1. Patient must have a histologically proven adenocarcinoma of colon or rectum with
metastases or local recurrence.
2. Patients must have at least one measurable lesion according to the RECIST criteria.
Bone metastases, ascites and pleural effusion are not measurable.
3. Minimum indicator lesion size as follows:
Greater than or equal to 20 mm measured by conventional CT Greater than or equal to
10 mm measured by spiral techniques
4. Prior use of celecoxib for the treatment of nonmalignant disorders is allowed.
5. Patients must have a performance status of 0,1, or 2 by the Southwest Oncology Group
6. Patients must have a calculated creatinine clearance of greater than 50 ml/min.
7. Patients must have an absolute neutrophil count of greater than or equal to 1500/ml,
platelet count greater than or equal to 100,000/ml, and total serum bilirubin equal
or less than the institution's upper limit or normal range.
8. Patients must have recovered from any effects of surgery.
9. Evaluable disease must be present outside radiation field. At least 3 weeks must
have elapsed after discontinuation of radiation therapy.
10. Patients must provide a signed consent to participate in the study.

taking aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
3. Patients who have received prior chemotherapy for colorectal cancer (including
capecitabine or irinotecan) except for patients relapsing more than 6 months after

7. Patients who have allergy to any of the study drugs or sulfa drugs.
8. Patients known to have HIV-1 virus infection because of the undetermined effect of

interaction with anti-HIV medications.
9. Gilbert's disease.
10. Lack of physical integrity of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Inability to swallow
tablets or those who have malabsorption syndrome.
11. Other serious concurrent infection
12. Clinically significant cardiac disease not well controlled with medication (e.g.
