Biomarkers in Patients With Metastatic or Recurrent Head and Neck Cancer Treated With Cisplatin and Cetuximab on ECOG-E5397
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment.
PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in patients with metastatic or recurrent head and neck cancer treated with cisplatin and cetuximab on ECOG-E5397.
Head and Neck Cancer
Genetic: gene expression analysis
Genetic: microarray analysis
Other: immunohistochemistry staining method
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
|Official Title:||PTEN Determination in Squamous Cell Cancer of The Head and Neck Treated on E5397, A Randomized Phase III Trial of Cisplatin Plus Placebo Versus Cisplatin Plus C225 (Cetuximab) in Metastatic/Recurrent Head and Neck Cancer|
- Cetuximab activity as reflected in RR [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Progression-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||December 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Compare cetuximab activity, as reflected in response rate (RR), in PTEN-deficient and PTEN-expressing cancers.
- Examine RR, progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) in PTEN-deficient and PTEN-expressing cancers, by treatment arm.
OUTLINE: Tissue microarray slides collected earlier from ECOG-E5397 are immunostained with PTEN antibody and analyzed with AQUA.
