PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with metastatic gastric, gastro-oesophageal junction, or distal oesophageal adenocarcinoma were randomized 1:1:1 to CX (cisplatin 80 mg/m(2) IV Q3W; capecitabine 1000 mg/m(2) P.O. BID for 14 days Q3W) plus intravenous AMG 386 10 mg/kg QW (Arm A) or 3 mg/kg QW (Arm B), or placebo QW (Arm C). The primary end point was estimated progression-free survival (PFS). RESULTS: A total of 171 patients were enrolled. Me..
