In brief: Oxaliplatin is good

Another good chemo drug is Oxaliplatin.
This is often used in combination with 5-FU and Avastin (bevacizumab). If your tumor is KRAS wild type, then EGFR inhibitors(like Cetuximab and Panitumumab) also become relevant choices to use alone or in combination with other drugs.
