Trial Information

A Phase II Study Of Maintenance ZD1839 (IRESSA) In Patients With Locally Advanced Esophageal Cancer After Treatment Given With Curative Intent


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the 1-year overall survival rate in patients with previously treated locally
advanced adenocarcinoma of the esophagus or gastroesophageal junction treated with
gefitinib as maintenance therapy.

Secondary

- Determine disease-free survival and time to disease recurrence in patients treated with
this drug.

- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

- Determine the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral gefitinib once daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the
absence of disease recurrence or unacceptable toxicity.

Quality of life is assessed at baseline, 4 weeks, every 12 weeks during study treatment, and
then at the end of study treatment.

Patients are followed every 3 months for up to 5 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 26-72 patients will be accrued for this study within 9-24
months.
