|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Head and Neck Cancer||Drug: ZD1839 (IRESSA) Drug: Cisplatin Procedure: Radiation Therapy||Phase 1 Phase 2|
This is a Phase I-II, open-label, dose-escalation study in subjects with advanced head or neck cancer. Subjects will receive daily ZD1839 during a course of standard radiation therapy accompanied by cisplatin.
Subjects are adults with Stage III-IV squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, or hypopharynx, who are in medically stable condition, with an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of £ 1, stable hepatic and bone marrow function, and a life expectancy of at least 6 months. Subjects should have no previous cancer history (with the exception of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or cervical cancer in situ) and no prior treatment with radiation, chemotherapy, or definitive surgical therapy. Subjects in the Phase II portion of the trial must have measurable disease as defined by RECIST criteria.

- To explore whether the addition of ZD1839 to standard treatment of unresectable head and neck cancers (i.e., cisplatin and radiation therapy) improves the clinical complete response rate (as measured by RECIST criteria).
- To determine the time to disease progression, duration of response, and 2?year disease-free survival in subjects with unresectable tumors of the head and neck after combined therapy with ZD1839, cisplatin, and radiation.
- To determine the toxicities, and recovery from toxicities, of combined therapy with ZD1839, cisplatin, and radiation therapy.
- To determine dose-limiting toxicity as well as the recommended Phase II dose of ZD1839 given concurrently with cisplatin and radiation.
