Brief Summary:
Gastric cancer is one of the most prevalent malignancies in China; the survival rate remains poor despite potentially curative resections. Complete surgical resection is the only potentially curative therapy available to patients with gastric cancer. However, even after a complete resection with negative margins, many patients will experience recurrence. In recent years, the radiation therapy in the carcinoma of the stomach represents a new issue that should be addressed accompanying the development of radial physics and radial biology, the clinical application of computed tomographic (CT) simulation and digital reconstitution technique, especially the application of 3-dimensional conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy. Radiation therapy plus concurrent chemotherapy has been demonstrated to cause a significant improvement in overall and disease-free survival according to Intergroup Trial 0116/SWOG 9008. So the investigators designed the trial to see whether a postoperative sequence chemoradiotherapy including oxaliplatin fluorouracil-based regimen can improve survival for advanced gastric cancer.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 2
chemotherapy alone following radical resection
Drug: chemotherapy alone following radical resection
Postoperative chemotherapy regimen: The OLF regimen was administrated: Oxaliplatin, 130 mg/m2/day on day1, i.v. 2 h; fluorouracil, 425 mg/m2/day on day1~5, i.v.; leucovorin, 200 mg/m2/day on day 1~5, i.v.; every 21 days repeated, for 6 cycles.

Experimental: 1
sequence chemoradiotherapy following radical resection
Radiation: sequence chemoradiotherapy

Postoperative radiotherapy regimen: Therapy plan system was formulated by Computed tomographic (CT) simulation. Radiation was delivered with 15MV photons. Radiotherapy consisted of 4500 cGy of radiation at 180 cGy per day, five days per week for five weeks, to the tumor bed, to the margins of resection or the stoma, to the regional nodes. Protection of spinal cord, heart, liver and kidney should be considered.
