Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Through 30 days following the last dose of study medication ]
    Percentage of subjects with adverse events

Estimated Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: March 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tesetaxel-capecitabine Drug: Tesetaxel plus capecitabine

Study medication, which will include tesetaxel capsules and capecitabine tablets, will be administered orally for two 21-day cycles. In each cycle, tesetaxel will be administered at a dose of 27 mg/m2 on Day 1, and capecitabine will be administered in Cohort 1 at a dose of 2000 mg/m2/day and in Cohort 2 at a dose of 1750 mg/m2/day (in 2 equally divided doses) on Day 1 through Day 14.

At the conclusion of Cycle 2, patients who, in the opinion of the investigator, appear to have benefitted from protocol therapy may receive up to 6 additional cycles under a separate protocol.
