Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients with cancer may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors predict how patients will respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at blood sample analysis in predicting overall survival in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Head and Neck Cancer Other: matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To validate the mass spectrometry profile that is predictive of survival benefit in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma treated with EGFR inhibitors.

OUTLINE: Plasma and serum samples are analyzed by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry and classified according to prognosis ("good" vs "poor") using a previously developed predictive algorithm.
