Brief Summary:
This phase II/III compares the standard therapy (chemotherapy plus cetuximab) versus adding bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy, versus combination of just bevacizumab and atezolizumab in treating patients with head and neck cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic or advanced stage) or has come back after prior treatment (recurrent). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Bevacizumab is in a class of medications called antiangiogenic agents. It works by stopping the formation of blood vessels that bring oxygen and nutrients to tumor. This may slow the growth and spread of tumor. Cetuximab is in a class of medications called monoclonal antibodies. It binds to a protein called EGFR, which is found on some types of cancer cells. This may help keep cancer cells from growing. Cisplatin and carboplatin are in a class of chemotherapy medications known as platinum-containing compounds. They work by killing, stopping, or slowing the growth of cancer cells. Docetaxel is in a class of chemotherapy medications called taxanes. It stops cancer cells from growing and dividing and may kill them. The addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy or combination therapy with bevacizumab and atezolizumab may be better than standard chemotherapy plus cetuximab in treating patients with recurrent/metastatic head and neck cancers.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival (PFS) (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Time from treatment initiation until disease progression or death, assessed up to 5 years from randomization ]
  2. Overall survival (OS) (Phase III) [ Time Frame: Time from treatment initiation until death from any cause, assessed up to 5 years from randomization ]
    Will be compared using a stratified log rank test.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) in the subset of patients with high PD-L1 expression (phase III) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years from randomization ]
    The interaction of PD-L1 by treatment will also be evaluated in a Cox proportional hazards model.

  2. Incidence of adverse events (phase III) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after completion of treatment ]
  3. Correlation between 18F-FDG PET and CT neck imaging biomarkers [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years from randomization ]
    The two-sample t-test will be used to compare the difference of baseline 18F -FDG PET /CT imaging biomarkers (SUVmax, MTV, TLG, tumor volume) between low and high expression of PD-L1.

  4. Prediction of treatment response [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 12 weeks ]
    Determined by 18FDG-PET/CT and CT neck imaging biomarkers. To determine if 18FDG-PET/CT and CT neck imaging biomarkers at baseline will predict treatment response at nine to twelve weeks post-treatment, PFS, and OS Logistic regression model will be fit to assess the association of the 18F -FDG PET /CT imaging biomarkers (e.g., SUVmax, MTV, TLG, tumor heterogeneity, tumor volume) with binary treatment response at 9-12 weeks post treatment. Cox proportional hazards models will be fit to assess the association of 18F -FDG PET /CT imaging biomarkers with time-to-event outcomes (PFS or OS).


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Correlation between 18F-FDG PET and CT neck radiomics features and expression of PD-L1 expression [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years from randomization ]
    The imaging textural features from radiomics analysis will be associated with the dichotomized PD-L1 expressions. First, proper transformation will be applied to the textural features as needed to address the distribution skewness. Second, Pearson or Spearman rank correlations will be calculated between all pairs of textural features to identify highly correlated features. Third, to address overfitting and high collinearity, machine learning techniques (e.g., LASSO or XGBoost) will be employed for feature selection during the association analysis with PD-L1 expressions.

Patients who developed grade 3 endocrinopathies but are now stable on hormone supplementation and/or a daily prednisone dose of =< 10 mg (or equivalent doses of another glucocorticoid), will be permitted on this trial
  • Patient must not have a history of PD-1 inhibitor-induced hyper-progression, defined as 100% increase in tumor burden within 8 weeks (or 50% within 4 weeks) of initiating ICI and associated with clinical deterioration
  • Patient must not have any of the following criteria due to the possibility of increased risk for tumor bleeding with bevacizumab therapy:

    • Prior carotid bleeding,
    • Tumors that invade major vessels (e.g., the carotid) as shown unequivocally by imaging studies,
    • Central (e.g., within 2 cm from the hilum) lung metastases that are cavitary as shown unequivocally by imaging studies,

The use of direct oral anticoagulant therapies such as dabigatran (Pradaxa) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto) is not allowed while on study due to bleeding risk

If possible, it is recommended to separate study drug administration from vaccine administration by about a week (primarily, in order to minimize an overlap of adverse events
  • Patient must not be pregnant or breast-feeding due to the potential harm to an unborn fetus and possible risk for adverse events in nursing infants with the treatment regimens being used.

    • All patients of childbearing potential must have a blood test or urine study within 14 days prior to randomization to rule out pregnancy.

  • Patient must not receive any other chemotherapy, immunotherapy, antitumor hormonal therapy (excluding contraceptives and replacement steroids), radiation therapy, or experimental medications while on protocol treatment. Symptomatic lesions (e.g., bone metastases or metastases causing nerve impingement) amenable to palliative radiotherapy should be treated prior to randomization and patients must be recovered from the effects of radiation (there is no required minimum recovery period
  • Patient must not have had a surgical procedure (including open biopsy, surgical resection, wound revision, or any other major surgery involving entry into a body cavity) or significant traumatic injury within 28 days prior to randomization, or anticipation of need for major surgical procedure while on protocol treatment
