Dr Takayuki Yoshino presents his study into trifluridine/tipiracil plus bevacizumab (FTD/TPI + BEV) and trifluridine/tipiracil (FTD/TPI) monotherapy in metastatic colorectal cancer.
He discusses the methodology for his data analysis study where the team searched multiple databases; only randomised controlled trials (RCTs), non-RCTs, and prospective observational studies of previously treated patients with mCRC were evaluated.
Dr Yoshino summarises the outcome of the meta-analysis study which suggested that FTD/TPI + BEV provides benefits over FTD/TPI in patients with refractory mCRC and has a similar safety profile, but it is associated with a higher rate of grade ≥3 neutropenia.
