Four companies..: Sorry to hear that you will need xeloda (capecitabine)..I assume you have colon cancer? True dpd is quite rare and so routine screening is not recommended, but if you need to, your doc can order it and four comapnies do this: entrogen, myriad, labcorp, and molecular diagnostics laboratories are the current ones..
Good luck to you..
