Research background

Localized oeso-gastric cancer (GC) are treated by perioperative chemotherapy and surgery. The use of taxane seems to improve response rate and outcome.

Research motivation

Only the efficacy of the german regimen FLOT was previously reports.

Research objectives

To determine the efficacy of the Frence TeFOX regimen.

Research methods

This retrospective study aims to test efficacy and safety of the perioperative TeFOX regimen given alone in patients with localized GC.

Research results

Thirty-three consecutive patients were included. Median follow-up of surviving patients was 32 mo. R0 resection was obtained in 30 (91) patients. Twelve patients (36) have a pathological complete response and 8 (24) patients a nearly complete pathological response.

Research conclusions

TeFOX regimen could be safely administrated in perioperative treatment of localized GC.

Research perspectives

TeFOX and the FLOT regimen have comparable efficacy and safety profiles and could be considered as an alternative regimen.
