In brief: Yes

While chemo like FOLFOX is transiently effective, more immunotherapeutic agents are showing good responses.
Avastin (bevacizumab) a vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor and Erbitux effecting epidermal growth factor 1 are working well as is the newer Neo-102 against the immunogenic protein. Chemo in conjuction with the biologics (immunochemo) is the best combo.
