Intraperitoneal and Intravenous Paclitaxel Chemotherapy With Oral Capecitabine for Gastric Adenocarcinoma With Peritoneal Carcinomatosis

Background An estimated 28,000 cases of gastric adenocarcinoma are diagnosed annually in the U.S. Peritoneal metastasis is a common finding at diagnosis, making curative surgical resection possible in an estimated 25% of patients. Systemic chemotherapy is the recommended treatment for patients with metastatic gastric cancer to the peritoneal cavity, however …


Study of Chemotherapy With Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Followed by Maintenance With Olaparib (MK-7339) for the First-Line Treatment of Women With BRCA Non-mutated Advanced Epithelial Ovarian Cancer (EOC) (MK-7339-001/KEYLYNK-001/ENGOT-ov43)

Following a lead-in period during which all participants receive a single 3-week cycle of carboplatin/paclitaxel, participants will be randomly assigned in to one of three treatment arms Pembrolizumab+Olaparib, Pembrolizumab+Placebo for Olaparib, or Placebo for Pembrolizumab+Placebo for Olaparib. At Investigator's discretion and prior to participant randomization, one of the following carboplatin/paclitaxel …


Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC) With Oxaliplatin In Patients With Peritoneal Carcinomatosis

Gastric cancer is the 5th most common cancer (1 million incidences per year) and the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide (740,000 deaths per year). Unresectable gastric cancer is associated with a poor 5-year survival rate (< 30%) because of its late presentation with approximately 50% of the patients …
