Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse-free Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Toxicity Profile (According to NCI CTC Version 2.0) [ Time Frame: up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Because safety profile in oncology study is evaluated for each toxicity, it is impossible to present the overall patient number. Instead, we presented the number of patients who declined study therapy due to adverse events or patient will.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 528

Detailed Description:

Stomach cancer is the most common cancer in Korea and one of the major health problems worldwide. The most effective treatment for gastric cancer is curative surgical resection of primary tumor. However, a substantial number of patients eventually die of recurrences after curative resection. A number of randomized trials investigating the role of adjuvant chemotherapy have been conducted. However, the efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy is still controversial and varied between Western and Asian trials. Meta-analysis of Western trials didn't demonstrate the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy after curative resection. Conversely, some Asian studies have demonstrated the efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy after curative resection. In a previous study, mitomycin plus tegafur prolonged the survival in resected gastric cancer compared to no treatment.

This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of the intraperitoneal chemotherapy with early mitomycin administration and adding cisplatin to prolonged treatment with doxifluridine compared to mitomycin plus doxifluridine.
