This Phase II study is open to patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have tried but failed chemotherapy regimens containing oxaliplatin and irinotecan. Patients must not have received anti-EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) treatment (for example, cetuximab, panitumumab) in the past. Patients with wild-type KRAS (v-Ki-ras2 Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog) colorectal cancer will be randomised to receive either BIBW 2992 or cetuximab. Patients with KRAS mutated colorectal cancer will not be randomised, but will all receive BIBW 2992. The main objectives of the study are: to compare the effectiveness of BIBW 2992 with that of cetuximab in patients with KRAS wild type cancer, and to assess the effectiveness of BIBW 2992 in patients with KRAS mutated cancer.

To evaluate the efficacy and adverse events with cetuximab plus FOLFOX administered as second- and third-line therapy in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients.
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...
Overexpression and activation of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) have been linked to poor prognosis in several human cancers. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody against EGFR, that is used ...
Mutations in the oncogene BRAF(V600E) are found in ~10% of colorectal cancers (CRCs) and are associated with poor prognosis. However, BRAF(V600E) has a limited response to the small-molecule drug, vem...
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.
