Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the frequency of HFS; evaluation of eniluracil dose response; and assessment of any toxicity related to the topical product.

Estimated Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: January 2009
Detailed Description:

Primary Objectives

  1. To estimate the frequency of HFS following treatment with capecitabine as modulated by the unilateral local application of eniluracil containing ointment.
