With the purpose to prevent the dissemination and consequent metastasis of cancer cells at the time of operation we gave 10 mg of Mitomycin C per day for four consecutive days prior to surgical operation of gastric cancer (total of 322 patients), and this so-called adjuvant chemotherapy proved to be effective on the cases with serosal involvement and infiltrating type of cancer, irrespective of histological types. It also gave five-year survival rate of 35 per cent. However, to lymph nodes already metastasized, the adjuvant chemotherapy proved to be not effective.
