Case reports are presented for three patients with metastatic breast cancer who received first-line treatment with bevacizumab in combination with taxanes in clinical trials. Two patients showed peak reductions in lesion size of 49 and 70%, respectively. In one patient, subsequent treatment with bevacizumab in combination with capecitabine [Xeloda (after discontinuation of paclitaxel due to asthenia)] yielded peak reductions in target lesion size of 78%. One patient experienced a progression-free survival time of 16 months. In all three patients, bevacizumab was well tolerated and mostly displayed only mild toxicities.
