|Official Title:||A Phase II Organ Preservation Trial Using Cetuximab and Radiation Therapy in Advanced Laryngeal Cancer Patients Who Have Responded to One Cycle of Induction Chemotherapy With Taxotere, Cisplatin, 5-Fluorouracil (TPF), and Cetuximab|
|Study Start Date :||August 2007|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||July 2008|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||October 2010|
Patients will undergo induction chemotherapy with (TPF): Docetaxel (Taxotere) 75 mg/m2 and cisplatin 100 mg/m2 on day 1, and 5-FU 750 mg/m2 days 1-4.
On day 20 patients will receive a single dose of cetuximab (C-225) 400 mg/m2.
Depending upon disease response, patients will undergo salvage laryngectomy followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
1. Day 1: 100 mg/m2, administered as an i.v. infusion will run over one hour. 2. Day #23: Subjects with a < 50% response (NR) to induction chemotherapy will undergo salvage laryngectomy followed by RT. Cisplatin will be added to radiation for patients whose surgical pathology reveals high-risk features (i.e. extracapsular spread, > 2 positive lymph nodes, perineural invasion, or positive margins). Cisplatin will either be dosed a 100 mg/m2 every 21 days or 40 mg/m2 weekly at the discretion of the prescribing physician.

1. Cetuximab will be administered at 400 mg/m2 on Day 20 (2 hour administration). 2. Cetuximab will be administered in combination with radiation therapy to those subjects who had a Partial or Complete response after the first cycle of the chemotherapy regimen is administered. The dosage for these administrations is 250 mg/m2 over sixty minutes and it will be administered for six weeks.
5-FU will be administered 750 mg/m2 in 0.9% normal saline as a 24-hour continuous infusion, days #1-4.
75 mg/m2 by I.V. over one hour on Day # 1 only
Other Name: Taxotere®
- Percentage of Patients Achieving Histologic Complete Response [ Time Frame: 3 years ]The proportion of patients treated with radiation+cetuximab achieving histologic CR will be estimated, along with 95% exact confidence intervals. Histologic Complete Response (CR) will be defined as primary tumors exhibiting a clinical CR or at least a 90% PR (Partial Response) along with a negative post-treatment biopsy.
- The Difference, From Baseline, in EGFR, for Tumor Biopsies Taken After the Administration of Cetuximab Following TPF. [ Time Frame: Day 23 ]To determine tumor EGFR degradation, as well as other markers of down-stream EGFR inhibition, observed in tumor biopsies taken shortly after the administration of cetuximab following TPF, compared with pre-treatment biopsies.
- The Change in Overall Quality of Life Score During Radiation Therapy and at 6, 12, and 24 Months Post Treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]To evaluate the quality of life (QOL).
- Overall Survival Time [ Time Frame: 3 years ]To determine the overall survival rates compared to the overall survival rates of historical controls.
- The Number of Patients That Experience Grade 3 and 4 Mucositis or Dysphagia [ Time Frame: 3 years. ]To determine and compare toxicities, most notably mucositis and dysphagia, in patients on this treatment regimen as compared to historical controls.
