RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Alvocidib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving irinotecan hydrochloride together with alvocidib may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying how well giving irinotecan hydrochloride with or without alvocidib works in treating patients with advanced stomach cancer or gastroesophageal junction cancer.
- To examine the antitumor efficacy of irinotecan hydrochloride with vs without alvocidib in patients with p53 wild type advanced gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.
- To evaluate the safety and toxicity of these regimens in these patients.
- To examine other measures of antitumor activity of these regimens, including response rate (in patients with measurable disease) and overall survival.
- To evaluate pre- and post-treatment tumor biopsy samples for p21 and Rad51 expression in patients who agree to undergo tumor biopsies (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center [MSKCC] only).
- To explore the response to these regimens by DNA microarray technology using pre- and post-treatment tumor biopsy samples (MSKCC only).
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive irinotecan hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes and alvocidib IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 8.
- Arm II: Patients receive irinotecan hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8.
In both arms, courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Tumor tissue samples may be collected pre- and post-treatment for correlative laboratory studies.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year.

The benefit of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for treating cancer of the esophagus or the gastroesophageal junction remains controversial. In the present study, we conducte...
A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive adenocarcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the GLANDULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS of origin. Adenocarcinoma in situ of the CERVIX and the LUNG are the most common.
The physiologic or functional barrier to GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX at the esophagogastric junction. Sphincteric muscles remain tonically contracted during the resting state and form the high-pressure zone separating the lumen of the ESOPHAGUS from that of the STOMACH.
