Abstract

SYNOPSIS:

Bevacizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting vascular endothelial growth factor and has documented single-agent activity in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. The current study demonstrated that when combined with standard recurrent chemotherapy, bevacizumab can significantly improve progression-free survival and objective response rate without diminishing quality of life.
