    Drug: Capecitabine and Mitomycin C
    • Capecitabine 1000 mg/m2 twice-daily, administered orally on day 1-14, every three weeks
    • Mitomycin C 8 mg/m2 i.v. bolus, on day 1, every three weeks

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically/cytologically confirmed breast cancer
  • Metastatic breast cancer, having at least one target lesion according to the RECIST criteria. Bone metastases, leptomeningeal disease, ascites, pleural or pericardial effusions, inflammatory breast disease, lymphangitic spread or cystic lesions are not acceptable as target lesions. Target lesions must be ≥ 10 mm longest diameter measured in one dimension using spiral CT, or ≥ 20 mm longest diameter measured in one dimension using conventional techniques. In addition to the definitions pertaining to the target lesion(s) from the RECIST criteria above, the target lesion(s) must not have been previously irradiated (newly arising lesions in previously irradiated areas are acceptable).
  • Age > 18 years
  • Signed informed consent obtained prior to initiation of any study-specific procedures or treatment

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior cytotoxic chemotherapy or active/passive immunotherapy for metastatic breast disease
  • Prior usage of capecitabine or mitomycin as adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment
  • Life expectancy < 3 months
  • Not-ambulatory or with an ECOG performance status > 1
  • Insufficient hematological, renal and hepatic functions:
  • hemoglobin < 8.0 g/dL
  • absolute neutrophils count (ANC) < 1.5 x 109/L
  • platelet count < 100 x 109/L
  • serum creatinine > 1.25 x N*
  • total bilirubin > 2.0 x N*
  • ASAT and/or ALAT > 2.5 x N* (in case of liver metastases > 5 x N*)
  • alkaline phosphatase > 2.5 x N* (in case of liver metastases > 5 x N*, in case of bone metastases > 10 x N*) *N = upper limit of standard range
  • Severe renal impairment [creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min (calculated according to cockcroft and Gault)]
