Therapy Name Cetuximab + Fluorouracil + Irinotecan + Leucovorin
Synonyms Cetuximab + FOLFIRI
Therapy Description

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Drug Name Trade Name Synonyms Drug Classes Drug Description
Cetuximab Erbitux IMC-C225 EGFR Antibody 29 Erbitux (cetuximab) is a monoclonal antibody directed against EGFR, which inhibits signal transduction and cell proliferation (PMID: 28695301). Erbitux (cetuximab) is FDA approved for use in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and KRAS wild-type, EGFR positive colorectal cancer (FDA.gov).
Fluorouracil Adrucil 5-FU Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11 Adrucil (fluorouracil) is an antimetabolite chemotherapeutic agent, which interferes with DNA and RNA synthesis thereby preventing cancer cell growth and is FDA approved for colorectal, breast, stomach, and pancreatic cancer (FDA.gov).
Irinotecan Camptosar CPT-11|Onivyde TOPO1 inhibitor 8 Camptosar (irinotecan) inhibits Topoisomerase-I activity, resulting in inhibition of DNA replication, and potentially leading to cell death and is indicated as a component of first-line therapy in combination with 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin for patients with metastatic or recurrent colorectal carcinoma (FDA.gov).
Leucovorin Wellcovorin Calcium folinate|Calcium citrovorum factor|folinic acid Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11 Wellcovorin (leucovorin) is a metabolite of folate that enhances the efficacy of fluoruracil (PMID: 32490554).

Molecular Profile Indication/Tumor Type Response Type Therapy Name Approval Status Evidence Type Efficacy Evidence References
NRAS wild-type colorectal cancer predicted - sensitive Cetuximab + Fluorouracil + Irinotecan + Leucovorin Phase III Actionable In a Phase III trial, the combination of Erbitux (cetuximab) and FOLFIRI demonstrated a significant clinical benefit in OS, PFS, and objective response compared to FOLFIRI alone in colorectal cancer patients with RAS wild-type status (PMID: 25605843). 25605843
NRAS mutant colorectal cancer no benefit Cetuximab + Fluorouracil + Irinotecan + Leucovorin Phase III Actionable In a retrospective analysis of a Phase III trial, the combination of Erbitux (cetuximab) and FOLFIRI did not demonstrate an improved clinical benefit compared to FOLFIRI alone in colorectal cancer patients with RAS mutations (PMID: 25605843). 25605843
