e) compared with chemotherapy alone. With chemotherapy, 25% of tumors responded; with the combination of chemotherapy and bevacizumab, 49% did so.

Rush University Medical Center has been involved in the study of Avastin from the very beginning, participating in the Phase I, Phase II and Phase III studies of the drug. The next step is studying the drug in the adjuvant setting to determine if it can help decrease the risk of cancer recurrence.

"The tumor cant grow bigger than the size of a sesame seed without an oxygen supply," said Cobleigh. "And patients can stay on Avastin as long at it works. It is not a chemotherapy drug so it has minimal toxicity. "

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 178,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 40,000 will die from the disease in the United States in 2007.
