Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: FOLFOXIRI plus bevacizumab
BEVACIZUMAB 5 mg/Kg i.v. followed by IRINOTECAN 165 mg/sqm i.v. over 1 hr followed by OXALIPLATIN 85 mg/sqm i.v. over 2 hr concomitantly with l-LV 200 mg/sqm over 2 hrs followed by 5FU 3.200 mg/sqm c.i. over 48 hrs starting on day 1. Cycles repeated every 2 weeks
Drug: Bevacizumab
Drug: Irinotecan
Drug: Oxaliplatin
Drug: 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: PFS rate at 10 months from study entry ]
    PFS was calculated from the day of treatment start to the first observation of disease progression or death from any cause.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response rate (RR) [ Time Frame: 2007-2010 ]
    Response evaluation was performed every 8 weeks from the day of treatment start until disease progression for each enrolled patient for the full lenght of the study. Response evaluation was performed according to RECIST criteria. Responses were subsequently confirmed by a central review.

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 2007-2010 ]
    OS was calculated from the day of treatment start until death from any cause for each enrolled patient for the full lenght of the study, censoring patients who had not died at the last date known to be alive.

  3. Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 2007-2010 ]
    During the full lenght of first-line treatment, number of enrolled patients reporting adverse events was recorded. Adverse events were evaluated according to National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria (version 3.0).

  4. Evaluation of potential surrogate markers predictive of bevacizumab activity [ Time Frame: 2007-2010 ]
    During first-line therapy and at disease progression.
