Trial Information

A Phase II Study of PN-401, 5-FU and Leucovorin in Unresectable or Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Stomach


OBJECTIVES:

- Assess the 6-month survival rate in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or
metastatic adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction treated with
triacetyluridine, fluorouracil, and leucovorin calcium.

- Evaluate the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of this regimen in these
patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive leucovorin calcium IV over 2 hours and fluorouracil IV over 30 minutes
beginning 1 hour into leucovorin calcium infusion on days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36. Patients
receive oral triacetyluridine every 8 hours on days 1-3, 8-10, 15-17, 22-24, 29-31, and
36-38 beginning 8 hours after completion of each fluorouracil infusion. Courses repeat every
8 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 6 months for up to 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 53 patients will be accrued for this study.
