ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00777478
Recruitment Status : Unknown
Verified January 2012 by Radboud University. Recruitment status was: Recruiting
A dose escalating study in a 3 + 3 design will be performed. At MTD dose 14 additional patients will be treated. First, the optimal dose of sunitinib in a continuous schedule will be determined, thereafter, further dose escalation of capecitabine and irinotecan will be investigated.
