Colorectal Cancer
Capecitabine is prescribed as a single agent for adjuvant treatment in patients with Dukes` C colon cancer who have undergone complete resection of the primary tumor when treatment with fluoropyrimidine therapy alone is preferred. Capecitabine was non-inferior to 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin (5-FU/LV) for disease-free survival (DFS). Although neither Capecitabine nor combination chemotherapy prolongs overall survival (OS), combination chemotherapy has been demonstrated to improve disease-free survival compared to 5-FU/LV. Physicians should consider these results when prescribing single-agent Capecitabine in the adjuvant treatment of Dukes` C colon cancer.

Capecitabine is prescribed as first-line treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma when treatment with fluoropyrimidine therapy alone is preferred. Combination chemotherapy has shown a survival benefit compared to 5-FU/LV alone. A survival benefit over 5-FU/LV has not been demonstrated with Capecitabine monotherapy. Use of Capecitabine instead of 5-FU/LV in combinations has not been adequately studied to assure safety or preservation of the survival advantage.

Breast Cancer
Capecitabine in combination with docetaxel is prescribed for the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer after failure of prior anthracycline-containing chemotherapy.

Capecitabine monotherapy is also prescribed for the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer resistant to both paclitaxel and an anthracycline-containing chemotherapy regimen or resistant to paclitaxel and for whom further anthracycline therapy is not prescribed, eg, patients who have received cumulative doses of 400 mg/m 2 of doxorubicin or doxorubicin equivalents. Resistance is defined as progressive disease while on treatment, with or without an initial response, or relapse within 6 months of completing treatment with an anthracycline-containing adjuvant regimen.

Dosage

Capecitabine recommended dosage of Capecitabine is 1250 mg/m 2 administered orally twice daily (morning and evening; equivalent to 2500 mg/m 2 total daily dose) for 2 weeks followed by a 1-week rest period given as 3-week cycles. Capecitabine tablets should be swallowed with water within 30 minutes after a meal. In combination with docetaxel, the recommended dose of Capecitabine is 1250 mg/m 2 twice daily for 2 weeks followed by a 1-week rest period, combined with docetaxel at 75 mg/m 2 as a 1-hour intravenous infusion every 3 weeks. Pre-medication, according to the docetaxel labeling, should be started prior to docetaxel administration for patients receiving the Capecitabine plus docetaxel combination.

Adjuvant treatment in patients with Dukes` C colon cancer is recommended for a total of 6 months, ie, Capecitabine 1250 mg/m 2 orally twice daily for 2 weeks followed by a 1-week rest period, given as 3-week cycles for a total of 8 cycles (24 weeks).

Contraindications

Capecitabine is contraindicated in patients:
- with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance below 30 mL/min [Cockroft and Gault]);
- with known dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency;
- who have a known hypersensitivity to 5-fluorouracil;
- with known hypersensitivity to Capecitabine or to any of its components;
