This is a non-randomized study in patients who have received prior 5-FU therapy for colorectal cancer. The objective of this trial is to establish a maximum tolerated dose of ALIMTA and irinotecan given in combination as well as to assess the safety and efficacy of this combination for patients with locally advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer. ALIMTA and irinotecan will be given every 21 days.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to assess the antitumor activity of ALIMTA plus Oxaliplatin combination therapy in patients with previously untreated advanced colorectal cancer
The purpose of this study is to determine whether overall survival is prolonged in subjects with metastatic, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive colorectal cancer treated with...
This phase I trial will use the combination of irinotecan and BKM120 in patients with advanced colorectal cancer who have failed on or have become intolerant of at least one line of therap...
This study will evaluate whether NKTR-102, an investigational drug has an anti-tumor effect in patients with colorectal cancer. This study will also evaluate how the safety and anti-tumor ...
Irinotecan and raltitrexed are active against advanced colorectal cancer (ACC), act through different mechanisms, and have only partially overlapping toxicity profiles. The purpose of this...

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.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
