    Sherri….I hope for others to chime in on your question and to share first-hand experience.

    From what I know, Avastin and Irinotecan and 5-FU is approved for colon. kidney and lung cancer but oftentimes prescribed off-label for other cancers as well. Avastin slows the growth of new blood vessels by reducing oxygen and nutrients necessary for tumor survival.

    Hoping and wishing for one of our experts (patient, caregiver) to add additional info.
    Tons of good wishes are heading your way.


    I have been on Irinotecan, Leucovorin and 5-fluorouracil and it had been holding my cancer but unfortunately my ca-19 went from 2000 to 8750 last month. I go to Anderson and my doctor has added this Bevacizumab to my treatment of the next three months.

    Has anyone used this drug and what results did you have?

    Thanks for any information anyone can give.
