Maintenance bevacizumab is associated with increased hemoglobin in patients with advanced, nonsquamous, non-small cell lung cancer


, : Maintenance bevacizumab is associated with increased hemoglobin in patients with advanced, nonsquamous, non-small cell lung cancer. Cancer Investigation 30(3): 231-235

We retrospectively analyzed hematologic parameters in 22 patients with advanced, nonsquamous, NSCLC undergoing VEGF inhibition on a phase II clinical trial of bevacizumab, carboplatin, and gemcitabine. We also examined TTP in relation to hemoglobin changes. Median hemoglobin increased significantly from a 12.9 g/dL pretreatment to 13.8 g/dL (p =.01) after the second cycle of maintenance bevacizumab until the first off cycle measurement. There was no difference in TTP in patients who achieved a rise in hemoglobin compared with patients who did not (median 238 days vs. 268 days, p =.38.) Maintenance bevacizumab is associated with increased hemoglobin in advanced, nonsquamous, NSCLC patients.
