When Avastin was combined with irinotecan, 38 percent of patients taken care of immediately Avastin. Patients receiving Avastin by itself had a median overall survival of 9.2 months in comparison to 8.7 months for those receiving Avastin in conjunction with irinotecan, which was a secondary endpoint in the scholarly study. Most adverse events linked to Avastin in this trial appeared to be related to those previously reported in additional Avastin studies.
