An Observational Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of FOLFIRI / FOLFOX Plus Cetuximab as First-line Therapy in Patients With KRAS Wild-type Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
This is an open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentric, Phase IV study evaluating FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX plus cetuximab in the first-line therapy of subjects with KRAS wild-type metastatic CRC.
Cetuximab, a chimeric immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody, has been found to potentiate the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in experimental systems. The findings from clinical trials suggest a favorable risk-benefit ratio of the combination of irinotecan or oxaliplatin, infusional 5-FU/FA and biweekly cetuximab, and support the current study to demonstrate the therapeutic value of the biweekly cetuximab regimen as a combination partner for those regimens in subjects with KRAS wild-type mCRC in the first-line setting. The purpose of this study is to generate post marketing surveillance (PMS) data for cetuximab in first-line mCRC, which is mandated by the Licensing Authorities.
This is an open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentric Phase IV study evaluating FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX plus cetuximab in the first-line therapy of subjects with KRAS wild-type metastatic CRC. The study plans to enroll 100 subjects with KRAS wild type CRC at 20 centres across India. Tumour status, physical and laboratory examinations will be performed during the baseline visit. Subjects will be administered FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX and cetuximab according to the clinical condition in the following treatment visits. Regular safety assessments and all adverse events (AEs) will be documented throughout and until the end-of-study visit. The outcome of AEs ongoing at the final tumour assessment visit will be followed up at the end-of-study visit (If possible, 6 weeks after the last administration of study medication but before second-line anticancer treatment, and not earlier than 30 days after the end of study treatment). Skin toxicity present at the end-of-study visit will be followed up until outcome is known.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Colorectal Neoplasms, Hereditary Nonpolyposis
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Lynch Syndrome Ii
Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.
A form of LYNCH SYNDROME II associated with cutaneous SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS. Muir-Torre syndrome is also associated with other visceral malignant diseases include colorectal, endometrial, urological, and upper gastrointestinal neoplasms.
Aberrant Crypt Foci
Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn about the safety of cetuximab in patients with stage IV colorectal cancer, and who may benefit from cetuximab.
In this study, the investigational drug, temsirolimus, will be combined with cetuximab, a biologic agent used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Cetuximab in combination with temsirol...
The purpose of this study is to determine the objective response rate of patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer treated with the combination of cetuximab, capecita...
This Phase II study is open to patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have tried but failed chemotherapy regimens containing oxaliplatin and irinotecan. Patients must not have rece...
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as cetuximab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. PURPOSE: Phase II...
Background/Aims: Cetuximab is a chimeric antibody registered for the therapy of advanced colorectal carcinoma. Among the side-effects of cetuximab hypomagnesaemia has been described, but the informati...
BACKGROUND: Smoking is widely accepted as the most important risk factor for cancer in the modern world. Several constituents of cigarette smoke are known to interact with drug-metabolizing enzymes, p...
Background/Aims: Many studies have suggested that hyperplastic polyps (HPs) are associated with adenomas and even malignancy. We investigated whether or not HPs are associated with the presence of syn...
The aim of this study is to prospectively evaluate the efficacy of combination chemotherapy with every second week cetuximab and irinotecan in patients with pretreated metastatic colorectal cancer har...
Cetuximab was approved using a weekly schedule, alone or in combination with chemotherapy (CT). However, many CT regimens in metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) are delivered every 2 weeks (q2wks). Pr...
