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.
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.

Multicenter randomized phase II trial is to examine the safety and efficacy of carboplatin, docetaxel, bevacizumab followed by maintenance bevacizumab and erlotinib in patients with comple...
This study is being done to find out what effects a drug named/called bevacizumab has on patients and patients' tumors when given together with standard chemotherapy drugs. Making new bloo...
This is a Phase II study of docetaxel, bevacizumab, prednisone and thalidomide in patients with androgen independent metastatic prostate cancer who are previously untreated with chemothera...
Switch maintenance therapy, using alternative agents that were not administered during induction chemotherapy, is a treatment option for advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Bevac...
Docetaxel is one of the most effective anticancer drugs. However, the current formulation of docetaxel contains Tween 80 and ethanol as the solvent, which can cause severe side effects. Consequently, ...
A new method for the determination of total and released docetaxel from docetaxel-entrapped core-crosslinked polymeric micelles (CriPec®) by LC-MS/MS and its clinical application in plasma and tissues in patients with various tumours.
A sensitive, high-performance liquid chromatographic method was developed and validated, for determination of docetaxel from docetaxel-entrapped core-crosslinked polymeric micelles (CriPec®) in human...
Chemotherapy with docetaxel remains as the effective therapy to suppress castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) in some patients. However, most chemotherapy with docetaxel eventually fails with t...
Bevacizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Adding bevacizumab to a variety of first-line regimens used for metastatic colon cancer improves ou...
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.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
