RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of paclitaxel and capecitabine in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Drug: capecitabine Drug: paclitaxel||Phase 2|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety, response rate, and efficacy of combination therapy with paclitaxel and capecitabine as first or second line therapy in women with metastatic breast cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1 and capecitabine orally twice daily on days 1-14. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed for survival status every 3 months upon completion of treatment.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study.
