Brief summary
This is a clinical trial investigating the effectiveness and safety of the combination of the
study drugs bevacizumab and AMG386 in patients with advanced (metastatic) chemotherapy-naive
bowel (colorectal) cancer. Chemotherapy has a significant impact in metastatic bowel cancer
in terms of maintenance of quality of life and extension of survival. However, ultimately
tumours will develop resistance to these agents and further treatment options are urgently

Angiogenesis is a process that results in the formation of new blood vessels. Similar to
normal tissues, solid tumours require new blood vessels for growth and survival. Hence, drugs
targeting angiogenesis may be useful treatment options for patients with bowel cancer.

AMG386 and bevacizumab act on 2 different pathways relevant to angiogenesis. There is
evidence from laboratory and animal studies to suggest that such a combination could be
useful as a cancer treatment. Previous studies in humans have shown that AMG386 and
bevacizumab can be combined safely.. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness and safety
of the combination of AMG386 and bevacizumab in patients with advanced bowel cancer.

40 patients from approximately four hospitals in Australia will participate in this trial,
with approximately 20 patients being enrolled at Austin Health. All participants will receive
the same treatment.
