ASPECCT ('763) Trial Design
ASPECCT is a global, randomized, multicenter, open-label, Phase 3 non-inferiority trial designed to compare the effect of panitumumab versus cetuximab on overall survival for monotherapy treatment of chemorefractory metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) in 999 patients with wild-type
KRAS tumors (primary endpoint). Secondary endpoints included safety, patient reported outcomes, progression-free survival, time to response, time to treatment failure and duration of response.
Patients were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive 6 mg/kg of intravenous panitumumab every 14 days or 400 mg/m 2 of an initial dose of intravenous cetuximab, followed by 250 mg/m 2 of intravenous cetuximab every seven days.
