You start taking Avastin® (bevacizumab) with interferon alfa to treat your mRCC. And you keep taking Avastin as long as your disease is controlled and your side effects are manageable. By continuing to take Avastin, you may be able to continue to control your cancer.

If you stop taking interferon alfa,* you may still take Avastin as long as your disease is controlled and your side effects are manageable.

What to remember about Avastin therapy

There are some side effects that may require you to stop Avastin therapy. Your doctor will determine whether you should stop taking Avastin. But as long as your side effects stay manageable and your cancer is under control, you should keep taking Avastin.

Continue taking Avastin for your mRCC even if:

  • You finish your interferon alfa treatment
  • You want a break from your treatment and your side effects are manageable
  • You are seeing good results. Continuing to take Avastin may control your cancer
  • You stop interferon alfa because of side effects
