Study Description

Patients and methods: We analyzed tumor samples of 256 patients enrolled in the AGITG-MAX 3-arm randomized controlled trial (RCT) who were randomly assigned to receive either capecitabine, or capecitabine and bevacizumab with- or without mitomycin. Chromosome 18q11.2-q12.1 copy number status was measured and correlated with PFS according to a predefined analysis plan with marker-treatment interaction as the primary end-point.Results: Chromosome 18q11.2-q12.1 losses were detected in 71% of patients (181/256) characteristic for mCRC. Consistent with the non-randomized study, significant PFS benefit of bevacizumab was observed in chromosome 18q11.2-q12.1 loss patients (P=0.009), and not in 18q no-loss patients (P=0.67). Although significance for marker-treatment interaction was not reached (Pinteraction = 0.28), hazard ratio and 95% confidence interval (HRinteraction 0.72, CI 0.39 - 1.32) show striking overlap with the non-randomized study cohorts (HRinteraction 0.41, CI 0.32 - 0.8) supported by a non-significant Cochrane chi-squared (P=0.11) for heterogeneity. Conclusions: PFS ... (Show More)
