What Are Gastric Adenocarcinoma Clinical Trials?

Gastric adenocarcinoma refers to stomach cancer, which results from the uncontrolled growth of gland cells in the innermost lining of the stomach. Adenocarcinomas makeup up almost 95% of all gastric cancer and can exist in either the intestinal type or the diffuse type, where the latter is harder to treat and spreads faster.

Gastric Adenocarcinoma can cause various symptoms, including loss of appetite, fatigue, weight loss, nausea, blood in vomit, and stomach pain. If the cancer metastasizes, it becomes difficult to treat and might prove fatal.

Gastric Adenocarcinoma clinical trials are research studies that aim to improve current treatment methods and obtain information on disease etiology and patient response. When clinical trials show that a new treatment is better than the standard, it may replace the latter.

Why is Gastric Adenocarcinoma Being Studied Through Clinical Trials?

In the United States, about 26,000 new reports of stomach cancer are made yearly. 95% of these cancers are caused by gastric adenocarcinoma. Moreover, scientists are still unsure about the exact cause of cancer. However, many factors may contribute to the development.

While at an early stage, if cancer exists as a tumor, it can be treated effectively, with a five-year survival rate of 70%. However, if cancer spreads, it becomes difficult to treat, and the five-year survival rate falls to 32%.

Additionally, current treatment methods show many adverse side effects, and some are not applicable in late-stage diagnosis. Moreover, these treatment methods are costly and often put a strain on the already weakened body.

Gastric Adenocarcinoma clinical trials aim to find new and improved treatment methods to prevent the spread of cancer, allow early diagnosis, and gain information on its progression.

What Are The Types of Treatment Available For Gastric Adenocarcinoma?

Current treatment methods for Gastric Adenocarcinoma include:

  • Surgery: Surgical methods include removing and resecting the tumor from the tissue. The surgery may include a subtotal gastrectomy or total gastrectomy.
  • Endoscopic Mucosal Resection: An endoscope is used to remove precancerous growth from the stomach lining.
  • Chemotherapy: a combination of chemicals is administered orally or through an injection in the vein to target and kill cancer cells.
  • Radiation Therapy: using high energy X-ray radiation to inhibit the growth of or kill cancer cells.
  • Targeted Therapy: The use of monoclonal antibody drugs such as trastuzumab and ramucirumab for targeted cancer cell killing. Also, involve the use of kinase inhibitors such as regorafenib to prevent the growth of cancer cells.
  • Immunotherapy: Using methods to boost or restore the body’s immune system against cancer cells.

What Are Some Recent Breakthrough Clinical Trials for Gastric Adenocarcinoma?

Some of the recent breakthrough gastric adenocarcinoma clinical trials include:

2022: a clinical trial (NCT02335411) by Merch Sharp & Dohme to assess the safety of pembrolizumab, alone and in combination with cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil, in recurrent gastric adenocarcinoma patients. The number of participants experiencing adverse events was measured.

2021: a clinical trial (NCT05052801) by Amgen to study the efficacy of pertuzumab in combination with oxaliplatin, 5-fluorouracil, and leucovorin to treat gastric cancer and measure overall survival rate in patients with a mutation in the Fibroblast Growth Receptor 2b.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
