Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
S-1, Bevacizumab
Drug: S-1, Bevacizumab

S-1 is administered orally on days 1 to 28 of a 42-day cycle. Patients are assigned on the basis of body surface area (BSA) to receive one of the following oral doses twice daily: 40 mg (BSA <1.25 m2), 50 mg (BSA >1.25 to <1.50 m2), or 60 mg (BSA >1.50 m2).

Bevacizumab 5 mg/kg (body weight) is administered by intravenous infusion on days 1, and 15.

    7. Serum creatinine <1.2 mg/dL
    8. Creatinine clearance estimate by the Cockcroft-Gault method >50 mL/min
  9. Able to take capsules orally.
  10. No electrocardiographic abnormalities within 28 days before enrollment that would clinically preclude the execution of the study, as judged by the investigator.
