Hello dear friends:

 

Does anyone now the difference between avastin and cyramza ??

 

I saw an ocologist yesterday for a 3rd. opinion and he said that he would use cyramza instead of avastin, He said that cyramza is like avastin but far more superior. 

 

Enjoy the weekend!

It attacks the VEGFR2 receptor that is considered the most problematic VEGFR for mCRC.  Avastin binds and neutralizes  VEGF-A, a growth factor for blood vessels.   VEGF-A binds to both VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2.
