computed tomography (CT) in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded)
as >20 mm with conventional techniques or as >10 mm with spiral CT

7. The patient must have given written informed consent prior to inclusion into the
trial which must be consistent with the International Conference on Harmonization,
Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) and local legislation

9. Platelet count <100,000/µl

10. Hemoglobin <9 g/dl

11. Total bilirubin >1.5 mg/dl

12. Aspartate amino transferase (AST) and/or alanine amino transferase (ALT) >2.5 x ULN,
or aspartate amino transferase (AST) and/or alanine amino transferase (ALT) >5 x ULN
in case of known liver metastases

13. Serum creatinine >1.5 x ULN
