Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients with any combination of therapies including radiation therapy alone, chemotherapy alone, TKI alone, or any combination are eligible.
  2. This includes patients with therapies including Xeloda (capecitabine), Camptosar (irinotecan) or 5-FU (fluorouracil) with cancer.
  3. Patients who have been diagnosed with a CID CTCAE toxicity of grade 3 or higher
  4. Patients must be at least 18 years of age.
  5. ECOG performance status 0-2.
  6. Patients must have diarrhea symptoms, judged secondary to the systemic therapy, combined systemic therapy, and/or radiation, and must be requiring loperamide or similar (Imodium®) for symptom management. For the purposes of this study, diarrhea will be defined as three or more loose or liquid stools per day or loose watery stool (greater volume of stool) that occur more frequently than usual and lasting for more than three days.

  4. Post-menopausal status is defined either by:

    1. age ≥55 years and one year or more of amenorrhea,
    2. age <55 years and one year or more of amenorrhea with an estradiol assay <20 pg/mL
