Prospective Study With FLOT in Patients With Locally Advanced, Limited Metastatic or Extensive Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Stomach or Esophagogastric Junction
Patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric carcinoma or carcinoma of the esophagogastric junction without prior palliative therapy will be treated with 8 cycles of the FLOT scheme (up to 12 cycles if the response is favourable). Prior to enrollment a unique and detailed clinical evaluation of the dissemination of the disease will be done which includes a differentiated regard of the metastatic status. patients will be classified as having either (A) locally advanced, (B) limited metastatic, or (C) extensive metastatic disease. In arms A and B surgical intervention is planned if operability is reached. The hypothesis is that by classifying patients more individually by the state of their disease, patients in arm B will have a significantly prolonged overall survival compared to patients in arm C.
250 patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric carcinoma or carcinoma of the esophagogastric junction without prior palliative therapy will be treated with 8 cycles of the FLOT scheme (up to 12 cycles if the response is favourable). Prior to enrolment a unique and detailed clinical evaluation of the dissemination of the disease will be done which includes a differentiated regard of the M-category in the TNM classification. A prospective stratification will classify the patients as having either (A) locally advanced, (B) limited metastatic, or (C) extensive metastatic disease. In addition, the pharmacogenetic risk profile of the patients will be evaluated by a combined analysis of two genetic polymorphisms of the metabolism of the applied substances (XPD312, GSTT1). For the assessment of the disease, reference regions are examined by CT or MRI scans and if applicable endoscopy prior to the start of the study, every 2 months during and after the end of therapy until progression of the disease occurs. Evaluation of quality of life (by standard forms like EORTC-Q30 and others) is continued after progression. Clinical examinations (blood count, assessment of toxicity, anamnesis) is performed every two weeks for evaluation of toxicity and application of chemotherapy. After informed consent is given, peripheral blood of the patient will be analysed for the pharmacogenetic risk profile. Representative tumor material will be analysed by immunohistochemistry and quantitative PCR for the expression of several molecular factors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.
The active metabolite of FOLIC ACID. Leucovorin is used principally as its calcium salt as an antidote to folic acid antagonists which block the conversion of folic acid to folinic acid.
A proto-oncogene protein and member of the Wnt family of proteins. It is frequently up-regulated in human GASTRIC CANCER and is a tumor marker (TUMOR MARKERS, BIOLOGICAL) of gastric and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A strong corrosive acid that is commonly used as a laboratory reagent. It is formed by dissolving hydrogen chloride in water. GASTRIC ACID is the hydrochloric acid component of GASTRIC JUICE.
Hydrochloric acid present in GASTRIC JUICE.
The main objective of this trial is to explore the effect of combining an established chemotherapy regimen (FLOX), based on 5-fluorouracil, folinic acid, and oxaliplatin (Eloxatin®), with...
The rationale of the NEO-FLOT-trial consists of an intensification of the neoadjuvant treatment. This strategy is based upon the clear advantage of perioperative treatment and the fact,...
This phase II trial will evaluate, in first line advanced or metastatic gastric cancer, the efficacy and tolerance of another oxaliplatin, 5FU bolus combination already tested in advanced...
The aim of this study was to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of bolus mitomycin C (MMC) in combination with 24 h-continuous infusion of 5-fluorouracil (FU) plus folinic acid, and t...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, oxaliplatin, and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stoppin...
Multicenter, randomized phase II trial of bevacizumab plus folinic acid, fluorouracil, gemcitabine (FFG) versus bevacizumab plus folinic acid, fluorouracil, oxaliplatin (FOLFOX4) as first-line therapy for patients with advanced colorectal cancer.
Purpose To assess safety and efficacy of folinic acid, 5-fluorouracil, gemcitabine (FFG) and folinic acid, fluorouracil, oxaliplatin (FOLFOX4) regimens with added bevacizumab as first-line treatment i...
BACKGROUND: A chemotherapy regimen with oxaliplatin, fluorouracil, and leucovorin is commonly used to treat advanced gastric cancer (AGC). This study was designed to compare the...
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Small bowel adenocarcinoma is a rare malignancy associated with a poor prognosis and there is little evidence of effective treatment. Recurrent small bowel adenocarcinoma is an...
This multicenter phase II study was designed to determine the efficacy and tolerability of oxaliplatin, levoforinate, and infusional 5-fluorouracil (FOLFOX4) as a second-line therapy for Japanese pati...
