Randomized Phase III Study of Folfiri+Avastin Versus Xeliri+Avastin as 1st Line Treatment of CRC
This phase III study will compare two combinations of irinotecan, Folfiri versus Xeliri, with the addition of Avastin as 1st line treatment of colorectal cancer.
There is no data of comparison for Folfiri and Xeliri regimens. The reported data demonstrated that the addition of Avastin in the combination of irinotecan/bolus 5-FU/LV has significant improvement of overall survival. Further analysis of these results showed that patients receiving irinotecan in combination with Avastin, as 1st line treatment and oxaliplatin with Avastin, as second line treatment, have median overall survival 25, 1 months, which is the longest survival that has been reported.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The active metabolite of FOLIC ACID. Leucovorin is used principally as its calcium salt as an antidote to folic acid antagonists which block the conversion of folic acid to folinic acid.
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.
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.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of CT-322 comparative to bevacizumab, both in combination with irinotecan, 5-FU and leucovorin in the second-line treatment of subjec...
Bevacizumab has recently been shown to improve survival when combined with chemotherapy in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer. Bevacizumab is usually given to...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing t...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclon...
This phase II trial will investigate the combination of adjuvant 5-fluorouracil, radiation, and bevacizumab in patients with stage II and III rectal cancer, followed by FOLFOX6 and bevaciz...
BACKGROUND: Bevacizumab, a humanized anti-vascular endothelial growth factor monoclonal antibody, has showed clinical benefits in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Periodontitis has been obs...
Objectives: Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody that directly inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor, a key regulator of angiogenesis. Bevacizumab significantly improves progression-free and/or...
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a complication that may be experienced by patients with solid tumors. The prognosis of solid tumors with DIC is much poorer than those without DIC. Alth...
Abstract Purpose. In breast cancer patients, Mailliez and others described that 5 of 70 patients (7%) developed a bevacizumab-induced nasal septal perforation. However, to date, no studies have report...
The efficacy and safety of bevacizumab with modified irinotecan, leucovorin bolus, and 5-fluorouracil intravenous infusion (mIFL) in the first-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) has...
