As presented at ASCO, second-line bevacizumab (Avastin) as monotherapy has been associated with a 28% response rate and an overall survival edge for refractory glioblastoma. Also presented at the ASCO meeting, adding oxaliplatin (Eloxatin) to a standard chemotherapy regimen for stage II or III colon cancer may provide a small five-year survival advantage.
