The purpose of this study is to investigate whether cetuximab (Erbitux®) with cisplatin and capecitabine (Xeloda) as 1st line treatment in the advanced gastric cancer is effective.
Gastric cancer remains one of the major causes of cancer deaths around the world, especially in Asia. Previous study of ML17032 has proved that XP(capecitabine plus cisplatin)is effective in advanced gastric cancer, with the overall response rate of 41%, the median PFS of 5.6 month. Recently, the EGFR monoclonal antibody of cetuximab has shown to be successful in treating advanced colorectal cancer with or without chemotherapy. Since EGFR also express in gastric cancer, A single arm, open, multicenter phase II study of cetuximab in combination with cisplatin and capecitabine as first line treatment in patient with advanced gastric cancer.If applicable, the value of mutations in k-ras, b-raf, P53, and EGFR copy number to predict the clinical response to cetuximab in advanced gastric cancer patients will also be accessed.Tumor tissue from study patients will be checked for k-ras, b-raf, and P53 mutation by sequencing and for EGFR copy number by chromogenic in situ hybridization. DNA will be extracted from paraffin-embedded samples.

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
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.
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.
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.
