  Purpose

This 2 arm study compared the efficacy and safety of label dose of capecitabine (Xeloda®) to that of a lower dose of Xeloda® plus docetaxel (Taxotere®) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer after failure of chemotherapy with an anthracycline. Patients were randomized to receive either 1250 mg/m^2 or 825 mg/m^2 orally twice a day (po bid) on days 1-14 of each 3 week cycle, in combination with Taxotere® 75 mg/m2 intravenous (iv) on day 1 of each 3 week cycle. The anticipated time on study treatment was until disease progression and the target sample size was 440 individuals.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Progression of Disease or Death [ Time Frame: Event driven (after 350 events). Median observation time was approximately 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression Free Survival was defined as the time from the date of randomization to the day of documented disease progression or death due to any cause.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Best Overall Response Being Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) [ Time Frame: Until Progressive Disease (PD) or end of primary study treatment (up to 16 cycles) plus 28 days. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria: CR is defined as the disappearance of all target lesions and PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions, taking as reference the nadir sum LD.

  • Time to Overall Response [ Time Frame: Until PD or end of primary study treatment (up to 16 cycles) plus 28 days. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For patients with Best Overall Response being Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR), time to response was measured as the time from randomization to the first time when the measurement criteria for CR or PR were met. The percentage of participants with overall response within the given time ranges in each of the categories: Weeks 1-6, 7-12, 13-18, 19-24, 25-30, 31-36, and 43-48 are reported.

  • Duration of Overall Response [ Time Frame: Until PD or death. Median duration of response was approximately 7 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of overall response was measured from the time that measurement criteria were first met for Complete Response or Partial Response until the first date that progressive disease or death was documented.

  • Time to Treatment Failure [ Time Frame: Until premature withdrawal or end of primary study treatment (up to 16 cycles). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The time to treatment failure was the time from the date of randomization to the first occurrence of any of the following events:

    • adverse events
    • insufficient therapeutic response (disease progression)
    • death
    • failure to return
    • refusing treatment/being unwilling to cooperate
    • withdrawing consent.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Throughout the study. Median observation time was approximately 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall Survival was measured as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death.

  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: First study drug intake until last study drug intake plus 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    An adverse event was considered any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease associated with the use of the study drug, whether or not considered related to the study drug. Preexisting conditions that worsened during the study were reported as adverse events.

    A serious adverse event is any experience that suggests a significant hazard, contraindication, side effect or precaution that: results in death, is Life-Threatening, required in-patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is medically significant.

    Additional information about Adverse Events can be found in the Adverse Event Section.
