  Purpose

Although the overall incidence of gastric cancer has steadily declined in many Western countries during the last few decades, it is still one of the most common tumors in China. It is now well recognised that combination chemotherapy regimens improve patient outcomes, but there is no accepted global standard regimen for advanced gastric cancer.

The ToGA study was the first randomized, prospective, multicenter, phase III trial to show the efficacy and safety of Trastuzumab in HER2- positive GC. Trastuzumab reduced the risk of death by 26% (HR 0.74; 95% CI 0∙60, 0∙91; p=0∙0046) when combined with a reference chemotherapy (Capecitabine plus Cisplatin) and prolonged the median survival by nearly 3 months (from 11.1 to 13.8 months) in patients with HER2-positive(FISH+ or IHC3+) advanced GC.

Oxaliplatin has been shown to be as effective as cisplatin, and exhibits a favorable toxicity profile with a substantially lower rate of nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity, and myelosuppression.

In the current study, the efficacy and safety of Trastuzumab in combination with Oxaliplatin/capecitabine chemotherapy will be evaluated in Chinese patients with HER2 positive advanced or recurrent gastric cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response rate [ Time Frame: 6 -8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CT/MRI will be performed every 2 cycles of treatment for efficacy evaluation


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • progression free survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    the follow-up visit of PFS will be performed every 6 weeks

  • overall survival of participants [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    OS means that from the first dose of treatment drug to death or lost, the follow-up visit will be performed every 3 months till death or lost

  • adverse events [ Time Frame: during the treatment in the hosptital,an expected average of 3 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 3 weeks
