time frame: up to 18 weeks
Correlation of circulating tumor cells with PFS and OS
time frame: up to 18 weeks
Correlation of circulating tumor cells with the clinical response
time frame: up to 18 weeks

Eligibility Criteria

All participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: 1. Histologically confirmed inoperable and/or metastatic adenocarcinoma of the oesophagogastric junction or stomach 2. Progression of a measurable lesion (RECIST) on previous palliative chemotherapy. Neoadjuvant/adjuvant treatment is not counted, unless progression occurs < 6 months after completion of the treatment.

Platelets ≥ 100,000/µl 8. AST/SGOT and/or ALT/SGPT ≤2.5 x ULN; 9. Total bilirubin ≤1.0 x ULN 10. Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 times the normal value, or creatinine clearance ≥ 60 ml/min 11. Written patient informed consent Exclusion Criteria: 1. A history of severe hypersensitivity to taxanes (≥ grade 3) or to medicinal products containing polysorbate 80 (≥ grade 3) 2. Active CAD, cardiomyopathy or NYHA stage III-IV heart failure 3. Malignant secondary disease dating back < 5 years (exceptions: in situ cervical carcinoma, appropriately treated basal cell carcinoma of the skin) 4. Severe secondary internal diseases, including uncontrolled diabetes mellitus or an acute infection 5. Concomitant medication or planned treatment with strong CYP450 3A4/5 inducers or inhibitors (list of medicinal products in the appendix) or the relevant medicinal products were not discontinued a minimum of one week before treatment 6. Peripheral polyneuropathy > NCI grade II 7. Severe hepatic impairment (AST/ALT > 2.5 x ULN, , bilirubin > 1 x ULN) 8. Chronic inflammatory bowel disease 9. Participation in another study 10. Pregnancy or lactation
