Gemcitabine and Docetaxel With Or Without Bevacizumab in Leiomyosarcoma, Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma and Angiosarcoma

2014-08-27 03:22:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test whether an experimental drug called bevacizumab given together with gemcitabine and docetaxel, a standard chemotherapy regimen for sarcoma, can help sarcoma patients. This trial will compare gemcitabine, docetaxel and bevacizumab with gemcitabine and docetaxel alone. The investigators want to find out whether bevacizumab given with gemcitabine and docetaxel is better than gemcitabine and docetaxel alone as treatment for sarcoma.
