Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/Treatment
Experimental: POFI

This study will include a sequential evaluation of 3 subjects per cohort. Irinotecan 135 → 150 → 165 mg/m2 and paclitaxel 45 → 67.5 mg/m2 on day 1. The rest of regimen is that oxaliplatin (85 mg/m2) and Lev-leucovolin (200 mg/m2).Subsequently, a 46-hour infusion of fluorouracil (2400 mg/m2) was administered using an ambulatory pump, repeating the cycle every 14 days. A dose limiting toxicity (DLT) event is defined as any of the following events in the first 4-week period: CTCAE Grade 4 event (except for neutropenia lasting for ≤ 5 days); Grade 3 non-hematologic toxicity (except for nausea and vomiting that could be improved with optimal supportive care, escalation of alkaline phosphatase) If a DLT is experienced in any cohort, the cohort will be expanded to 6 subjects. If 2 DLTs are experienced in any cohort, the dose escalation ceased. The MTD was defined as the dose having at most two out of six patients experience DLT.

Drug: Oxaliplatin
Oxaliplatin will be administered on day 1 of each cycle at 85mg/m2 once every 14 days.

Drug: Levo-Leucovorin
Levo-Leucovorin will be administered on day 1 of each cycle at 200 mg/m2 once every 14 days.

Drug: 5-fluorouracil
5-fluorouracil will be administered at 2400 mg/m2 over 46-hour every 14 days.

Drug: Paclitaxel
Paclitaxel will be administered on day 1 of each cycle at 45mg/m2 at dose level 1; 67.5 mg/m2 at dose level 2 once every 14 days.

Drug: Irinotecan
Irinotecan will be administered on day 1 of each cycle at 135 mg/m2 at dose level 1; 150 mg/m2 at dose level 2;165 mg/m2 at dose level 3 once every 14 days.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. The maximum dose tolerated [1 month]

    To determine the maximum tolerated dose of POFI with different doses of irinotecan and paclitaxel in the first month.

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Overall Response Rate [2 years]

    Clinical response of treatment according to RESIST v1.1 criteria (ORR, objective response rate).

  2. Progression-free survival [2 years]

    The length of time from enrollment until the time of progression of disease (PFS, progression-free survival).

  3. Overall survival [2 years]

    The length of time from enrollment until the time of death (OS, overall survival).
