The Role of Postoperative Cycles in the Perioperative Chemotherapy for Gastric Cancer



Phase 2/Phase 3

Taking into account the substantial doubts concerning the potential benefit of postoperative part in the perioperative chemotherapy regimen we designed a study assessing value of this approach in gastric cancer. To improve compliance with a protocol regimen of this aggressive combined therapy we replaced tested in the MAGIC trial ECF regimen with more effective and better tolerable EOX chemotherapy regimen. The value of postoperative three-cycle EOX regimen will be tested in patients with locoregionally advanced gastric cancer with positive pathological response to preoperative three-cycle EOX chemotherapy regimen. The patients will be randomized to the postoperative chemotherapy or to the follow-up arm.
