FOLFIRI + Bevacizumab With or Without Dalteparin in First Line Treatment of Advanced Colorectal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:44:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is for people with colorectal cancer, who have tumors that cannot be completely removed by surgery. Blood clots are a problem in patients with cancer. Blood clots are also a problem in patients receiving cancer drugs. Studies have shown that up to 17% of patients receiving cancer drugs experienced blood-clotting problems. One purpose of this study is to find if the drug combination of irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), bevacizumab and leucovorin (LV) affect blood-clotting factors. A second purpose of this study is to find out what effects the drug dalteparin has on clotting factors in the blood in patients receiving the drug combination of irinotecan, 5-FU, bevacizumab and LV. It is hoped that adding dalteparin to chemotherapy may benefit patients with colorectal cancer by preventing blood clots

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.
