From these results it can be concluded that TS-1 treatment is safe and effective as adjuvant postoperative chemotherapy for patients with P0/Cy1 status. Hyperthermic intraperitoneal perfusion chemotherapy (HIPEC) is also reported to be effective for the prevention of recurrence in patients with P0Cy1 status. After radical gastrectomy for patients with potentially curable serosa-involved gastric cancer, the peritoneal cavity was perfused with 6–8 l of heated saline at 42 degrees centigrade with 30 mg of MMC and 150 mg of CDDP for 60 min [48].

1b) Bando et al. reported that 5% (51/1001) of 1001 patients with potentially curable gastric cancer showed peritoneal free cancer cells, and the 5-year survival rate of the patients with P0 (no established macroscopic peritoneal seeding) Cy1 status was only 2% [29]. Wu et al. reported that peritoneal free cancer cells were found in 19% of 134 patients with potentially curable serosa-involved gastric cancer [30]. A positive cytology is significantly associated with wall invasion, histological type, infiltrating growth, and size of serosal inva- Y.
