This is an open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentric, Phase IV study evaluating FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX plus cetuximab in the first-line therapy of subjects with KRAS wild-type metastatic CRC.
Cetuximab, a chimeric immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody, has been found to potentiate the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in experimental systems. The findings from clinical trials suggest a favorable risk-benefit ratio of the combination of irinotecan or oxaliplatin, infusional 5-FU/FA and biweekly cetuximab, and support the current study to demonstrate the therapeutic value of the biweekly cetuximab regimen as a combination partner for those regimens in subjects with KRAS wild-type mCRC in the first-line setting. The purpose of this study is to generate post marketing surveillance (PMS) data for cetuximab in first-line mCRC, which is mandated by the Licensing Authorities.
This is an open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentric Phase IV study evaluating FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX plus cetuximab in the first-line therapy of subjects with KRAS wild-type metastatic CRC. The study plans to enroll 100 subjects with KRAS wild type CRC at 20 centres across India. Tumour status, physical and laboratory examinations will be performed during the baseline visit. Subjects will be administered FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX and cetuximab according to the clinical condition in the following treatment visits. Regular safety assessments and all adverse events (AEs) will be documented throughout and until the end-of-study visit. The outcome of AEs ongoing at the final tumour assessment visit will be followed up at the end-of-study visit (If possible, 6 weeks after the last administration of study medication but before second-line anticancer treatment, and not earlier than 30 days after the end of study treatment). Skin toxicity present at the end-of-study visit will be followed up until outcome is known.
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Cetuximab in combination with standard chemotherapy such as FOLFOX or FOLFIRI as first-line therapy of patients with KRAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.
- To evaluate the efficacy of Cetuximab in combination with standard chemotherapy as first-line therapy of patients with KRAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.

The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn about the safety of cetuximab in patients with stage IV colorectal cancer, and who may benefit from cetuximab.
In this study, the investigational drug, temsirolimus, will be combined with cetuximab, a biologic agent used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Cetuximab in combination with temsirol...
This trial will evaluate Hu5F9-G4 in combination with cetuximab. Hu5F9-G4 is a monoclonal antibody which is designed to block a protein called CD47, which is widely expressed on human canc...
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, capecita...
This is a single arm, open-label clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of maintenance treatment with capecitabine plus cetuximab after first-line modified fluorouracil, leucov...
Cetuximab is a chimeric IgG1 monoclonal antibody which targets the extracellular domain of epidermal growth factor receptor. This antibody is widely used for colorectal cancer (CRC) treatment but its ...
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.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
