Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, fluorouracil, and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy alone is more effective then chemotherapy plus radiation therapy in treating rectal cancer. This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well chemotherapy alone compared to chemotherapy plus radiation therapy works in treating patients with rectal cancer undergoing surgery
This randomized phase II trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride works in treating patients with progressive carcinoid tumors. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
