  Purpose

Radiotherapy alone is generally the only treatment in old patients with SCCHN. No evidence indicates combination with EGFR Target therapy can bring benefit for the patients. Senile Society is coming in China, the mean age in Beijing reaches 80 years old. A valuable treatment with efficacy and safety is needed for senile patient with SCCHN. The purpose of the study "Prospective, Randomized, Controlled, Phase II Multiple Centered Clinical Trial of Nimotuzumab Combined with Radiotherapy for Senile Locally Advanced SCCHN" was sponsored to evaluate the efficacy and safety for Nimotuzumab Combined with Radiotherapy in Senile SCCHN patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response rate: complete response + partial response on RECIST evaluation system [ Time Frame: 1-month after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the Safety of Nimotuzumab Combined with Radiotherapy for old patients. Record the Number and Grade of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: participants will be followed during the treatment,an expected average of 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Objective response rate: complete response + partial response on RECIST [ Time Frame: 3-months after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the Local control Rate in 2 years. [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the Quality of Life(QoL)of Senile Locally Advanced SCCHN treated by Nimotuzumab Combined with Radiotherapy or Radiotherapy alone. [ Time Frame: participants will be followed during the treatment,an expected average of 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Record the subjective description of the patients by themself according to the QOL table.

  • Evaluate the overall survival of the patient in 2 years. [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the progression free survival of the patient in 2 years. [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the Quality of Life(QoL)of Senile Locally Advanced SCCHN treated by Nimotuzumab Combined with Radiotherapy or Radiotherapy alone. [ Time Frame: every 3 months after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Record the subjective description of the patients by themself according to the QOL table.

  • Evaluate the Local control Rate in 3 years. [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the Local control Rate in 5 years. [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the overall survival of the patient in 3 years. [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the overall survival of the patient in 5 years. [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the progression free survival of the patient in 3 years. [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the progression free survival of the patient in 5 years. [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
