  Purpose

This 3 arm study will compare the prophylactic effect of topical corticosteroids, Bepantol or placebo on hand-foot syndrome in patients receiving Xeloda for treatment of metastatic breast cancer, metastatic colorectal cancer or adjuvant treatment of colorectal cancer. Patients who have been receiving oral Xeloda for at least 5 days will be randomized to receive prophylactic treatment with either placebo, topical corticosteroids or Bepantol. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or development of hand-foot syndrome, and the target sample size is 500+ individuals.
