Prof Michael Geißler - Klinikum Esslingen, Esslingen am Neckar, Germany

Prof Geißler speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2017 about the VOLFI trial of FOLFOXIRI chemotherapy combined with panitumumab, an EGFR binding antibody, to treat RAS wildtype metastatic colorectal cancer.

He introduces the rationale of the trial, to investigate the impact of any monoclonal antibody with a FOLFOX based chemotherapy backbone, and notes the significant increase to response rates in both left and right-sided colorectal tumours.

Prof Geißler also notes the number of patients eligible for resection of secondary disease, and that the lack of improvement in PFS among trial patients is typical for metastatic colorectal cancer.

An essential consideration for panitumumab suitability will be patient fitness, as Prof Geißler notes the significant toxicity profile associated with the triplet combination.
