You start taking Avastin® (bevacizumab) with carboplatin and paclitaxel (chemotherapy) to treat your advanced nonsquamous non–small cell lung cancer (nsNSCLC). 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.  

Chemotherapy and Avastin right arrows

If you stop taking carboplatin and paclitaxel (chemotherapy),* you should still take Avastin as long as your disease is controlled and your side effects are manageable

*Carboplatin and paclitaxel are given for up to six cycles.

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 nsNSCLC even if:

  • You finish your carboplatin and paclitaxel (chemotherapy) treatment
  • You want a break from your treatment and your side effects are manageable
  • You are seeing good results. Continuing to take Avastin may continue to control your cancer
  • You stop carboplatin and paclitaxel (chemotherapy) because of side effects
