men in the capecitabine-containing arm experienced tumour growth in another part of their body compared to 72 women in the non-capecitabine arm. - The study participants need to be followed up for longer in order to assess the effect of capecitabine on survival. - This analysis is further evidence that capecitabine may have a role in early breast cancer treatment.
