Summary

This study is for subjects who have cancer of the colon, which has been surgically removed, but has spread to lymph nodes. This study is being done to evaluate the effects (good and bad) of different chemotherapy treatments. One of the common combinations of chemotherapy drugs used to treat this type of cancer includes 5-fluorouracil (also called 5-FU), leucovorin and oxaliplatin, and is also called "FOLFOX". The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved each of these drugs as treatment for colon cancer. FOLFOX is a standard treatment used to prevent colon cancer from coming back (recurrence).
In this study, researchers will evaluate the effects (good and bad) of an oral drug called celecoxib when given in combination with FOLFOX chemotherapy. Celecoxib is approved by the FDA to treat arthritis and some other painful conditions. The addition of celecoxib to FOLFOX chemotherapy is considered investigational. One of the purposes of this study is to determine if giving subjects celecoxib (by mouth) and chemotherapy decreases the risk of colon cancer recurrence.
This study will also look at whether receiving FOLFOX chemotherapy for 6 treatments (12 weeks) is as good as 12 treatments (24 weeks) in preventing recurrence of colon cancer. Currently, the standard of care is 12 treatments with FOLFOX. In this trial, researchers will explore whether 6 treatments are as effective as 12 treatments and whether side effects can be reduced with fewer treatments. It expected that subjects will be enrolled in this trial for up to 3 years.
