Colon Cancer: CTSU E5202 (Hematology Oncology Associates)

CTSU E5202: A Randomized Phase III Study Comparing 5-FU, Leucovorin and Oxaliplatin vs 5-FU, Leucovorin, Oxaliplatin and Bevacizumab in Patients with Stage II Colon Cancer at High Risk for Recurrence to Determine Prospectively the Prognostic Value of Molecular Markers.


The purpose of this study is to determine whether specific biological features (often called tumor markers or markers) seen in tests done on a tumor (found in the colon) can be used to predict recurrence of tumors in patients with stage II colon cancer.

This study will also compare the effects (good and bad) of a combination of chemotherapy drugs, when given with and without a new drug, bevacizumab, on patients with stage II colon cancer at high-risk for recurrence.
