The biochemical modulation of 5-FU with FA and HU were significantly effective in treating patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma. Overall, this regimen was well tolerated with only moderate toxicity. Further studies incorporating intravenous HU as well as a randomized Phase III study of 5-FU/FA/HU versus 5-FU/FA are recommended.
