Leucovorin, Fluorouracil, Cetuximab, and Oxaliplatin in Treating Patients With Stage IV Colorectal Cancer and Liver Metastases That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leucovorin, fluorouracil, and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as cetuximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) and giving them together with cetuximab may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving leucovorin together with fluorouracil, cetuximab, and oxaliplatin works in treating patients with stage IV colorectal cancer and liver metastases that cannot be removed by surgery.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive cetuximab IV over 1 hour, leucovorin calcium IV over 2 hours, and fluorouracil IV continuously over 46 hours. Patients also receive oxaliplatin by hepatic arterial infusion over 2 hours. Treatment continues for at least 3 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
