Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the overall response rate (ORR) of patients with locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) treated with ARQ 501.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the progression-free survival (PFS) at six months for those patients treated with ARQ 501.To further characterize the safety ARQ 501.
