CLINICAL TRIAL SUMMARY

MDACC Study No:2004-0779 (clinicaltrials.gov NCT No: NCT00766220)
Title:Phase II Randomized study of SIR-Spheres, Yttrium microspheres with cetuximab plus irinotecan for patients with advanced colorectal cancer metastases to the liver
Principal Investigator:Ravi Murthy
Treatment Agent:Cetuximab; CPT-11; Yttrium 90
Study Status:Terminated
Study Description:The goal of this clinical research study is to find out what effects
radioactive particles, SIR-spheres, have when injected into the liver, followed
by systemic chemotherapy with a combination of cetuximab and irinotecan
compared to those who have systemic therapy alone, in patients with colon
cancer that has metastasized to the liver. The safety of this treatment and how
well it controls the disease will also be studied.
