Study of 0.1% Uracil Ointment (1UO) Ointment for the Prevention of Hand-Foot Syndrome
The purpose of this research study is to see if combining uracil ointment (1UO) with capecitabine (Xeloda) can prevent Hand-Foot Syndrome. The study will also see what effects 1UO and capecitabine may have in patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Capecitabine is used in the treatment of human breast cancer among other human cancers. Following absorption, capecitabine is converted enzymatically to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). The administration of capecitabine or 5-FU can cause a cutaneous toxicity known as hand-foot syndrome (HFS) or palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE). HFS is progressive with dose and duration of exposure to 5-FU or capecitabine. HFS is characterized by progressive redness and cracking of hands and feet. Currently, there are no approved therapies for HFS.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A mixture of liquid hydrocarbons obtained from petroleum. It is used as laxative, lubricant, ointment base, and emollient.
A colloidal system of semisolid hydrocarbons obtained from PETROLEUM. It is used as an ointment base, topical protectant, and lubricant.
A fibromatosis of the palmar fascia characterized by thickening and contracture of the fibrous bands on the palmar surfaces of the hand and fingers. It arises most commonly in men between the ages of 30 and 50.
Inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) causing HEEL pain. The plantar fascia (also called plantar aponeurosis) are bands of fibrous tissue extending from the calcaneal tuberosity to the TOES. The etiology of plantar fasciitis remains controversial but is likely to involve a biomechanical imbalance. Though often presenting along with HEEL SPUR, they do not appear to be causally related.
Non-ionic surfactant of the polyethylene glycol family. It is used as a solubilizer and emulsifying agent in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, often as an ointment base, and also as a research tool.
The principal objective of the study is to compare 5 usual strategies in the management of plantar warts which did not cure after 5 weeks of a salicylate ointment given just prior the tria...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Caelyx in women with advanced ovarian cancer, focusing on infusion reactions and palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia.
