First line WT KRAS mCRC

Detailed Description:

Retrospective studies have shown the influence of some factors on the efficacy of treatment with cetuximab (nicotine, magnesium etc..). No randomized study has compared the mode of administration of weekly and biweekly cetuximab. What are the factors influencing patient compliance? Adverse events, the relation between doctor and patient. PREMIUM will attempt to explore and assess the variables associated with efficacy and compliance to treatment and study practices in France for clinical management.
