Phase II/III clinical trial - Appareil Digestif
Currently, no adjuvant study with hepatic arterial infusion in the adjuvant setting is opened. Recently, the results of a phase II study (NCT00268463, NSABP-C-09) assessing the potential benefit of systemic oxaliplatin and capecitabine alternating with HAI of FUDR, after resection of CRLM have been reported.;The primary end point was 2-year survival. Fifty-five of 76 eligible patients were able to initiate protocol-directed therapy and completed median of six cycles (range, one to six). Three postoperative or treatment-related deaths were reported. Overall, 88% of evaluable patients were alive at 2 years. With a median followup of 4.8 years, a total of 30 patients have had disease recurrence, 11 involving the liver. Median disease-free survival was 32.7 months. In conclusion alternating HAI of FUDR and systemic capecitabine and oxaliplatin met the prespecified end point of higher than 85% survival at 2 years and were clinically tolerable.
