Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
lobaplatin , 5-fu ,leucovorin LBP ,5-FU,LV
Participants received 2-hour lobaplatin (30 mg/m2 on day 1) and a 2-hour infusion of leucovorin (LV; 200 mg/m2 on days 1-5) followed by a 4-hour infusion of 5-FU (650 mg/m2 on days 1-5). Treatment was repeated every 21 days.

Additional Information

Official title Phase 3 Study of Lobaplatin,5-Fluorouracil and Leucovorin for the Treatment of Recurrent or Metastatic Esophageal Carcinoma
Description patients with metastatic or recurrent esophageal cancer have a particularly poor prognosis .The overall 5-year survival rate for patients with newly diagnosed esophageal cancer is under 10%. Metastatic esophageal carcinoma is an incurable disease and due to the lack of effective therapies to manage this disease,the median survival is only 6 to 8 months Chemotherapy which is one of the most effective treatment so far is used as part of combined modality therapy for locally advanced diseases or as a palliative treatment for metastatic diseases.Lobaplatin is the third generation of platinum.Phase Ⅱclinical trials indicate that lobaplatin is effective for esophageal cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer and small cell lung cancer.
