Survival Benefit of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy with S-1 Plus Docetaxel for Locally Advanced Gastric Cancer: A Propensity Score-Matched Analysis.

Ann Surg Oncol; 26(6): 1805-1813, 2019 Jun.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30977014


Postoperative docetaxel plus S-1 (DS) chemotherapy is expected to be the standard therapeutic strategy for pStage III gastric cancer based on the results of the JACCRO GC-07 study. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is thought to have several advantages over adjuvant settings.


This study aimed to compare the efficacies of NAC DS and the surgery-first strategy for advanced gastric cancer patients with D2 gastrectomy.


This was a retrospective, single-institution observational study. Of 171 patients with locally advanced (cStage IIB or III) gastric cancer who underwent curative D2 gastrectomy and received NAC DS and/or S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy between 2011 and 2017, 76 (after propensity score matching for 132 patients who met the eligibility criteria) were enrolled in this study. The 3-year progression-free survival (PFS) rate was used to directly compare efficacies between NAC DS patients and surgery-first patients.


The 3-year PFS rates for the NAC DS group were significantly higher than those for the surgery-first group (80.0 vs. 58.7; p = 0.037), and the progression hazard ratio of the NAC DS group compared with the surgery-first group was 0.394 (95% confidence interval 0.159-0.978; p = 0.045).


The NAC DS group showed a high 3-year PFS compared with the surgery-first group, with standard S-1 postoperative chemotherapy or observation. NAC DS can be expected to be beneficial as the standard therapy for advanced gastric cancer and should be adopted for the test arm of a randomized controlled phase III trial.
