Regorafenib has become a standard later stage treatment of metastatic colorectal carcinoma (mCRC) worldwide, though particular side effects such as fatigue and diarrhoea complicate its use in practice. Until now, consensus was split on how to use regorafenib for effective treatment - should the full dose be initiated and reduced until tolerated, or should a lower initial dose be used with a view to titrate up?

The REDOS trial evaluated the safety and activity of two regorafenib dosing schedules in patients with refractory mCRC. An escalation strategy was implemented to optimise the dose of regorafenib and to improve the tolerability of this drug to patients while maintaining survival benefits.

Join lead investigator Dr Tanois Bekaii-Saab and Dr Axel Grothey for a critical analysis of the trial, and a discussion of future directions in this therapy area.
