Age minimum>= 20age old
Age maximumNot applicable
Include criteria1. Histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the gastric or gastroesophageal junction. 2. Has HER2 overexpression (IHC3+, or IHC2+ and ISH positive [FISH or DISH]). (HER2 Low expression: IHC1+, or IHC2+ and ISH-negative [FISH or DISH] with HER2-ECD > 11.6 ng/mL in the exploratory cohort). 3.

Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine : >= 15 days 10. Has a prior radiotherapy or surgical AE recovered of <= Grade 1 or <= baseline on CTCAE v5.0. However, this shall not apply to events where the symptoms are stable even if they are grade 2 or higher. 11. Female of childbearing potential have a negative pregnancy test within 7 days before enrollment (allowed on the same day of the week). Male and Female of childbearing potential agree to contraception for a period (4 months for male and 7 months for Female) from informed consent to the last dose of study drug (see 4.3 "Pregnancy and contraception"). 12. Written informed consent of participation in the study has been obtained from the patient.
Exclude criteria1.Has a medical history/complication of myocardial infarction or congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association Classes II-IV) within 6 months before enrollment, corresponding to the value diagnosed as myocardial infarction as defined by the *manufacturer within 28 days before enrollment (allowed on the same day), unstable angina, or any serious arrhythmia requiring treatment. *: Manufacturer refers to a testing company used by a study implementation institution. **: Enrollment is allowed if a subject exceeds ULN, if the subject is examined and myocardial infarction can be excluded. 2.Active multiple cancers [Synchronous duplicate cancers and metachronous multiple cancers within 3 years prior to enrollment, but carcinoma in situ or other lesions corresponding to mucosal carcinoma that are considered curable with Local treatment will not be included in active multiple cancers.] 3.Has serious (hospitalized) complications (intestinal palsy, intestinal obstruction, pulmonary fibrosis, diabetes mellitus that is difficult to control, heart failure, myocardial infarction, unstable angina, renal failure, liver failure, psychiatric disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, etc.). 4.Has history of gastrointestinal perforation and/or gastrointestinal fistula within 6 months before enrollment. 5.Has any of the following infections: -HBs antigen positive -HBs antibody or HBc antibody and HBV-DNA positive -Active hepatitis C (eg, if HCV RNA is detected qualitatively) Patients who are HBsAg positive but who have achieved HBV DNA level < 1.3 log IU/mL (2.1 log copies/mL) after treatment with antiviral drugs such as NAs, are eligible for the study. 6.HIV infection has been documented. 7.Lung diseases are defined as: -Has a history of non-infectious interstitial lung disease or pneumonitis that required treatment, has interstitial lung disease or pneumonitis, or these lung diseases cannot be ruled out by radiographic examination before enrollment. -Severe pulmonary impairment (eg, pulmonary embolism within 3 months prior to enrollment, serious bronchial asthma, severe COPD, restrictive pulmonary disease, or pleural effusion).
