  • Capecitabine is a pre-prodrug of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). After oral uptake, capecitabine is first metabolized to 5'-deoxy-5-fluorocytidine (5'-DFCR), which happens mainly in the liver by carboxyl-esterase. The metabolite is converted to 5'-deoxy-5-fluoro-uridine (5'-DFUR) by cytidine deaminase in liver and tumor tissue. Then 5'-DFUR is converted to 5-FU intracellularly by thymidine phosphorylase, which is often expressed in tumor tissue. Miwa, M., et al. "Design of a novel oral fluoropyrimidine carbamate, capecitabine, which generates 5-fluorouracil selectively in tumours by enzymes concentrated in human liver and cancer tissue." Eur. J. Cancer 34: 1274-1281 (1998).
  • Capecitabine inhibits tumor growth by incorporation of 5-FU into RNA and DNA and inhibition of thymidylate synthase. Schellens, J.H. "Capecitabine." Oncologist 12: 152-155 (2007).
