Phase II trial of etoposide (V), adriamycin (A), and cisplatinum (P) in patients with metastatic gastric cancer

, : Phase II trial of etoposide (V), adriamycin (A), and cisplatinum (P) in patients with metastatic gastric cancer. American Journal of Clinical Oncology 14(4): 357-358

The efficacy and toxicity of a combination of etoposide (100 mg/m2 i.v. on days 1 to 3), Adriamycin (20 mg/m2 i.v. on days 1 and 8) and cisplatinum (40 mg/m2 i.v. on days 2 and 8) repeated every 4 weeks as an outpatient regimen were assessed in 29 consecutive patients with metastatic gastric cancer with measurable disease. Five of these patients were refractory to 5-Fluorouracil, Adriamycin, and Mitomycin C. Three of these previously treated patients responded to the etoposide. Adriamycin, cisplatinum (VAP) therapy. An overall objective response rate of 72.5% was achieved, including 14% that were complete responses. The median duration of response was 6.0 months; median overall survival was 7.2 months, overall one-year survival was 34.4%. Hematologic toxicity was intense, particularly among patients with lower performance status. Three patients died as a consequence of nadir sepsis episodes.
