Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Median progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Median overall survival [ Time Frame: 1.5 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: July 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: S-1 plus oxaliplatin
S-1 60 mg BID at day 1-14 Oxaliplatin 100 mg/m2 at day 1 Frequence of cycles: every 3 weeks for 6 cycles
Drug: S-1 plus oxaliplatin
S-1 60 mg BID at day 1-14 Oxaliplatin 100 mg/m2 at day 1 Frequence of cycles: every 3 weeks
Other Names:
  • S-1
  • Oxaliplatin

Detailed Description:
The treatment option in patients with platinum-resistant relapsed or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma is limited. Previous studies showed that both S-1 and oxaliplatin were effective in head and neck cancer. Moreover, SOX (S-1 plus oxaliplatin) was proved to be tolerable in advanced stage gastric cancer. Therefore, we aim to evaluate this regimen in salvage setting of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
