A 57-year-old male patient with upper epigastric discomfort was introduced to our hospital from another clinic because of gastric cancer. Several examinations showed massive liver metastasis and paraaortic lymph node metastasis from Type-3 gastric cancer beneath the posterior wall of the pyloric antrum. First we tried infusion of CDDP (10 mg/day for days 1-5 and 8-12) and continuous infusion of 5-FU (500 mg/day for 14 days). Concurrently, we added infusion of CPT-11 (80 mg/day on days 1,8). After 3 courses of chemotherapy, the tumor had decreased remarkably in size. Moreover, liver metastasis and paraaortic lymph node metastasis had vanished. This regimen thus appears to be effective for advanced gastric carcinoma.
