|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma||Drug: afatinib Other: placebo||Phase 2|
I. Examine disease-free survival (DFS) given afatinib/placebo adjuvant therapy in patients with viable tumors in lymph nodes after neck dissection for suspected residual disease after concurrent chemoradiation.
I. Evaluate the recurrence rate, recurrence patterns, development of second primary malignancies, overall survival (OS) and toxicity of afatinib/placebo.
II. Evaluate on-target inhibition by afatinib, and determine circulating deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) as a biomarker of afatinib resistance.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM A: Patients receive afatinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28.
ARM B: Patients receive placebo PO QD on days 1-28.
In both Arms, treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 1 year and then every 12 months for 2 years.

|Official Title:||A Randomized Placebo Controlled Phase II Trial of Afatinib (BIBW2992) as Adjuvant Therapy Following Chemoradiation in Patients With Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma at High Risk of Recurrence|
|Study Start Date :||July 2013|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 13, 2015|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2020|
Experimental: Arm A (afatinib)
Patients receive afatinib PO QD on days 1-28.
Other Name: BIBW 2992
Placebo Comparator: Arm B (placebo)
Patients receive placebo PO QD on days 1-28.
- Disease-free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: Assessed every 3 months for patients < 2 years from registration and every 6 months if patient is 2-3 years from registration and every 12 months if patient is 4-5 years from registration ]DFS is defined as the time from randomization to the earlier of disease recurrence, second primary cancer, or death without recurrence.
