Title A Phase III Study of Consolidative Radiotherapy in Patients with Oligometastatic HER2 Negative Esophageal and Gastric Adenocarcinoma (EGA)

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment, which consists of chemotherapy alone, to chemotherapy plus the addition of radiation. The addition of radiation therapy to the usual treatment could stabilize your cancer. But, it could also cause side effects, which are described in the risks section below
This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the study approach increases the life of patients by 5 months or more compared to the usual approach

You will receive chemotherapy treatment for about four months,your provider will decide to start you on one of two chemotherapy treatments for four months. The two chemotherapy treatment options are FOLFOX(oxaliplatin, leucovorin and 5-fluoropyrimidine (5-FU), or CAPOX(oxaliplatin infusion plus a capecitabine pill), then randomized to Step 2:
Either radiation therapy and continue your chemotherapy treatment, or you will continue to receive chemotherapy treatment alone for up to 2 years
