Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mutation rates of HRAS and PIK3CA [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Enrollment: 70
Actual Study Start Date: November 21, 2011
Study Completion Date: January 1, 2012
Primary Completion Date: January 1, 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To determine the mutation rates of HRAS and PIK3CA in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) who were treated with cisplatin/placebo and cisplatin/cetuximab on protocol ECOG-E5397.
  • To determine the association between HRAS or PIK3CA mutation status and clinical benefits (i.e., response, progression-free survival, and overall survival) in patients treated with cisplatin/cetuximab compared with those receiving cisplatin/placebo on protocol ECOG-E5397.

OUTLINE: DNA is isolated from one unstained slide per patient. The mutations in HRAS and PIK3CA are determined using BEAMING technology.
