Avastin and Taxotere for Esophagogastric Cancer
Phase II Study of Bevacizumab and Docetaxel (AvaTax) in Metastatic Esophagogastric Cancer

The purpose of this study is to determine what effects (good and bad) bevacizumab (Avastin) and docetaxel (Taxotere), used in combination, have on metastatic gastric and esophageal cancer.

Bevacizumab will be administered intravenously in an outpatient clinic once a week, every other week. Docetaxel will also be administered intravenously in the outpatient clinic once a week for three out of four weeks. Blood tests and vital signs will be performed weekly.

After the first eight weeks of therapy a CT scan will be performed to determine and assess the progress of the disease. If therapy is continued, radiological procedures will be performed at week 16 and every 8 weeks thereafter.

Treatment will be given for a minimum of 8 weeks, as long as the patient does not experience unacceptable side effects. Chemotherapy will continue for a year and a half as long as the cancer is responding and there are no unacceptable side effects.
