This trial will evaluate the combination of modified infusional 5-fluorouracil/ leucovorin, oxaliplatin (FOLFOX6), bevacizumab, and cetuximab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. FOLFOX6 has proven to be a safe and effective regimen in first line treatment of advanced colorectal cancer. The role of epidermal growth factor (EGFR) inhibitors in an earlier treatment setting in combination with optimal chemotherapy regimens is an important emerging question.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Response Rate (ORR), the Percentage of Patients Who Experience an Objective Benefit From Treatment [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI or CT: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Worsening of Their Disease [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Defined as the interval between the start date of treatment and the date of occurrence of progressive disease or death.

  • Overall Survival (OS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Death [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Measured from the date of first treatment until the date of death from any cause

  • Safety of FOLFOX6 Combined With Bevacizumab and Cetuximab [ Time Frame: 18 months ]

Cycles were 14 days.
