This slide show highlights some of the top studies and news on colorectal cancer to come out of the 2014 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, held in Chicago.
Maintenance treatment with capecitabine and bevacizumab after 6 cycles of CAPOX B is an effective treatment in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, according to the final results of the CAIRO3 study.

First-line treatment with chemotherapy plus either bevacizumab or cetuximab resulted in equally effective outcomes for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
The role of oxaliplatin in early-stage rectal cancer may still be unclear, according to the differing disease-free survival results from two studies presented at the 2014 ASCO Annual Meeting.
Treatment with oxaliplatin-containing FOLFOX significantly improved the 3-year disease-free survival of select patients with curatively resected rectal cancer compared with treatment with 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin.
As part of our coverage of the 2014 ASCO Annual Meeting, we discuss some of the colorectal cancer research that is expected to be presented at the meeting.
