Study of Capecitabine in Combination With SIR-Spheres in Patients With Advanced Cancer
This trial is testing the safety of combining the oral chemotherapy drug capecitabine with radio-labeled microspheres injected directly into the liver.
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Study of Capecitabine in Combination With SIR-Spheres in Patients With Advanced Cancer|
- To determine the safety, toxicity, and recommended phase II dose (RPTD) of capecitabine when administered concurrently with SIR-Spheres in patients with advanced cancer. [ Time Frame: ongoing ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Efficacy [ Time Frame: response rate ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2006|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (SIRT and capecitabine)
Patients receive capecitabine PO twice daily on days 1-14. Treatment repeats every 21 days for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients undergo SIRT on day 2 and may undergo a second course of SIRT on day 58.
