Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival: Time to tumor progression or death (whichever occurs first) from the start of Avastin treatment, as determined by the usual follow-up examinations of routine clinical practice [ Time Frame: approximately 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1-year survival: Percentage of patients still alive one year after the start of Avastin treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Clinical/demographic patient characteristics at initiation of treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival in patients with triple negative receptor status [ Time Frame: approximately 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
