Nimotuzumab is an IgG1 humanized monoclonal antibody that recognized an epitope located in the extra cellular domain of the human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Clinical efficacy has been shown in adult with head and neck cancer. The study assessed the safety, and efficacy of the combination of Nimotuzumab administered concomitantly with chemotherapy in patients with advanced colorectal cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and toxicity of this new treatment. Both acute and chronic toxicity will be evaluated. [ Time Frame: within study period ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the complete response rate, partial rate, disease response rate, disease control rate in the patients subject to treatment [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 48
Study Start Date: June 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Nimotuzumab and chemotherapy

    Experimental: Nimotuzumab and Irinotecan

    the chemotherapy treatment: Irinotecan (180 mg/m2/time, 1 time/14 days, until disease progression)

    the nimotuzumab treatment: 3 levels (200 mg/w, 400 mg/w, 600 mg/w, weekly, until disease progression)

    Other Name: Nimotuzumab
Detailed Description:
Nimotuzumab and Irinotecan will be administered to the patient until disease progression or development of toxicity preclude further treatment.Irinotecan will be administered once every 14 days,the dosage is 180mg/m2; Nimotuzumab treatment be divided 3 levels:200mg/w,400mg/w,600mg/w,weekly.The patients'blood test and liver and renal function tests will be monitored weekly, a physical exam and reassessment of the tumor will be performed and every 6 weeks,when the total result is the CR or PR, the result of the 6th and the 12th week should be compared.
