This study is a review of the utilization and outcomes of bevacizumab use in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients receiving 1st-line (1L) and 2nd-line (2L) treatment in the outpatient community setting in the U.S.
This study reviews previously reported observations from the BRiTE (Bevacizumab Regimens: Investigation of Treatment Effects and Safety) registry, and also evaluates patients treated more recently and in both 1L and 2L settings. The study did not show a significant survival advantage with prolonged use of bevacizumab following progression. Further research is needed to confirm these findings.
