Official Title First-line Combination of Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin + Bevacizumab in Elderly Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Brief Summary
  • Oxaliplatin-based doublets plus bevacizumab are standard first-line therapy options for patients (pts) with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Slight adjustments in chemo-dosage are commonly applied in routinely practice to elderly pts, but those modified schedules have never been standardized
  • The addition of oxaliplatin versus no oxaliplatin to treatment with 5-fluorouracil in older and frail untreated pts with mCRC resulted in a non-statistically significant trend toward improvement in Progression Free Survival (PFS) and a lack of benefit in Overall Survival (OS)
  • In elderly pts deemed unfit for an upfront combined chemotherapy a fluoropyrimide-based monotherapy plus bevacizumab is considered a reasonable first-line treatment
  • Clinical definition of elderly (over 70 years old) pts with CRC that may deserve a more or less intensive combination therapy is still debated. The cut-off of 75 years old combined with ECOG PS assessment is a reasonable approach for clearly defining candidates to different approaches
  • Several geriatric screening tools have been used to identify pts with a geriatric profile potentially predicting for overall survival and risk of toxicity. The G8 screening tool has been already validated in pts with cancer showing the strongest prognostic value for OS; the CRASH score is able to stratify pts according an estimated risk of treatment-related toxicities

On the basis of these considerations, we designed the present observational study of first-line therapy with bevacizumab in combination with capecitabine and oxaliplatin in previously untreated elderly pts affected by unresectable mCRC in order to evaluate its efficacy in real world practice (as measured by progression free survival)

Intervention
  • Drug: Capecitabine

    750 mg/sqm/bid, day 2 to 15; if toxicities grade ≥2 do not occur, pts may subsequently receive capecitabine 1000 mg/sqm/bid, day 2 to 15 starting the second cycle based on investigator's choice.

    To be repeated every 3 weeks (21 days), for a maximum of 8 cycles.

    If no progression occurs, pts will receive maintenance capecitabine (starting at the same dose used at the last cycle of the induction treatment) plus bevacizumab every 3 weeks (21 days), until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient's refusal.

  • Drug: Oxaliplatin
    100 mg/sqm iv over 2 hours, day 1 To be repeated every 3 weeks (21 days), for a maximum of 8 cycles.
  • Drug: Bevacizumab

    7.5 mg/kg iv over 90 minutes, day 1; if the first infusion is tolerated, then subsequent infusions may be administered in 30 minutes.

    If no progression occurs, pts will receive maintenance capecitabine (starting at the same dose used at the last cycle of the induction treatment) plus bevacizumab every 3 weeks (21 days), until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient's refusal. To be repeated every 3 weeks (21 days), for a maximum of 8 cycles.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically proven diagnosis of colorectal cancer.
  • Initially unresectable metastatic colorectal cancer not previously treated with chemotherapy for metastatic disease.
  • Indication to oxaliplatin, capecitabine and bevacizumab as first line treatment.
  • At least one measurable lesion according to RECIST1.1 criteria.
  • Availability of a tumoral sample (primary and/or metastatic sites).
  • Age ≥ 70 years.
  • ECOG PS (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group - Performance Status) 1 or 2 for pts aged 70 to 75 years; ECOG PS 0 or 1 for pts aged > 75 years.
  • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
  • Previous adjuvant chemotherapy allowed only if with fluoropyrimidine monotherapy and more than 6 months elapsed between the end of adjuvant and first relapse.
  • Laboratory Requirements:

    • Neutrophils ≥1.5 x 109/L,
    • Platelets ≥100 x 109/L,
    • Hgb ≥ 9 g/dl.
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 time the upper-normal limits (UNL) of the normal values and ASAT (SGOT) and/or ALAT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 x UNL (or <5 x UNL in case of liver metastases),
    • Alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 x UNL (or <5 x UNL in case of liver metastases),
    • Creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min or serum creatinine ≤1.5 x UNL,
    • Urine dipstick of proteinuria <2+. Pts discovered to have 2+ proteinuria on dipstick urinalysis at baseline, should undergo a 24-hour urine collection and must demonstrate <1 g of protein/24 hr.
  • Male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential must be willing to use adequate contraception as approved by the investigator (i.e. barrier contraceptive measure or oral contraception, total abstinence) during the study and until 6 months after the last treatment.
  • Geriatric assessment by means of G8 screening tool and CRASH score.
  • Written informed consent to study procedures and to molecular analyses before pts registration.
  • Will and ability to comply with the protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:
