Reporting Groups
  Description
Arm A (Cetuximab, Gemcitabine, Capecitabine, Radiation) Patients receive cetuximab IV over 60-120 minutes on day 1, once weekly, in weeks 1-24; gemcitabine hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on day 1, once weekly, in weeks 1-3, 13-15, 17-19, and 21-23; oral capecitabine twice daily on days 1-5, 5 days a week, in weeks 5-10. Patients also undergo radiotherapy once daily, 5 days a week, beginning in week 5 and continuing for approximately 5½ weeks (25 fractions).
Arm B (Bevacizumab, Gemcitabine, Capecitabine, Radiation) Patients receive bevacizumab IV over 60-90 minutes on day 1 every other week for 24 weeks. Patients also receive gemcitabine hydrochloride and capecitabine and undergo radiotherapy as in Arm A.
