  • Have a plan to receive a continuous course of conventional external beam irradiation delivered by intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) as single daily fractions of 2.0 to 2.2 Gy, with a cumulative radiation dose between 55 and 72 Gy.
  • Have a plan to receive a standard cisplatin CT regimen administered tri-weekly (80 to 100 mg/m2, on Days 0, 21, and 42) or weekly (30 to 40 mg/m2) or a standard carboplatin regimen administered weekly (100 mg/m2)
  • Have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 1
  • CRP < 80 mg/L
  • Have adequate hematopoietic, hepatic, and renal function at the screening visit

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Tumor of the lips, sinuses, salivary glands, nasopharynx or unknown primary tumor
  • Metastatic disease (M1) Stage IV C
  • Any prior history of head and neck cancer
  • Prior radiation to the head and neck
  • Have had a major surgical procedure, other than for HNC, or significant traumatic injury within 4 weeks prior to the initiation of RT; or anticipation of need for a major surgical procedure during the clinical trial
