In Europe, combinations of targeted cancer therapies and conventional chemotherapies, more precisely bevacizumab-Folfiri and cetuximab-irinotecan, have been used as successive regimens in unresectable MCRC since 2006. The OMIT BPL analysed the impact of bevacizumab-Folfiri as first line treatment and cetuximab-based regimens as second or further line treatment on a cohort of unselected patients in usual clinical pratice.
3 patients stopped bevacuzimab-Folfiri due to:
- Gastrointestinal toxicity + high blood pressure (2)
- Phlebitis (1)
2 patients stopped Cetuximab-Folfiri due to:
- Cutaneous toxicity (1)
- Cutaneous toxicity + gastrointestinal toxicity (1)
PROGRESSION FREE SURVIVAL
The median of progression free survival (PFS) for patients treated with bevacizumab and cetuximab was 17.51 months IC 95% [12,86 - 22,16]. The medians of PFS from initiation to the stopping date of bevacizumab and from initiation to the stopping date of cetuximab were respectively 6.87 months IC 95 % [4.75 - 8.98] and 5.06 months IC 95 % [3.49 - 6.63].
OVERALL SURVIVAL (+/- resection)
The median overall survival for bevacizumab + cetuximab therapy was 27.33 months IC 95% [23.80 - 30.87] and after initiation of cetuximab therapy was 16.33 months IC 95 % [11.84 - 20.82].
The three-year survival probability for the patients who underwent metastasis resection after Folfiri-bevacizumab was 86 % vs 44 % for the patients who did not (p<0.0079 by the log-rank test) and the median overall survival for the patients who underwent metastases resection after Folfiri-bevacuzimab was not reached vs 24.08 months [19.23-28.93] for the patients who did not.
WHAT DID THE PATIENTS RECEIVE AFTER ?
We present the results, obtained from OMIT BPL database, concerning patients treated successively by Folfiri-bevacizumab and cetuximab-based regimens. We observed that the patients who underwent metastasis resection after Folfiri-bevacizumab had an overall survival significantly improved compared to those who did not.
This study is ongoing and is expected to enroll approximatively 150 patients.
