15) Prior history of pulmonary embolism or deep venous thrombosis.
16) Major surgical procedure, open biopsy, or significant traumatic injury within 28 days prior to Day 0, or anticipation of need for major surgical procedure during the course of the study, other than that defined by protocol; fine needle aspirations or core biopsies within 7 days prior to Day 0.
17) Lack of physical integrity of the upper gastrointestinal tract, malabsorption syndrome or inability to swallow.
18) Known, existing uncontrolled coagulopathy, INR >/= 1.5.
19) Patients on Coumadin must be changed to Lovenox at least 1 week prior to starting capecitabine. Low dose (1 mg) Coumadin is allowed. Intravenous and low-molecular weight heparin are permitted.
20) Patients taking Sorivudine or Brivudine must be off of these drugs for 4 weeks prior to starting capecitabine. Patients taking cimetidine must have this drug discontinued. Ranitidine or a drug from another anti-ulcer class can be substituted for cimetidine if necessary. If patient is currently receiving allopurinol, must discuss with PI to see of another agent may substitute for it.
