Clinical Trial Details

Study Title: CALGB 80702: A Phase III Trial of 6 Versus 12 Treatments of Adjuvant FOLFOX Plus Celecoxib or Placebo for Patients With Resected Stage III Colon Cancer
Study Type: Interventional
Study Condition: Colorectal Cancer
Investigator: Dr. Charles Kuzma
Phone: (910) 715-3500
Research Coordinator: Lori DeSpain
Phone: (910) 715-2200
Eligibility Criteria: Men or women, ages 18 and older, diagnosed with stage III colorectal cancer. For additional criteria, call the Research Coordinator or visit the study weblink.
Sponsor Organization: Cancer and Leukemia Group B
Study Rationale: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Celecoxib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether giving oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil is more effective with or without celecoxib in treating colon cancer.
Study Purpose: This randomized phase III trial is studying giving oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil together to compare how well they work when given together with or without celecoxib in treating patients with stage III colon cancer previously treated with surgery.
