The purpose of this study is to determine whether bevacizumab, capecitabine and oxaliplatin are an effective and safe first line of treatment for elderly patients with metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma.
The efficacy will be determined by objective response rate following RECIST criteria.
In several clinical trials with Bevacizumab, there has been demonstrated that elderly patients benefits as well as the younger of a combination therapy with chemotherapy plus Bevacizumab, but these results have come from subgroup analyses of trials not specifically design to test the effect of these combinations on the elderly. This clinical trial is specific only for elderly patients and we expect to confirm the benefits demosntrated in other clinical trials where the elderly patients were a number reduced.

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of capecitabine (2000 mg/m2/day by mouth [po], day 1 pm-day 15 am every 3 weeks [q3w]), oxaliplatin (130 mg/m2 intravenou...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab/capecitabine/oxaliplatin combination in metastatic or recurrent Korean colorectal cancer.
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...
To determine the maximum tolerated dose of Vandetanib with a current standard first-line chemotherapy regimen, capecitabine and oxaliplatin without and then with bevacizumab for the first ...
This trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the capecitabine and oxaliplatine plus bevacizumab combination as first-line treatment in elderly patients with metastatic colorectal ca...
Neoadjuvant therapy of bevacizumab in combination with oxaliplatin and capecitabine (XELOX) for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer with unresectable liver metastases: a phase II, open-label, single-arm, noncomparative trial.
This phase II, open-label study evaluated the efficacy and safety of neoadjuvant therapy with bevacizumab plus XELOX (capecitabine and oxaliplatin) for untreated metastatic colorectal cancer with unre...
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...
This study aimed to clarify the predictive impact of visceral fat on response to bevacizumab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).
We studied the relationship between intermediate criteria and overall survival (OS) in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients who received first-line chemotherapy with bevacizumab.
Metastatic colorectal cancer frequently occurs in elderly patients. Bevacizumab in combination with front line chemotherapy is a standard treatment but some concern raised about tolerance of bevacizum...
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
