Bevacizumab and Erlotinib in Inoperable and Metastatic Hepatocellular Carcinoma

2014-08-27 03:46:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary efficacy endpoint will be the proportion of subjects that remain free of progression at the 27th week following the onset of treatment. Secondary objectives include the subject's time in weeks from treatment onset to documented disease progression as assessed by the RECIST criteria, response rate, median and overall survival, safety and tolerability.

Description

This is a phase II study to assess the proportion of subjects that remain progression-free by the 27th week following the onset of treatment and to assess the efficacy of the combination of Bevacizumab and Erlotinib in prolonging time to progression in subjects with inoperable and metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma. Subjects will be treated with a combination of rhuMAb VEGF (Bevacizumab), in combination with Erlotinib and TTP will be assessed as per RECIST criteria. The disease will be evaluated at base line and every 9 weeks with CT scan/MRI and AFP levels. Subjects will be kept on the study till disease progression (as defined by RECIST criteria) or death.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.

The type species of the genus ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS which causes human HEPATITIS B and is also apparently a causal agent in human HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA. The Dane particle is an intact hepatitis virion, named after its discoverer. Non-infectious spherical and tubular particles are also seen in the serum.

The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.

A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.

The founding member of the EPH FAMILY RECEPTORS. It was first cloned from an erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and is highly conserved among many mammalian species. Overproduction of the EphA1 receptor is associated with tumors and tumor cells of epithelial origin. It is also expressed at high levels in LIVER; LUNG; and KIDNEY; which is in contrast to many other members of the Eph receptor that are found primarily in tissues of the nervous system.
