This single arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of Avastin in combination with Herceptin and Xeloda as first-line treatment of patients with HER2-positive locally recurrent or metastatic breast cancer. Patients will receive 3-weekly treatment cycles of Herceptin (8mg/kg iv on day 1 of first cycle, followed by 6mg/kg iv maintenance dose on day 1 of subsequent cycles), Xeloda (1000mg/m2 bid po on days 1-14 of each treatment cycle) and Avastin (15mg/kg on day 2 of first treatment cycle,and on day 1 of each subsequent cycle).The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, and the target sample size is <100 individuals.
