New data at ASCO show CAMPTOSAR is key to treating 1st line metastatic colorectal cancer

aluated the impact of adding bevacizumab to FOLFIRI and mIFL. A statistically significant improvement in OS for patients treated with FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab was seen when compared with those receiving mIFL plus bevacizumab. A total of 87 percent of patients were still alive after one year compared to 61 percent of patients given mIFL plus bevacizumab. The most frequent grade 3/4 adverse events in both arms were diarrhea, neutropenia and hypertension, with neutropenia and hypertension being higher in the FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab arm.

"This study enhances our understanding of combining FOLFIRI with the targeted agent bevacizumab as a standard treatment in first-line metastatic colorectal cancer patients," said Dr. Fuchs. "FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab significantly improved OS when compared to mIFL plus bevacizumab and both regimens were tolerable."
