Intervention Details:
  • Drug: capiri-sutent
    A dose escalating study in a 3 + 3 design will be performed. At MTD dose 14 additional patients will be treated. First, the optimal dose of sunitinib in a continuous schedule will be determined, thereafter, further dose escalation of capecitabine and irinotecan will be investigated.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: after every completed doselevel ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. determine the safety and toxicity profile using the CTCAE criteria. [ Time Frame: after every completed doselevel ]

  • Hepatic dysfunction (serum bilirubin ≥ 1.5x ULN, serum transaminases ≥ 2.5 x ULN)
  • Greater than +1 proteinuria on two consecutive dipsticks taken no less then 2 weeks apart unless urinary protein < 1,5 g in a 24 Hr period.
  • Pregnant or lactating women
  • History of clinical signs/symptoms of CNS metastases
  • Previous intolerance of fluoropyrimidine therapy, known dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency. Known hypersensitivity to irinotecan or sunitinib of their excipients.
  • No major surgery < 4 weeks prior to study entry.
  • No radiotherapy < 4 weeks prior to study entry except for palliative radiotherapy at focal sites.
  • Any evidence of concurrent severe or uncontrolled disease (i.e. uncontrolled hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction < 6 months, chronic active infection, poorly regulated diabetes mellitus)
  • Any previous significant cardiovascular event during previous fluoropyrimidine therapy (i.e.

myocardial ischemia or infarction, arterial thrombosis, pulmonary emboli)

  • Mean Qtc with Bazetts correction > 470 msec in screening ECG, or a history with familial long QT syndrome
  • Significant haemorrhage (>30 ml bleeding/episode in the last 3 months) or haemoptysis (>5 ml fresh blood in previous 4 weeks)
  • History of impairment of gastrointestinal function or -disease that may significantly impair the absorption of oral drugs (i.e. uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, malabsorption syndrome, bowel obstruction, or inability to swallow tablets)
  • Any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and follow-up schedule; those conditions should be discussed with the patient before registration in the trial
  • Concomitant use medication that may significantly affect hepatic cytochrome P450 drug metabolizing activity by way of enzyme induction or inhibition < 2 weeks if the first dose and throughout the study period (see Appendix 2)
  • Other concomitant anti-cancer therapy.
