Commonly used 20 D. Propper and K. Hawkesford regimens include epirubicin, oxaliplatin and capecitabine (EOX) and docetaxel, cisplatin, and infusional 5-FU (DCF) combinations. These are relatively toxic regimens, particularly DCF [14], and since combination regimens probably only modestly improve survival compared to single-agent regimens, it is appropriate to use single-agent regimens in elderly patients or those with reduced performance status. Second-line chemotherapy can modestly (by around 8 weeks) prolong survival compared to the best supportive care, and both irinotecan and docetaxel have efficacy, probably with improved quality of life [15, 16].
