To evaluate the response rate of cetuximab plus irinotecan combination therapy in subjects with EGFR-detectable metastatic colorectal carcinoma who have documented progressive disease to irinotecan-based chemotherapy and who have failed (progressive disease or intolerance) previous oxaliplatin-based and fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapies.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

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 first phase II trial with cetuximab and FOLFOX, as 1st line therapy for MCRC, presented at ASCO 2004, showed a 81% response rate, with no unexpected toxicities for the combination. T...
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.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of SU011248 and the highest dose of this drug that can be given safely in combination with the chemotherapy drugs irinotecan and cetuxi...
This is a study to assess the efficacy and safety of the addition of cetuximab to the combined regimen of capecitabine, oxaliplatin and bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated ad...
The EGFR-specific mAb cetuximab is one of the most effective treatments for oropharyngeal carcinoma, while patient responses to EGFR inhibitors given alone are modest. Combination treatment with radia...
This study aimed to investigate theranostic strategies in colorectal and skin cancer based on fragments of cetuximab, an anti-EGFR mAb, labeled with radionuclide with imaging and therapeutic propertie...
The present study investigated the molecular mechanism by which the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor cetuximab enhances the antitumor activity of the mitogen-activated protein kinase ...
The FIRE-3 trial investigated combination chemotherapy plus either cetuximab or bevacizumab in patients with untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) not scheduled for upfront surgery. We aimed t...
A major obstacle for successful management of patients with colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is resistance to anti-cancer cytotoxic treatments. Here, we identified a mechanism of multidrug resistance in wil...
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.
Human COLORECTAL CARCINOMA cell line.
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).
A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
