Neoadjuvant therapy of high-risk gastric cancer: A phase II trial of preoperative FAMTX and postoperative intraperitoneal fluorouracil-cisplatin plus intravenous fluorouracil
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Chemotherapy with the FAMTX regimen is tolerable in patients with locally advanced gastric cancer, without an increase in operative morbidity or mortality. IP therapy can be successfully delivered to most resected patients. The intraabdominal failure pattern appears to be decreased compared with expected. This approach is an appropriate investigational arm to pursue in future studies.
