This trial is active, not recruiting.

Conditions colorectal neoplasms, liver metastases
Treatments capecitabine, oxaliplatin
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Arbeitsgruppe Lebermetastasen und Tumoren
Start date November 2004
Trial size 384 participants
Trial identifier NCT00156975, ADHOC


Primary endpoint of the study is to prove the superiority of an adjuvant therapy with oxaliplatin/ capecitabine until the first occurrence of appearance of a tumour. Occurrences in the meaning of this study are the appearance of a relapse of the tumour, of metastases, of a second tumour or death of any reason.

Official title Adjuvant Chemotherapy With Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine Versus Follow-up After Resection of Colorectal Liver Metastases- Randomized Phase III Study
Principal investigator Wolf O. Bechstein, Prof. Dr.
Description Prospective, randomized, multi-centre, open phase III study with two parallel groups of patients according to the eligibility criteria. The times in both hierarchical classified endpoints will be measured as times from randomization. Patients with macroscopic complete resection of colorectal liver metastases will be randomized in: Arm A: post-operative adjuvant therapy with Capecitabine/ Oxaliplatin over 6 months and follow-up or Arm B: follow-up Randomization: stratification after Scores of Fong et al: - number of metastases (1 vs. >=1) - maximal diameter of the metastasis (<= 5cm vs. > 5cm) - disease free interval (>= 12 months vs. > 12 months) - CEA (<= 200ng/l vs. >200 ng/l) in the strata 0-1, 2 and >= 3,
