    5 mg/Kg intravenous, 90-60-30 minutes, every 2 weeks.
    Other Name: Avastin
    Drug: Capecitabine
    600 mg/m2, orally, every 12 hours, continuous.

Detailed Description:

To look for a new chemotherapy management to get less acute and chronic toxicity and/or an easier administration treatment line.

This study tries to demonstrate an alternative chemotherapy scheme,continuous polychemotherapy regimen with less dose with the added effect of the monoclonal antibody Bevacizumab.
