The ASCO Post Publishes Multiple Perspectives on Outcome of ODAC Meeting Regarding Bevacizumab in Advanced Breast Cancer
Date:9/1/2010

gy and Experimental Therapeutics at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center in Duarte, CA.

Gabriel Hortobagyi, MD, who attended the ODAC meeting as a consultant to Genentech, said "There is an urgent need for the FDA and the cancer community to agree upon exactly what qualifies a drug for approval." Dr. Hortobagyi is Professor of Medicine and Chairman, Department of Breast Medical Oncology, at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. "There would certainly be differences of opinion from the various corners as to the requisite degree of benefit," he added, but "by having this conversation we should arrive at what is commensurate with the expectations for advanced breast cancer."

"If we only accepted cancer treatments that improve survival, we would severely limit options for our patients," said Edith P. Perez, MD, Director of the Breast Cancer Program and Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL.

A decision by FDA on bevacizumab's breast cancer indication is expected later this year.
