In brief: Some response

meds like Xeloda have some tempoary benefit suppressing DNA function as an oral 5FU (fluorouracil).
Long term responses are not seen requiring combination therapy to give an optimjum response. Eventually if cancer does show a good response, malignant stem cells will repopulate the site of the original metastasis.
