Krishnansu S. Tewari, MD, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, Irvine, comments on the next steps for bevacizumab for recurrent cervical cancer.

Data from a phase III trial were presented at a plenary session at the 2013 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Meeting. The manuscript will be reviewed by the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) publications committee, CTEP, and the NCI. Then, Tewari says, it will be reviewed by the journal chosen by the researchers.

Clinical Pearls

As for the regulatory aspects of the trial, Tewari says that he is unsure of the timeline. Genentech and Roche, the manufacturers of the molecule, will discuss the possibility of approval with the FDA.
