Answer

The randomized XACT study demonstrated the noninferiority of capecitabine (Xeloda) compared with fluorouracil/leucovorin as adjuvant therapy for patients with stage III colon cancer. A large trial comparing capecitabine plus oxaliplatin (XELOX) versus FOLFOX has completed accrual, but survival data have not yet been reported.
