I. To determine the 12-week progression-free survival rate and the objective response rate, as measured by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria, in patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck treated with dasatinib.
I. To define metabolic response rate by positron emission tomography (PET) scan at 0, 8, and 12 weeks.
II. To define overall survival distribution from initiation of dasatinib. III. To define duration of response. IV. To determine if there is a correlation between clinical benefit from dasatinib (defined as disease response or stabilization) and pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics (phosphorylated Src [pSrc] expression in platelets), or changes in serum levels of cytokines, growth factors, and growth factor receptors relevant to the Src signaling pathway.
V. To examine the relationship between clinical benefit and mammary tumor and squamous cell carcinoma-associated protein (EMS1) gene amplification and cortactin expression levels in tumor tissue prior to therapy and the modulation of cortactin levels by treatment.
VI. To compare the effects of dasatinib on apoptosis by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL) assay in tumor tissues comparing pre- and post-treatment biopsies.
VII. To assess the tolerability of dasatinib in this patient population. VIII. To describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile and relative bioavailability of dasatinib suspension in patients receiving the drug through percutaneous gastrostomy tube.
IX. To descriptively assess safety, toxicity, and efficacy of dasatinib crushed and administered by feeding tube.
Patients receive dasatinib orally (PO) or via percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) tube twice daily (BID). Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for at least 4 weeks.

|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Phase 2 Study of Dasatinib in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date :||July 2007|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||February 2010|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||February 2010|
Experimental: Treatment (dasatinib)
Patients receive dasatinib PO or via PEG tube BID. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Given PO or via PEG tube
Procedure: pharmacological study
Other Name: pharmacological studies
Procedure: laboratory biomarker analysis
- Number of Participants With Progression-free Survival at 12-weeks [ Time Frame: At 12-weeks ]Progression-free survival (PFS) is defined as stable disease or better. Participants who have received at least one dose of dasatinib and who die or leave the study before 12 weeks will be counted as having progressive disease.

- Other anti-neoplastic agents, i.e., cytotoxic chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy or investigational therapy, used to treat the primary disease will not be allowed during the study; local radiation (excluding radiotherapy to the target lesion) for supportive reasons involving a small radiation field may be allowed
- Patient has a history of uncontrolled or severe medical disease which could compromise participation in the study such as uncontrolled diabetes (fasting blood glucose > 200 mg/dl), uncontrolled hypertension (systolic blood pressure [BP] > 160 or diastolic BP > 100 mmHg), severe infection (bacterial infection requiring intravenous [IV] antibiotics or human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]), angina at rest, congestive heart failure New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV, ventricular arrhythmias requiring therapy, myocardial infarction within 6 months, > grade 2 neuropathy
