Metronomic chemotherapy, at a minimally toxic dose and with a frequent schedule, is a potentially novel approach to the control of advanced cancer disease via a different mechanism from maximum tolerable doses chemotherapy. Taking advantage of the potential effectiveness of metronomic therapy, tegafur/uracil (UFT) was incorporated into an oxaliplation/infusioanl fluouracil (5-FU)/leucovorin (LV) protocol in this study. The primary endpoints were response rate, time to progression (TTP) and… CONTINUE READING
