Background: Adjuvant chemotherapy is considered the standard of care after surgical resection in patients with stage IB–III gastric cancer in most Asian countries. The benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery over surgery alone in terms of overall and disease-free survival was confirmed in an individual-patient data meta-analysis1 of 3838 patients treated in 17 randomised controlled trials.
