Experimental: Capecitabine (Xeloda) + Lapatinib (Tykerb)
Capecitabine for 2 weeks straight (Days 1-14) followed by 1 week without capecitabine (Days 15-21).
Lapatinib will be taken daily continuously for 21 days (Days 1- 21).
The dose of capecitabine is 1000 mg/m2/dose twice each day, orally, 12 hours apart, for 14 consecutive days, every 21 days (total daily dose = 2000 mg/m2).
Other Name: XelodaDrug: Lapatinib
The daily dose of lapatinib is 1250 mg (5 tablets of 250 mg each) to be taken at approximately the same time each day, continuously. Lapatinib is taken even during the week that capecitabine is not taken.
Other Name: Tykerb
- Determine the Response Rate (as Determined by RECIST Criteria) of Capecitabine and Lapatinib as First-line Therapy in Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer That Overexpress HER2. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- -Determine the Clinical Benefit Rate (Complete Response, Partial Response, or Stable Disease for at Least 6 Months) of Capecitabine and Lapatinib. -Determine Time to Disease Progression After Treatment With Capecitabine and Lapatinib. -Evaluate Overall [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
