This open-label single arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Avastin added to XELOX in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and disease progression on 1st line therapy with FOLFIRI plus Avastin. Patients will receive Avastin (7.5mg/kg iv infusion every 3 weeks) and standard XELOX (Xeloda plus oxaliplatin) chemotherapy. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression and the target sample size is 100 individuals.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
bevacizumab [Avastin], capecitabine [Xeloda], oxaliplatin

This 2 arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of maintenance treatment with Avastin + Xeloda, after initial treatment with Xeloda + oxaliplatin + Avastin, in patients with metastati...
This 2 arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of 2 different treatment schedules of oral Xeloda with intravenous Eloxatin (oxaliplatin) and intravenous bevacizumab (Avastin) as a ...
This 2 arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of 2 treatment regimens of Xeloda and Avastin, with either irinotecan or oxaliplatin administered for the first 12 cycles, as first l...
This single arm study will investigate possible pharmacokinetic interactions between Xeloda and oxaliplatin, and assess whether the pharmacokinetics of Xeloda and/or oxaliplatin is influen...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the progression free survival of capecitabine (Xeloda), oxaliplatin and bevacizumab (Avastin) in previously untreated metastatic esophagogastric ad...
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...
Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy can cause hepatic sinusoidal injury (HSI), portal hypertension, and splenic sequestration of platelets. Evidence suggests that bevacizumab may protect against HSI.
This study aimed to clarify the predictive impact of visceral fat on response to bevacizumab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).
S-1 and irinotecan plus bevacizumab versus mFOLFOX6 or CapeOX plus bevacizumab as first-line treatment in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (TRICOLORE): a randomized, open-label, phase 3, non-inferiority trial.
Combination therapy with oral fluoropyrimidine and irinotecan has not yet been established as first-line treatment for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). We performed a randomized, open-label, phase...
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
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.
