OBJECTIVE: In this study, we compared the pharmacokinetic profiles of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), tegafur, 5-chloro-2,4-dihydroxypyridine (CDHP) and potassium oxonate (Oxo) after administration of S-1 at 35 or 40 mg/m(2) bid for 28 consecutive days, in Cycles 1 and 3, in patients with advanced gastric cancer. METHODS: Three patients were enrolled for each dosage. S-1 dosage was assigned based on body surface area (BSA), which is different from the Japanese dosing system. The median daily dose per BSA was 76 mg/m(2), ranging from 70 to 88 mg/m(2). RESULTS: Plasma levels of 5-FU, tegafur, CDHP and Oxo at 4 h post-dose reached steady-state on day 8. The estimated steady-state level was dependent on S-1 dosage. There were no intercyclic differences of pre-dose and 4 h post-dose levels between Cycles 1 and 3, implying no cumulative effect of S-1 was shown probably due to 2-week drug-resting period. Pharmacokinetic profiles on day 28 were similar to previous Japanese report. C(max) and AUC(0-48 h) values of each S-1 component increased depending on S-1 dosage. Pharmacokinetic parameters were not correlated with tumor response or toxicity. CONCLUSIONS: We suggest that these pharmacokinetic profiles of Asian population could provide a basis for schedule optimization and for additional studies on interaction with other antitumor drugs.
