Chemotherapy attacks fast-growing cells, like cancer cells. Avastin® (bevacizumab) works differently than chemotherapy.

Avastin is a tumor-starving (anti-angiogenic) therapy. The purpose of Avastin is to prevent the growth of new blood vessels. This includes normal blood vessels and blood vessels that feed tumors.
