75 However, the differing mechanisms of action of bevacizumab and the tyrosine kinase inhibitors suggests the possibility of enhanced tumor control using an “upstairs– downstairs” approach that would include the EGF neutralization and VEGFR inhibition. 76 The lack of more compelling data for the role of VEGFtargeted agents remains a source of consternation for breast cancer investigators. One possible explanation for the lack of robust activity may stem from the fact that breast cancer is, as a tumor type, less driven by angiogenic factors than other tumor types such as renal cell carcinoma, or other tumors that express VEGF receptors more vividly.
It remains unclear precisely how bevacizumab may work. Bevacizumab may potentiate the effects of chemotherapy, and may itself have direct antineoplastic effects. 70 Based on the activity seen in metastatic disease, bevacizumab is being studied in treatment of early stage breast cancer. In ECOG 5103, patients with moderate to high risk breast 36 TARGETED THERAPIES IN BREAST CANCER cancer are randomized to receive chemotherapy alone, or chemotherapy with the addition of bevacizumab.
