Answer

For surgically unresectable locoregional disease, NCCN recommendations are as follows:

  • Chemoradiation or
  • Systemic therapy or
  • Palliative management

For metastatic gastric cancer, the NCCN recommends palliative chemotherapy or entry into a clinical trial. [4]

For description of chemotherapy and chemoradiotherapy regimens, see Gastric Cancer Treatment Protocols.
