Cetuximab, a chimeric immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody, has been found to potentiate the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in experimental systems. The findings from clinical trials suggest a favorable risk-benefit ratio of the combination of irinotecan or oxaliplatin, infusional 5-FU/FA and biweekly cetuximab, and support the current study to demonstrate the therapeutic value of the biweekly cetuximab regimen as a combination partner for those regimens in subjects with KRAS wild-type mCRC in the first-line setting. The purpose of this study is to generate post marketing surveillance (PMS) data for cetuximab in first-line mCRC, which is mandated by the Licensing Authorities.
This is an open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentric Phase IV study evaluating FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX plus cetuximab in the first-line therapy of subjects with KRAS wild-type metastatic CRC. The study plans to enroll 100 subjects with KRAS wild type CRC at 20 centres across India. Tumour status, physical and laboratory examinations will be performed during the baseline visit. Subjects will be administered FOLFIRI/ FOLFOX and cetuximab according to the clinical condition in the following treatment visits. Regular safety assessments and all adverse events (AEs) will be documented throughout and until the end-of-study visit. The outcome of AEs ongoing at the final tumour assessment visit will be followed up at the end-of-study visit (If possible, 6 weeks after the last administration of study medication but before second-line anticancer treatment, and not earlier than 30 days after the end of study treatment). Skin toxicity present at the end-of-study visit will be followed up until outcome is known.
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Cetuximab in combination with standard chemotherapy such as FOLFOX or FOLFIRI as first-line therapy of patients with KRAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.
- To evaluate the efficacy of Cetuximab in combination with standard chemotherapy as first-line therapy of patients with KRAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.
