RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. GTI-2040 may increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Giving GTI-2040 together with oxaliplatin and capecitabine may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of capecitabine when given together with GTI-2040 and oxaliplatin in treating patients with locally advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer or other solid tumors.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of capecitabine when administered with oxaliplatin and GTI-2040 in patients with locally advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer or other solid tumors.
- Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study of capecitabine.
Patients receive GTI-2040 IV continuously on days 1-14, oral capecitabine twice daily on days 2-15, and oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 2 of the first course. In all subsequent courses, capecitabine is administered on days 1-14, oxaliplatin is administered on day 1, and GTI-2040 is administered as in course 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression and unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of capecitabine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-20 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

The aim of this study is to compare the activity and safety of Oxaliplatin and S-1 (OS) and Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine (XELOX) in patients with advance or recurrent colorectal cancer.
Primary objective : To compare the combination of S-1 and oxaliplatin(SOX) to the combination of capecitabine and oxaliplatin(COX) therapy for advanced or metastatic colorectal carcinoma....
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of capecitabine (2000 mg/m2/day by mouth [po], day 1 pm-day 15 am every 3 weeks [q3w]), oxaliplatin (130 mg/m2 intravenou...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leucovorin, fluorouracil, capecitabine, and oxaliplatin, use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Co...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab/capecitabine/oxaliplatin combination in metastatic or recurrent Korean colorectal cancer.
There is no single standard chemotherapy regimen for elderly patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC). A phase III trial has confirmed that both capecitabine monotherapy and capecitabine plus oxali...
Although overall colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence rates in the United States are declining, rates among younger persons (age < 55 years) are increasing, particularly among US whites. We assessed how ...
Oxaliplatin, a chemotherapeutic agent for colorectal cancer, has been associated with pathological evidence of sinusoidal endothelial injury in the liver. However, esophagogastric varices are a poorly...
Phase 2 study of treatment selection based on tumor thymidylate synthase expression in previously untreated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer: A trial of the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group (E4203).
The authors hypothesized that patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who had tumors with low thymidylate synthase (TS-L) expression would have a higher response rate to combined 5-fluoroura...
Objective: We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of an mEOX (modified epirubicin, oxaliplatin plus capecitabine) regimen as second line therapy after failure of mDCF (modified docetaxel, cisplatin pl...
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
