A Study of Xeloda (Capecitabine) in Breast Cancer Patients With Central Nervous System (CNS) Progression

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Hoffmann-La Roche Identifier:
First received: January 15, 2010
Last updated: November 1, 2016
Last verified: November 2016
This single arm study will assess the efficacy of Xeloda in the treatment of brain metastases in breast cancer patients with central nervous system (CNS) progression after whole brain radiotherapy. Patients will receive xeloda 1000mg/m2 po bid on days 1-14 of each 3 week cycle. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, and the target sample size is <100 individuals.

Condition Intervention Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: capecitabine [Xeloda] Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Single Arm, Open-label Trial Assessing the Effect of Capecitabine (Xeloda® ) on Progression-free Survival Rate at Four Months in Breast Cancer Patients With CNS Progression After Whole Brain Radiotherapy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Central Nervous System (CNS) response [ Time Frame: From first administration of study treatment until documented CNS recurrence or progression ]
  • Duration of CNS response [ Time Frame: From time of first documented cranial complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) (whichever is recorded first) until the first date CNS recurrence or progression is documented ]
  • Cranial PFS [ Time Frame: From the first administration of study treatment to the time of documented cranial recurrence or progression\n ]
  • Progression-free survival\n [ Time Frame: From the first administration of study treatment to the time of documented recurrence or progression\n ]
  • Clinical benefit \n [ Time Frame: From first administration of study treatment to study end (12 Months) ]
  • Extra-cranial disease response rate\n [ Time Frame: From first administration of study treatment to the time of documented extra-cranial recurrence or progression ]
  • Overall Survival (OS)\n [ Time Frame: From first administration of study treatment to the time of death from any cause ]
