An All-Oral Combination of Capecitabine and Cyclophosphamide in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC)
Phase II Study of an All-Oral Combination of Capecitabine (X) and Cyclophosphamide (C) in Patients With Anthracycline- and Taxane-Pretreated Metastatic Breast Cancer
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the time to progression. Secondary objectives are safety, OS and pharmacogenetic analysis. Sixty patients will be enrolled into this study.
Xeloda (capecitabine) is converted to 5-fluorouracil by thymidine phosphorylase, and cyclophosphamide is capable of upregulating the expression of thymidine phosphorylase suggesting a synergistic effect.
