Brief Summary:
This is a biomarker-driven trial that will enroll patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck progressing after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy. Based on potential biomarkers and molecular alterations identified in the biopsy from the central platform, patients will be allocated in different cohorts. There will be biomarker-positive patient cohorts and immunotherapy cohorts.

Criteria

General Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed recurrent and/or metastatic SCCHN of the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx or larynx not amenable to curative treatment.
  • At least one measurable lesion by MRI or CT-scan according to RECIST 1.1, evaluated within 2 weeks prior to registration. Such lesion must not have been previously irradiated; if the measurable lesion(s) have been irradiated, clear progression must be documented.
  • Progressive disease after first line platinum-based chemotherapy with or without cetuximab given as palliative treatment or progressive disease within 1 year if platinum-based chemotherapy was given as a part of the multimodal curative treatment. Patients pre-treated with anti-PD1/anti-PDL1 are allowed.
  • ECOG performance status 0 -1 with a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
  • Tumor core biopsy from any accessible tumor at the recurrent or metastatic site available for central testing.
  • Patients must have adequate organ function, evaluated within 14 days prior to cohort allocation:
  • Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/100 ml,
  • Neutrophils ≥ 1,500/mm3,
  • Platelets ≥ 100,000/mm3,
  • Total bilirubin <1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) (< 3 times the upper limit of normal for Gilbert's disease),
  • Serum ALT and AST ≤ 2.5 x ULN,
  • Adequate renal function measured by:
  • Estimated creatinine clearance ≥45ml using Cockcroft and Gault formula or Creatinine ≤ 1.5 ULN
  • International Normalized Ratio (INR) or Prothrombin Time (PT) must be within the normal ranges as per institution's standard. A window of 5% is allowed.
  • Patients receiving anticoagulant therapy are allowed to participate as long as the PT/INR values are within the expected target range of their current dose.

Participant must have recovered from any surgical procedure. Curative radiation therapy (60-70 Gy) within 6 weeks of cohort allocation. Palliative radiation therapy (e.g. 8 Gy on a painful lesion) will be allowed.
  • Known untreated and uncontrolled brain metastases or leptomeningeal carcinomatosis.
  • Known diagnosis of immune deficiency or a positive serology of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (HIV 1/2 antibodies).
  • Active Hepatitis B (e.g., HBsAg reactive) or Hepatitis C (e.g., HCV RNA [qualitative] is detected) or pre-existing liver cirrhosis.
  • Known pre-existing interstitial lung disease (ILD). Bronchoemphysema is not considered as ILD.
  • Other uncontrolled active illnesses or nonmalignant systemic disease (examples include, but are not limited to active infections requiring antibiotics, bleeding disorders, uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmia, uncontrolled major seizure disorder, unstable spinal cord compression, superior vena cava syndrome …).
  • Any psychiatric, psychological, familial, sociological or geographical condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and follow-up schedule.
