Colorectal cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed malignancies worldwide. One of the most important developments in the management of metastatic colorectal cancer is targeted therapy. Bevacizumab, a monoclonal antibody inhibiting VEGF induced angiogenesis, has been accepted as safe and efficient in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer for more than a decade. Addition of bevacizumab to fluorouracil-based chemotherapy is also associated with severe adverse events. We present a case of bevacizumab-induced bowel ischaemia associated with gastrointestinal haemorrhage.

Advances in cancer chemotherapy have increased the opportunities of treating patients with cancer with renal dysfunction. Here we report the case of a 64-year-old woman with recurrent colorectal cance...
The phase III TRIBE and TRIBE2 studies randomized metastatic colorectal cancer patients to first-line FOLFOXIRI/bevacizumab or a doublet (FOLFIRI or FOLFOX)/bevacizumab. The studies demonstrated a sig...
Epidemiologic and preclinical data suggest isoflavones have anticancer activity in colorectal malignancy prevention and treatment. This is the first clinical trial assessing safety and tolerability of...
Chemotherapy is difficult to administer in patients with poor performance status (PS), advanced metastatic lesion, and unresectable colon cancer. We report herein our experience of a patient who showe...
The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) on antiEGFR and bevacizumab efficacy in metastatic colorectal ...
STRATEGIC-1 is a study designed to determine the best sequence of therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
Investigating the efficacy of maintenance and reinduction treatment or no treatment and watchful waiting in subjects with inoperable or irresectable and non-progressive metastatic colorect...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the progression-free survival (PFS) in patients receiving S 95005 + bevacizumab (experimental arm) or capecitabine + bevacizumab (control arm)...
This will be a randomized, open-label, multicenter, phase II study. The study p opulation will consist of first-line metastatic colorectal cancer patients.
RATIONALE: G-CSF may prevent or control neutropenia caused by first-line therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well G-CSF wor...
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.
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.
Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
