Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: chemoradiation
Type: Radiation
Overall Status
Pathological complete response, (pCR) correlates with a favourable overall prognosis in locally advanced rectal cancer patients underwent preoperative chemoradiation, so obtaining a pCR might be beneficial. The aim of the study is to investigate safety and efficacy of preoperative IMRT combined with bevacizumab and capecitabine. primary endpoint is pathological complete remission rate.
