To develop a system to manage side effects and adjust chemotherapy dose such that a patient can receive their personal maximum tolerated dose.
- Metastatic Colorectal Cancer: capecitabine alone or capecitabine + oxaliplatin for 8 3-week cycles
- Metastatic Breast Cancer: capecitabine alone or capecitabine + docetaxel for 8 3-week cycles.
All patients will be given a mobile phone onto which they will enter any side-effects experienced prior to taking capecitabine in the morning and evening. Any grade 3 or 4 symptoms will trigger an alert to a pager held by the ward-staff for immediate attention. Thus, patients' severe side-effects will be monitored in real time and the trial will allow real-time dose reductions during cycles and dose-increases at clinics. Patient experience in the trial will also be evaluated during their participation in the trial.
Patients will already be receiving the drug prior to this study and will not be administered to patients as part of this study.

The objective of the program is to provide access to TAS-102 to patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who are refractory to or failing standard chemotherapy, are new to therapy with T...
The purpose of this study is to see if alternating chemotherapy with erlotinib increases tumor shrinkage in people with metastatic colorectal cancer. The investigator will also be studyin...
The purpose of this study is to determine that ABX-EGF will have clinically meaningful anti-tumor activity in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have developed progressive dise...
0116-ASG REMETY is a multicenter, open-label, non-randomized, dose-escalation Phase I study evaluating the safety and anti-tumor activity of TAS-102 administered in combination with Regora...
Regorafenib has been demonstrated as effective in refractory metastatic colorectal cancer. Combination use with chemotherapy has not been reported. We examined the efficacy and safety of adding chemot...
The early detection of colorectal cancer and determination of its metastatic potential are important factors to set up more efficacious therapeutic strategies. In the present study, we hypothesize tha...
ALK, ROS1, and NTRK fusions occur in 0.2% to 2.4% of colorectal cancers. Pioneer cases of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients bearing rearrangements who benefited from anti-ALK, ROS, and TrkA...
Associations of thrombocytosis, neutrophilia, and lymphopenia with prognosis have been confirmed in many cancers. This study aims at comparing various prognostic indices based on blood counts in metas...
Despite a variety of therapies for advanced metastatic colorectal cancer being available, the outcomes in this malignancy remain sub-optimal. Immunotherapy has been slow to impact the management of th...
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.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
