In brief: Identical

Data on Bevacizumab or Erbitux in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, patients who do not have a KRAS 12/13 gene mutation, have nearly identical survival rates.
These identical results were seen after chemotherapy, where survival with chemo alone was about 5 months vs. 7-8 months using either bevacizumab (Avastin) or cetuximab (Erbitux).
