Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: S-1/LV
S-1 combined with Leucovorin
Drug: S-1, Leucovorin

S-1 :

The initial dosage of S-1 is determined by the body surface area:

Surface area: 1.25-1.5 m2 : 50mg twice per day;upper than 1.5 m2 : 60mg twice per day


25mg twice per day po.

The treatment is given for one week,and no chemotherapy is given for the following one week.

Other Name: chemotherapy
Active Comparator: sLV5FU2
5-FU/LV infusion
Drug: leucovorin, 5-fluorouracil

leucovorin: 400mg/m2 intravenous infusion d1;

5-fluorouracil: 400mg/m2 intravenous push,d1; 2400mg/m2 continuous intravenous infusion for 46 hours

repeat every 2 weeks

Other Name: chemotherapy

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized phase Ⅱ study, in which S-1 is used in combination with leucovorin in elderly patients with advanced colorectal cancer as first-line treatment,comparing with sLV5FU2 therapy. The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of S-1/LV in elderly patients in the first-line setting. The other secondary endpoints are progression free survival,overall survival, and quality of life are also evaluated.
