In this analysis, we investigated the cost-effectiveness of panitumumab plus mFOLFOX6 (oxaliplatin, 5-fluorouracil, and leucovorin) compared with bevacizumab plus mFOLFOX6 in the first-line treatment of patients with wild-type RAS metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).
Conversion therapy can convert unresectable metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) into resectable. However, the optimal conversion regimen was not yet defined. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of the triplet chemotherapy (FOLFOXIRI) plus bevacizumab (Bev) with doublet chemotherapy (FOLFOX/FOLFIRI) plus Bev in conversion therapy.
This article presents a case of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection with bevacizumab (Avastin®) in a patient suffering from exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Within 1h after diagnosis the patient underwent vitrectomy with intravitreal injection of antibiotics combined with corticosteroids and 4 weeks after the endophthalmitis the visual acuity increased to 0.5. This cas...
Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy has become the most commonly used treatment for macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Although its superior efficacy as compared to other interventions has been proven, there is a lack of evidence for relative efficacy among anti-VEGF drugs. Areas covered: This work systematically reviewed and compared the efficacy of intrav...
A critical biological function of retina pigment epithelium (RPE) cells is phagocytosis of photoreceptor outer segment (POS) disc membranes. Mitochondrial damage and dysfunction are associated with RPE cells of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) retinas. In this study, we use a transmitochondrial cybrid model to compare the phagocytic properties of RPE cells that contain AMD mitochondria versu...
Leptomeningeal metastases (LMs) were devastating metastatic complications of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Management of LMs relied on conventional therapy but with poor survival, lacking effective treatment strategies. We present the case of a 52-year-old female non-smoker with advanced lung adenocarcinoma and initially positive EGFR-mutation, who failed to the treatment of standard first-l...
Phase III trials have shown improved survival in ovarian cancer patients when the anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy bevacizumab is added to first-line chemotherapy. However, further evidence is needed regarding bevacizumab when used with dose-dense paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy in advanced ovarian cancer patients. This single-arm trial enrolled 184 advanced-stage (III-IV...
To demonstrate how a patient with recurrent episodes of choroidal neovascularization (CNV), secondary to angioid streaks, can be managed successfully with a pro re nata regime of intravitreal bevacizumab injection over an eight-year period.
Purpose Bevacizumab improves progression-free survival but not overall survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer. E5103 tested the effect of bevacizumab in the adjuvant setting in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative disease. Patients and Methods Patients were assigned 1:2:2 to receive placebo with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) followed by weekly paclita...
To compare objectively measured changes in plus disease after bevacizumab and laser for Type 1 retinopathy of prematurity.
Bevacizumab is one of the most common monoclonal antibodies used to treat cancer due to its antiangiogenic role. However, the frequent parenteral administrations are not attractive for the patient adhesion to the therapy. Nanoencapsulation of bevacizumab might be a useful alternative to increase administration intervals, due to controlled release properties. To achieve a long-term bevacizumab stab...
Antiangiogenic treatment (AAT) used in combination with radiation therapy or chemotherapy is a promising strategy for the treatment of several cancer diseases. The vascularity and oxygenation of tumors may be changed significantly by AAT, and consequently, a noninvasive method for monitoring AAT-induced changes in these microenvironmental parameters is needed. The purpose of this study was to eval...
We report the case of a 50-year-old woman with a triple-negative Ki67 80% breast cancer with liver metastases, who obtained a radiological long-lasting complete response after treatment with eribulin. The patient initially experienced progressive disease after a standard anthracycline/taxane-based adjuvant chemotherapy, a first-line treatment for metastatic disease with paclitaxel-bevacizumab, and...
Bevacizumab (BV) has been approved for treating colorectal cancer since 2004. Although BV use may lead to adverse effects, few studies have reported incidences requiring surgical intervention. We aimed to identify the risk factors and adequate interventions for complications requiring surgical intervention after BV treatment.
Bevacizumab combined with platinum-taxane chemotherapy as first-line treatment for advanced ovarian cancer: a prospective observational study of safety and efficacy in Japanese patients (JGOG3022 trial).
This was the first large-scale prospective observational Japanese study evaluating the safety and efficacy of bevacizumab combined with paclitaxel and carboplatin for newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer.
Bevacizumab is a recombinant humanised monoclonal antibody to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) shown to improve survival in advanced solid cancers. We evaluated the role of adjuvant bevacizumab in melanoma patients at high risk of recurrence.
To evaluate the relationship between ocular blood flow, expressed as mean blur rate (MBR) by laser speckle flowgraphy, and intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) therapy in neonates with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).
Previous studies have shown that metastatic colorectal carcinoma (mCRC) patients treated with bevacizumab, experience variation in the plasma levels of angiogenesis growth factors and related cytokines, called angiogenic switch (AS). The aim of the present study was to analyze the relationship between AS and the clinical response during standard chemotherapy-bevacizumab treatment.
To evaluate the clinical effectiveness of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injection combined with cataract surgery in the treatment of patients with cataract and coexisting diabetic retinopathy (DR).
The aim of this study was to investigate neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) concentration developmental pharmacology in adult and pediatric subjects using minimal physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (mPBPK) modelling. Three types of pharmacokinetic (PK) data for three agents (endogenous/exogenous native IgG, bevacizumab and palivizumab) were used. The adult group contained six subjects with weights fro...
We tested the hypothesis that bevacizumab-induced hypertension may be a useful predictor for objective response rate, progression-free and overall survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer via a comprehensive meta-analysis. Search process, article selection and data extraction were independently performed by two investigators. Statistical analyses were conducted using the STATA/SE sof...
To describe a case of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) complicated with Type-2 choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in a patient with angioid streaks secondary to pseudoxanthoma elasticum before and after treatment with bevacizumab.
Angiogenesis inhibition with bevacizumab, a monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A), is an anticancer treatment associated with hypertension and renal glomerular toxicity referred to as a preeclampsia-like syndrome. In preeclampsia, podocyturia predates proteinuria and clinical features of preeclampsia, and is regarded as a biomarker of ongoing glomerular injury. ...
