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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

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.
