RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Hydroxychloroquine may help chemotherapy and bevacizumab work better and kill more tumor cells.
- To assess the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma treated with hydroxychloroquine in combination with capecitabine, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab and to compare this to a previously reported median PFS of 7.9 months.
- To measure the overall response rate.
- To measure the duration of response for responding patients.
- To measure the disease-control rate (complete response, partial response, or stable disease for at least 2 courses).
- To document the safety and feasibility of this regimen in these patients.
- To develop surrogate biomarkers for autophagy detection in patient tissue specimens and to characterize the effects of hydroxychloroquine on autophagy in patients in vivo.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes and oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1. Patients also receive oral capecitabine twice daily on days 1-15 and oral hydroxychloroquine twice daily on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Peripheral blood and tumor tissue samples may be collected for biomarker and other laboratory studies.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 1 year.

This 2-arm study will compare the pharmacokinetics and safety of Avastin (bevacizumab) at steady state under two different dosing regimens, in combination with XELOX (oxaliplatin+capecitab...
The purpose of this study is to determine if RAD001 (everolimus) helps improve the standard treatment of XELOX-A (bevacizumab, oxaliplatin, capecitabine) in metastatic colon cancer.
XELOX (Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin) is an effective and convenient regimen for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Chronomodulated therapy may reduce toxicity. Patients will be ra...
This is a study to assess the efficacy and safety of the addition of cetuximab to the combined regimen of capecitabine, oxaliplatin and bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated ad...
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.
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...
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...
Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy can cause hepatic sinusoidal injury (HSI), portal hypertension, and splenic sequestration of platelets. Evidence suggests that bevacizumab may protect against HSI.
Large scale randomized controlled trials have demonstrated that the use of bevacizumab in addition to chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) conveys significant surv...
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...
A chemotherapeutic agent that acts against erythrocytic forms of malarial parasites. Hydroxychloroquine appears to concentrate in food vacuoles of affected protozoa. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p970)
