Ang-2 – Angiopoietin-2 predicts the efficacy of an angiogenesis inhibitor in colorectal cancer therapy

The invention provides a novel predictive biomarker to help identify the patient population with the most
favorable clinical outcome to angiogenesis-targeted treatment in mCRC patients. Experiments revealed that patients with low pretherapeutic Ang-2 serum levels
receiving a bevacizumab-containing treatment were associated with a better Response rate compared to patients with high pretherapeutic Ang-2 levels. Additionally to a reduced risk of death (>90%) patients with low pretherapeutic Ang-2 levels showed a
significant increase in progression-free survival (up to five months).
