RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate of patients with metastatic or recurrent adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction when treated with irinotecan, fluorouracil, and leucovorin calcium. II. Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity, and reversibility of toxicity, of this regimen in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive irinotecan IV over 90 minutes, leucovorin calcium IV over 15 minutes, and fluorouracil IV once weekly for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks of rest. Treatment continues every 6 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients are followed at 30 days, and then until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-37 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
FOLFIRI regimen, fluorouracil, irinotecan hydrochloride, leucovorin calcium

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 naphthalene derivative and CALCIMIMETIC AGENT that increases the sensitivity of PARATHYROID GLAND calcium-sensing receptors to serum calcium. This action reduces parathyroid hormone secretion and decreases serum calcium in the treatment of PARATHYROID DISEASES.
