This is a multicenter, single arm, open-label Phase 1/2 study of pemetrexed plus cisplatin for patients with unresectable, advanced gastric cancer who had no prior palliative chemotherapy. Phase 1 was designed to determine the optimal dose of pemetrexed for its phase 2, which has been completed and now a total of 60 qualified patients will be enrolled in the phase 2 of this study. The treating physician will determined the maximum number of cycles of pemetrexed plus cisplatin that a patient may receive in this study.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and the best dose of methoxyamine when given together with cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium and to see how well it works in treating patient...
This study will assess the maximum tolerated dose, overall safety and antitumor activity of SU011248 in combination with pemetrexed, pemetrexed and cisplatin or pemetrexed and carboplatin ...

The most common side effects of the cancer chemotherapy drug cisplatin are nausea and vomiting. These effects are heavily influenced by orexigenic and anorexigenic peptides. We explored the effects of...

Helicobacter pylori infection is a major risk factor for the development of gastric cancer. Aberrant expression of microRNAs is strongly implicated in gastric tumorigenesis; however, their contributio...
Although cisplatin is a potent anticancer drug, it instigates oxidative and pro-inflammatory reactions which poses significant and distressing clinical symptoms in patients including nausea and vomiti...
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.
Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.
