Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the response to bevacizumab in combination with temozolomide in patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the time to progression, progression free survival and safety of bevacizumab in combination with temozolomide in this patient population [ Time Frame: TBD ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 34
Study Start Date: November 2004
Study Completion Date: December 2012
Primary Completion Date: July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Bevacizumab
    Given intravenously every other week. Participants can continue to receive study drug as long as there is no disease progression or serious side effects.
    Drug: Temozolomide
    Given once daily for one week followed by a one week rest period. This one-week on/one-week off scheduled will be continued as long as there is no disease progression or serious side effects.
Detailed Description:

Patients will receive temozolomide orally once daily for one week, followed by a one-week rest period. This one-week on/one week off schedule will continue for the duration of treatment unless significant side effects develop.

Bevacizumab will be administered intravenously every other week. After eight weeks (two cycles), a CT scan will be performed to see how treatment affected tumor growth.

Bactrim, an antibiotic, and acyclovir, an antiviral medicine, will be given in order to help prevent infection.

Blood tests will be done every other week to evaluate any side effects.

Once the study has been completed, a physical exam, vital signs, blood tests, and CT scan will be performed.

Patients will remain on the study as long as they continue to receive benefit from the treatment and there are no serious side effects.
