Trial Description


The purpose of this study is to assess whether treatment with the study drug, panitumumab given concomitantly with every 2 (Q2) week oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy and bevacizumab improves progression-free survival (PFS) compared to treatment Q2-week with oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy and bevacizumab alone. All subjects will receive Q2-week oxaliplatin- or irinotecan-based chemotherapy and bevacizumab. Control arm subjects will not receive concomitant panitumumab therapy.

  • Available paraffin-embedded tumor tissue (from primary tumor or metastasis) or unstained slides of paraffin-embedded tissue
  • If history of other primary cancer, subject will be eligible only if she or he has:
  • Curatively resected non-melanomatous skin cancer;
  • Curatively treated cervical carcinoma in situ;
  • Other primary solid tumor curatively treated with no known active disease present and no treatment administered for the last 5 years.
  • Adequate hematologic data as follows:
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1.5 x 10^9 cells/L;
  • Platelet count greater than or equal to 100 x 10^9/L;

  • Serum creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN);
  • Urinary protein dipstick of less than 2+ (if urinary dipstick 2+ or greater, then excretion of less than or equal to 1000 mg of protein per day as determined by 24-hour urine collection).
  • Adequate hepatic function:
  • Alkaline phosphatase less than or equal to 3 x ULN (if liver metastases, less than or equal to 5 x ULN);
  • Aspartate aminotransferase (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase)(AST) less than or equal to 3 x ULN (if liver metastases, less than or equal to 5 x ULN);

  • Bilirubin less than or equal to 2 x ULN. - Competent to comprehend, sign, and date an IRB-approved informed consent form
  • Before any study-specific procedure, the appropriate written informed consent must be obtained.

Exclusion Criteria:
