Case of advanced gastric cancer successfully treated with chemotherapy of weekly paclitaxel


, : Case of advanced gastric cancer successfully treated with chemotherapy of weekly paclitaxel. Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer & ChemoTherapy 34(7): 1107-1109

We report a case of gastric cancer with ascites treated with chemotherapy. The patient is a 67-year-old male. Combination chemotherapy of S-1 and CDDP was given as the first-line treatment. However, the symptoms did not improve with that regimen, so we decided to change the chemotherapy to paclitaxel as second-line treatment. After 4 cycles, CT scan revealed decreasing ascites and endoscopy a reduction of the primary tumor. The patient has maintained a condition of decreasing ascites with improvement of QOL for 8 months. This regimen is considered effective treatment for unresectable gastric cancer.
