In MRI of patients with recurrent glioblastoma, bevacizumab-induced normalization of tumor vascularity can be difficult to differentiate from antitumor effects. The aim of this study was to assess the utility of F-fluoroethyl-L-tyrosine (FET) PET in the evaluation of recurrent glioblastoma treated with bevacizumab.
To determine whether sterile preloading of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents reduces the risk of postintravitreal injection endophthalmitis.
To describe an improved understanding of the regression patterns following off-label intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) treatment for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).
In advanced epithelial ovarian cancer patients, the standard of care is primary debulking surgery, followed by first-line chemotherapy often with bevacizumab addiction. In this context, some experiences have shown that a comprehensive treatment approach to surgery combined with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) could improve the prognosis.
The advent of monoclonal antibody biosimilar products has stimulated the development of analytical methods that can better characterize an important quality attribute, namely the higher order structure (HOS). Here, we propose a simple approach based on heteronuclear 2D NMR techniques at natural abundance for generating spectral fingerprints of the HOS at high resolution. We show that the proposed ...
Increased copy number alterations (CNAs) indicative of chromosomal instability (CIN) have been associated with poor cancer outcome. Here, we study CNAs as potential biomarkers of bevacizumab (BVZ) response in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). We cluster 409 mCRCs in three subclusters characterized by different degrees of CIN. Tumors belonging to intermediate-to-high instability clusters have im...
In the version of this article originally published, there was an error in Fig. 2n. The top line of the HR comparison chart originally was Atezo + bev vs sun. It should have been Atezo + bev vs atezo. The error has been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of this article.
To evaluate intravitreal bevacizumab every 2 weeks (biweekly) in refractory neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD).
Analytic, pharmacokinetic (PK), and clinical similarity between the biosimilar ABP 215 and bevacizumab has previously been demonstrated in global studies. Here we present a phase 1 study in healthy adult Japanese men.
Forkhead box F1 (FOXF1) has been recently implicated in the progression and metastasis of lung cancer and breast cancer. However, the biological functions and underlying mechanisms by which FOXF1 regulates the progression of colorectal cancer (CRC) are largely unknown. As shown in our previous study, FOXF1 is upregulated in 182 CRC tissues, and elevated FOXF1 expression is significantly associated...
Nonislet cell tumor hypoglycemia is rare. We highlight the diagnosis and treatment of recurrent severe hypoglycemia in a 49-year-old woman with malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (Doege-Potter syndrome). The clinical, laboratory and radiologic findings of the case are presented and a brief literature review is provided. Of note, imaging studies showed a large mass in the right hemithor...
To determine aqueous cytokines association with response to intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injection in diabetic macular edema (DME).
Most HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer patients continue to relapse. Incomplete access to all target HER2-positive cells in metastases and tumor tissues is a potential mechanism of resistance to trastuzumab. The location of locally bound trastuzumab was evaluated in HER2-positive tissues in vivo and as in vivo xenografts or metastases models in mice. Microenvironmental elements of tumors were...
Preclinical studies suggested that the addition of bevacizumab could overcome acquired resistance (AR) to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of a combination of afatinib and bevacizumab after AR.
To report a cluster of high incidence of noninfectious inflammatory reaction shortly after bevacizumab injection.
Platinum-based chemotherapy plus bevacizumab is the new standard of care in stage IVB cervical cancer (CC) patients. In this new scenario, radical surgery could be offered in selected cases with an optimal clinical response. Potential surgical complications related to previous bevacizumab treatment have never been described before in this type of setting.
The carboplatin/paclitaxel doublet remains the chemotherapy backbone for the initial treatment of ovarian cancer. This two-drug regimen, with carboplatin dosed using the Calvert formula, yielded convincing noninferior outcomes when compared with the prior, more toxic, regimen of cisplatin/paclitaxel. Carboplatin's dose-limiting toxicity is thrombocytopenia; however, when this drug is properly dose...
Impact of the Localization of the Primary Tumor and RAS/BRAF Mutational Status on Maintenance Strategies After First-line Oxaliplatin, Fluoropyrimidine, and Bevacizumab in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer: Results From the AIO 0207 Trial.
Numerous trials have examined the prognostic and predictive value of localization of the primary tumor (LPT) in metastastic colorectal cancer, there is limited information about the predictive value of LPT on different maintenance strategies.
Neovascularization in retina and choroid involves interplay of many cytokines and growth factors. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) being a pro-angiogenic molecule has been found to be high in aqueous and vitreous humour of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). VEGF is also found in the fibroblast and retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) of choroidal neovascular (CNV) m...
We determined if intermittent first-line treatment with paclitaxel plus bevacizumab was not inferior to continuous treatment in patients with HER2-negative, advanced breast cancer.
Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) is a rare Grade II and III glioma. Surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment, however, adjuvant therapy is sometimes necessary. Given the rarity of PXA, chemotherapeutic efficacy data is limited. The importance of the BRAF V600E mutation in the context of MAP kinase pathway inhibition is unknown. The purpose of this study was to perform an in vivo screen o...
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is characterized by aberrant angiogenic signaling and an immunogenic tumor microenvironment. Systemic therapies targeting vascular endothelial growth factor and the immune checkpoints programmed cell death protein 1/programmed cell death protein 1 ligand and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 have advanced to the forefront of the treatment repertoire against adv...
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and lethal intracranial malignancy, with few advances in treatment over the last several decades. Much excitement surrounded the initial approval for bevacizumab for recurrent GBM, given the marked radiographic responses and improvement in progression-free survival observed in early studies. However, phase III studies have failed to demonstrate an overall surv...
