal Cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the DLT(Dose Limiting Toxicity) and MTD(Maximum Tolerated Dose) in Phase I setting. Determine the clinical response rate with Recommended dose in Phase II setting. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the clinical response rate of patients in Phase I setting. [ Time Frame: 1-year ]
  • Determine the MST(Median Survival Time) and PFS(Progression Free Survival) in Phase II setting. [ Time Frame: 2-years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30

Primary Completion Date: October 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: Taxotere
30 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 28 day cycle.
Other Name: Docetaxel
Drug: 5-Fluorouracil
800 mg/m2, CIV (CIV.in the vein) on day 1~5 of each 28 day cycle.
Other Name: fluorouracil
Drug: Briplatin
15 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1~4 of each 28 day cycle.
Other Name: Cisplatin

Detailed Description:
Patients with pre-treated measurable metastatic esophageal cancer were included in this trial. Patients received this combination chemotherapy repeated every 28 days until progression disease. Starting dose (dose level 1) were docetaxel 30 mg/m2 on day 1, fixed dose intravenously cisplatin (15 mg/m2/day) and continuous infusion 5-FU (800 mg/m2/day) on day 1-4. DLT was defined as follows (according to NCI-CTC version 2.0); Grade 4 neutropenia lasting for more than 4days, Grade 4 anemia and thrombocytopenia, Grade 3 neutropenia accompanied fever (>38℃) , and Grade 3 non-hematological toxicity (except for nausea, appetite loss , general fatigue). Maximal Tolerated Dose (MTD) is determined when the incidence of critical toxicity exceeds 50% at a certain dose level. Response rate will be calculated according to RECIST criteria.
