Biweekly Avastin and Docetaxel as the First Line Treatment for Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of biweekly docetaxel and bevacizumab in the first line treatment of metastatic breast cancer by using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST criteria) and NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTC-AE) version 3. In addition several biochemical makers are tested as possible predictive factors.

Description

Patients with histologically or cytologically proven measurable or nonmeasurable metastatic breast cancer are treated with a combination of biweekly docetaxel and bevacizumab as the first line treatment in multicenter phase II trial. The outcome measures would be PFS, Response rate (RECIST), duration of response, safety (NCI CTC-AE version 3) and survival. In addition several biochemical makers are tested as possible predictive factors. Treatment would be continued until PD, patient's refusal or treatment discontinuation due to side-effects or patients death. In responding patients bevacizumab would be continued either alone or in hormone receptor positive patients combined with hormone treatment until progression.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

An anti-VEGF recombinant monoclonal antibody consisting of humanized murine antibody. It inhibits VEGF receptors and prevents the proliferation of blood vessels.

Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Neoplasms located in the vasculature system, such as ARTERIES and VEINS. They are differentiated from neoplasms of vascular tissue (NEOPLASMS, VASCULAR TISSUE), such as ANGIOFIBROMA or HEMANGIOMA.
