Bevacizumab (B) in association with systemic chemotherapy is commonly used for the treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastases. The aim of this study was to monitor tumor response, overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with colorectal cancer liver metastases treated with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) + B compared with TACE alone and to correlate the results with KRAS mutational status. Patients & methods: This was an observational multicentric case-control study (NCT03732235) on the efficacy and safety of B administered after TACE. Results: The disease control rate was significantly higher for the TACE + B than the TACE alone group (p < 0.001). KRAS wild-type patients had a significantly better disease control rate than those with KRAS mutations in the TACE + B group. Median OS and PFS were similar for the TACE + B and TACE groups, whereas median time to progression was significantly higher for the TACE + B group (p < 0.01). Conclusion: The combination of TACE with B may improve tumor response and delay disease progression.

Abstract

Bevacizumab (B) in association with systemic chemotherapy is commonly used for the treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastases. The aim of this study was to monitor tumor response, overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with colorectal cancer liver metastases treated with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) + B compared with TACE alone and to correlate the results with KRAS mutational status. Patients & methods: This was an observational multicentric case-control study (NCT03732235) on the efficacy and safety of B administered after TACE. Results: The disease control rate was significantly higher for the TACE + B than the TACE alone group (p < 0.001). KRAS wild-type patients had a significantly better disease control rate than those with KRAS mutations in the TACE + B group. Median OS and PFS were similar for the TACE + B and TACE groups, whereas median time to progression was significantly higher for the TACE + B group (p < 0.01). Conclusion: The combination of TACE with B may improve tumor response and delay disease progression.
