Docetaxel and S-1 Followed By Radiation Therapy and Low-Dose Cisplatin in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Head and Neck Cancer
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, S-1, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) together with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving docetaxel and S-1 together with radiation therapy and low-dose cisplatin works in treating patients with stage III or stage IV head and neck cancer.
Head and Neck Cancer
Drug: tegafur-gimeracil-oteracil potassium
Radiation: radiation therapy
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase ll Trial of Induction Docetaxel and S-1 Followed by Concomitant Radiotherapy With Low-dose Daily Cisplatin in Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer|
- Objective response rate (complete or partial response) as assessed by RECIST criteria
- Progression-free survival
- Overall survival
- Toxicity as assessed by NCI CTCAE v3.0 criteria
|Study Start Date:||November 2006|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||November 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To assess the response rate in patients with stage III or IV head and neck cancer treated with induction therapy comprising docetaxel and S-1 followed by radiotherapy and low-dose cisplatin.
- To assess the effect of this regimen on survival and locoregional and systemic control rates in these patients.
- Induction chemotherapy: Patients receive oral S-1 twice daily on days 1-14 and docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
- Chemoradiotherapy: Patients receive low-dose cisplatin IV once daily and undergo radiotherapy 5 days a week for 7 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed periodically for 18 months.
