Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to HCM!

The tablet you are talking about (Xleoda) is basically Capecitabine.

Yes, it is often given in patients with Dukes c1 (colon cancer). It results have been good and is considered as an effective alternative to other anti-canacer drugs like Leukovorin.

Hope I've solved your query.
