Cetuximab shows activity in KRAS (Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog) wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Recent studies have demonstrated that cetuximab induces antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) in mCRC. We investigated the associations of FcγR (fragment C γ receptor) and EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor)(More)

The present phase III study was conducted to compare two doses of bevacizumab combined with irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin (FOLFIRI) in the second-line setting after first-line therapy with bevacizumab plus(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with colorectal cancer treated with oxaliplatin are at risk of hypersensitivity reactions, with the incidence estimated to be 12%-20%.

However, in a(More)
