This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital|
|Start date||January 2009|
|End date||December 2011|
|Trial size||80 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01444755, HNEAH-01-08|
The aim of this study is to evaluate survival benefit of a neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen in patient with resectable locally advanced gastric cancer in comparison with surgery alone.

|Official title||Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Versus Surgery Alone in Locally Advanced Gastric Cancer: A Randomized Controlled Study|
|Principal investigator||Atilla Celik, M.D.|
|Description||Adenocarcinoma of the stomach ranks as the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer and as the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the world. Radical resection with free-margin gastrectomy and extended lymphadenectomy is the preferred surgical strategy in Japan and Asian centers. Unfortunately, only one-half of surgically treated patients with gastric cancer will achieve a complete resection without residual disease (R0) resection. Moreover, due to, the absence of routine screening programs for gastric cancer, the majority of the patients will be symptomatic at the time of diagnosis in our country. Additionally, recent treatment strategies were focused for downsizing or decreasing to loco-regional recurrence. In this reason, we hypothesize that preoperative chemotherapy may improve the R0 resection rate or disease free and/or overall survival rate.|
