How it works

Bevacizumab is a anti-angiogenic drug. It works by blocking a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This stops the formation of blood vessels that bring oxygen and nutrients to cancerous cells.
Q. What kinds of cancer can Bevacizumab be used for ?
Bevacizumab is approved for the treatment of cancer of the colon or rectum that has spread to other parts of the body. It must be given along with chemotherapy. Other types of cancers that it helps with includes certain types of lung cancer, kidney cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, and glioblastoma (a type of brain tumor).

Q. How is Bevacizumab given?
Bevacizumab is given as an infusion. That means you get it through a small needle in your vein or through a port, which is a device placed under your skin. Your doctor will decide your dose and duration and will monitor you for signs of an infusion reaction.

Q. How long can I take Bevacizumab for?
You keep taking Bevacizumab as long as your disease is controlled and your side effects are manageable. Your doctor will determine whether you should stop taking Bevacizumab. If your cancer progresses during this initial treatment, talk to your doctor if a different chemotherapy may be an option.

Q. How Bevacizumab works differently from chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy attacks fast-growing cells, like cancer cells. In contrast, the purpose of Bevacizumab is to prevent the growth of new blood vessels that feed tumors. This causes the tumour to shrink, or to stop growing.

Q. Does a person taking Bevacizumab still need chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy is still needed along with taking Bevacizumab. It makes chemotherapy work better.
