A randomised phase II study of Panitumumab monotherapy and panitumumab plus 5 fluorouracil as first line therapy for RAS and BRAF wild type metastatic colorectal cancer
The primary endpoint for this trial is rate of progression free survival at 6 months, as defined by RECIST V1.1. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. In the intervention group, participants will receive targeted therapy (intravenous Panitumumab 6mg/Kg)alone, every two weeks, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. In the control group, participants will receive Panitumumab plus standard chemotherapy (5-fluorouracil / 5-FU) every two weeks until disease progression or toxicity. The chemotherapy schedule will consist of 5FU bolus 400mg/m2; leucovorin 200mg/m2; 5FU 46 hour infusion at 2400mg/m2.
