Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as cetuximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective with cisplatin or cetuximab in treating oropharyngeal cancer.

PURPOSE: This phase III trial is studying radiation therapy with cisplatin or cetuximab to see how well it works in treating patients with oropharyngeal cancer.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Head and Neck Cancer Precancerous Condition Biological: cetuximab Drug: cisplatin Radiation: IMRT Phase 3

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To determine whether substitution of cisplatin with cetuximab will result in comparable 5-year overall survival.

Secondary

  • To monitor and compare progression-free survival for "safety".
  • To compare patterns of failure (locoregional vs distant).
  • To compare acute toxicity profiles (and overall toxicity burden).
  • To compare overall quality of life (QOL) short-term (< 6 months) and long-term (2 years).
  • To compare QOL Swallowing Domains short-term and long-term.
  • To compare clinician-reported versus patient-reported CTCAE toxicity events.
  • To explore differences in the cost effectiveness of cetuximab as compared to cisplatin.
  • To explore differences in work status and time to return to work.
  • To compare patient-reported changes in hearing.
  • To compare CTCAE v. 4 late toxicity at 1, 2, and 5 years.
  • To evaluate the effect of tobacco exposure (and other exposures) as measured by standardized computer-assisted self interview (CASI) on overall survival and progression-free survival.
  • To pilot CASI collection of patient reported outcomes in a cooperative group setting.
  • To determine whether specific molecular profiles are associated with overall or progression-free survival.
  • To investigate associations between changes in serum biomarkers or human papilloma virus (HPV)-specific cellular immune responses measured at baseline and three months with overall or progression-free survival.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to T stage (T1-2 vs T 3-4), N stage (N0-2a vs N2b-3), Zubrod performance status (0 vs 1), and smoking history (≤ 10 pack-years vs > 10 pack-years). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

Patients may complete quality-of-life questionnaires and risk factors for head and neck cancer surveys at baseline, periodically during study, and at follow-up for 1 year.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up at 1-3 months, every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From randomization to last follow-up. Analysis was to occur after 180 deaths were reported. Analysis occurred after 133 deaths were reported. Maximum follow-up at time of analysis was 6.5 years. ]
    An event for overall survival is death due to any cause. Survival time is defined as time from randomization to the date of death or last known follow-up (censored). Rates are estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method. The protocol endpoint is hazard ratio, which is reported in the statistical analysis results. Five-year rate is reported simply as summary data; it is not the outcome measure.

    An event for progression-free survival is local, regional, or distant disease progression or death due to any cause. Progression-free survival time is defined as time from randomization to the date of progression/death or last known follow-up (censored). Rates are estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method. The protocol endpoint is the distribution of progression-free survival times, for which the hazard ratio is reported in the statistical analysis results. Five-year rate is reported simply as summary data; it is not the outcome measure.

  2. Time to Local-regional Failure [ Time Frame: From randomization to last follow-up. Analysis was to occur after 180 deaths were reported. Analysis occurred after 133 deaths were reported. Maximum follow-up at time of analysis was 6.5 years. ]
    Failure for local-regional failure endpoint was defined as local or regional progression, salvage surgery of the primary tumor with tumor present/unknown, salvage neck dissection with tumor present/unknown > 20 weeks after the end of radiation therapy, death due to study cancer without documented progression, or death due to unknown causes without documented progression; distant metastasis and death due to other causes were considered competing risks. Local-regional failure time is defined as time from randomization to the date of progression/death or last known follow-up (censored). Rates are estimated by the cumulative incidence method. The protocol endpoint is the distribution of local-regional failure times, for which the hazard ratio is reported in the statistical analysis results. Five-year rate is reported simply as summary data; it is not the outcome measure.

    Failure for distant metastasis endpoint was defined as distant progression; local-regional failure and death due to any cause were considered competing risks. Distant metastasis time is defined as time from randomization to the date of progression/death or last known follow-up (censored). Rates are estimated by the cumulative incidence method. The protocol endpoint is the distribution of distant metastasis times, for which the hazard ratio is reported in the statistical analysis results. Five-year rate is reported simply as summary data; it is not the outcome measure.

  4. Time to Secondary Primary Cancer [ Time Frame: From randomization to last follow-up. Analysis was to occur after 180 deaths were reported. Analysis occurred after 133 deaths were reported. Maximum follow-up at time of analysis was 6.5 years. ]
    Failure for second primary endpoint was defined as reporting of a new primary cancer; death due to any cause was considered a competing risk. Second primary time is defined as time from randomization to the date of second primary or last known follow-up (censored). Rates are estimated by the cumulative incidence method. The protocol endpoint is the distribution of second primary cancer times, for which the hazard ratio is reported in the statistical analysis results. Five-year rate is reported simply as summary data; it is not the outcome measure.

  5. Distribution of First Progression Events [ Time Frame: From randomization to last follow-up. Analysis was to occur after 180 deaths were reported. Analysis occurred after 133 deaths were reported. Maximum follow-up at time of analysis was 6.5 years. ]

  13. Patients who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive but have no prior acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) -defining illness and have CD4 cells of at least 350/mm3 are eligible. Patient HIV status must be known prior to registration. Patients must not be sero-positive for Hepatitis B (Hepatitis B surface antigen positive or anti-hepatitis B core antigen positive) or sero-positive for Hepatitis C (anti-Hepatitis C antibody positive). However, patients who are immune to hepatitis B (anti-Hepatitis B surface antibody positive) are eligible (e.g. patients immunized against hepatitis B). HIV-positive patients must not have multi-drug resistant HIV infection or other concurrent AIDS-defining conditions.

    • 9.6 Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) based upon current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definition with immune compromise greater than that noted in Section 3.1.13; note, however, that HIV testing is not required for entry into this protocol. The need to exclude patients with AIDS from this protocol is necessary because the treatments involved in this protocol may be significantly immunosuppressive. Protocol-specific requirements may also exclude immuno-compromised patients.
  10. Pregnancy or women of childbearing potential and men who are sexually active and not willing/able to use medically acceptable forms of contraception; this exclusion is necessary because the treatment involved in this study may be significantly teratogenic.
  11. Prior allergic reaction to cisplatin or cetuximab;
  12. Prior cetuximab or other anti-EGFR therapy.
