Overview

Capekast is a formulation of a prescription medicine known as Capecitabine. It is prescribed for the treatment of patients suffering from breast cancer, gastric cancer, and colorectal cancer.

Pharmacodynamics 

Capecitabine is an antineoplastic fluoropyrimidine carbamate that is used to treat metastatic breast cancer and colon cancer. It's a systemic prodrug given orally that has minimal pharmacologic activity until it's transformed to fluorouracil by enzymes found in higher doses in various cancers. Fluorouracil then metabolized 5-fluoro-2′-deoxyuridine 5′-monophosphate (FdUMP) and 5-fluorouridine triphosphate in both normal and malignant cells (FUTP).
