|Brief Title ICMJE||Fluorouracil-Uracil and Leucovorin in Treating Elderly Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Phase II Study of ORZEL (UFT + Leucovorin) in Elderly (at Least 75 Years Old) Patients With Colorectal Cancer|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of fluorouracil-uracil and leucovorin in treating elderly patients who have metastatic colorectal cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate of elderly patients with metastatic colorectal cancer treated with fluorouracil-uracil and leucovorin calcium (Orzel). II. Evaluate the toxicity profile of this regimen in this patient population. III. Compare response rates obtained in this study with those observed in recent phase III studies in younger patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral fluorouracil-uracil and oral leucovorin calcium (Orzel) every 8 hours for 28 days. Courses repeat every 35 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-55 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
