The purpose of this study is to determine the objective response rate of patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer treated with the combination of cetuximab, capecitabine, and oxaliplatin with out without bevacizumab.
Research has shown that the more drug treatments patients with cancer of the colon or rectum receive, the longer they live. One uses the drugs capecitabine and oxaliplatin which all patients on this study will receive. Bevacizumab is an antibody which blocks blood flow to tumors and increases how long patients with colorectal cancer live. However, it can increase the risk of stroke and heart attack. Bevacizumab is currently a standard part of treatment for colorectal cancer. Cetuximab is an antibody which blocks a protein called EGFR which shrinks colorectal cancer. It may be helpful with initial chemotherapy and with bevacizumab. One goal of this study is to find out the response rate (chance of tumor shrinking) with two treatments for colorectal cancer. All patients will get capecitabine, oxaliplatin and cetuximab. Half will receive bevacizumab. All drugs in this study are approved to treat colorectal cancer. This research study is being done to find the best, safest way to combine these therapies.

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...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from ...
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of capecitabine (2000 mg/m2/day by mouth [po], day 1 pm-day 15 am every 3 weeks [q3w]), oxaliplatin (130 mg/m2 intravenou...
This phase II study will evaluate which is the best way to administer cetuximab after recurrence in 1st line irinotecan+bevacizumab based treatment and to obtain results of the efficacy of...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab/capecitabine/oxaliplatin combination in metastatic or recurrent Korean colorectal cancer.
There is no single standard chemotherapy regimen for elderly patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC). A phase III trial has confirmed that both capecitabine monotherapy and capecitabine plus oxali...
Phase 2 study of treatment selection based on tumor thymidylate synthase expression in previously untreated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer: A trial of the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group (E4203).
The authors hypothesized that patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who had tumors with low thymidylate synthase (TS-L) expression would have a higher response rate to combined 5-fluoroura...
Progress has been made in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers through advances in systemic therapies, surgical interventions, and radiation therapy. At the Multi-Disciplinary Patient Care in Gas...
Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy can cause hepatic sinusoidal injury (HSI), portal hypertension, and splenic sequestration of platelets. Evidence suggests that bevacizumab may protect against HSI.
At ASCO 2017, and subsequently the ESMO congress 2017, a number of studies were presented which, in part, may change the present standard of therapy in gastrointestinal oncology. The German FLOT4 tria...
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.
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.
Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.
A form of LYNCH SYNDROME II associated with cutaneous SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS. Muir-Torre syndrome is also associated with other visceral malignant diseases include colorectal, endometrial, urological, and upper gastrointestinal neoplasms.
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.
