Xeloda (capecitabine) is a chemotherapy medication used to treat several types of cancer, including breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and stomach cancer, among others. Some specific indications for Xeloda are:

  • As adjuvant treatment in patients with stage III (Dukes’ C) colon cancer who have undergone complete resection of the primary tumor when treatment with fluoropyrimidine therapy alone is preferred;
  • For the treatment of metastatic breast cancer resistant to both anthracycline and taxane therapy or when anthracycline therapy is not suitable;
  • As first-line treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma when treatment with fluoropyrimidine therapy alone is preferred;
  • For the treatment of advanced or metastatic gastric cancer or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma in combination with platinum-containing regimens as first-line therapy, when fluoropyrimidine therapy alone is either considered inappropriate or has previously been administered.
