Use of Trifluridine/Tipiracil and Oxaliplatin as Induction Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Resectable Esophageal or Gastroesophageal Junction (GEJ) Adenocarcinoma

2019-09-25 06:13:28 | BioPortfolio


This phase II trial studies how well trifluridine/tipiracil and oxaliplatin work as the first line of treatment (induction) in treating patients with esophageal or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma that can be removed by surgery (resectable). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as trifluridine/tipiracil and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.



I. Evaluate the pathologic complete response (path CR) rate in participants with esophageal and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma when trifluridine and tipiracil hydrochloride (trifluridine/tipiracil [TAS-102]) and oxaliplatin are used as induction chemotherapy prior to surgical resection.


I. Evaluate the 2-year disease-free survival (DFS) and the 2-year overall survival (OS).

II. To determinate the safety and tolerability of induction chemotherapy with trifluridine/tipiracil (FTD/TPI) and oxaliplatin followed by standard chemoradiation and surgery.


I. Correlate cell-free deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) levels with disease recurrence and metabolic response on positron emission tomography (PET) computed tomography (CT).


Patients receive oxaliplatin intravenously (IV) over 2 hours on day 1 and trifluridine and tipiracil hydrochloride orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 14 days for 3 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then undergo standard of care chemoradiation therapy followed by surgery.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3-6 months for years 1-2, every 6-12 months for years 3-5, and then annually thereafter.
