Abstract

Side effects due to administration of anti-cancer drugs often cause the treatment to be abandoned or a decrease in the amount of anti-cancer drugs. Recently, the anti-tumor effects of "low-dose CPT-11", which can be administered at the outpatient clinic, are reported. We performed "low-dose CPT-11 + CDDP" as a neoadjuvant chemotherapy to a patient with advanced gastric cancer. CPT-11 and CDDP combination chemotherapy caused very few side effects, so we could continue the treatment and achieve anti-tumor effects. Consequently, surgery could be performed, but disseminated metastasis was found so that the surgery ended as a non-curative operation. However, it was considered that this method of "low-dose CPT-11 + CDDP" was very effective as the neoadjuvant chemotherapy in a patient with advanced gastric cancer.
