Brief Summary:
A mutilpe-center, open-label, Phase II clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of HLX10 in combination with HLX07 in patients with advanced advanced head and neck tumors

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Drug: Experimental: Stage 1L: HLX10 Plus HLX07 Drug: Experimental: Stage 1H: HLX10 Plus HLX07 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an open label study. Sample size recommendations for this phase II study are determined according to Simon's two-stage Optimal design.

In the first stage, 13 patients will be accrued. The patients will receive 3 mg/kg of HLX10 every two weeks infusion combined with 600 mg HLX07 weekly (stage 1L). These patients will be assessed for treatment response after 8 weeks of first infusion of study drugs. If there are 3 or fewer responsive patients in these 13 patients, additional 13 patients will be accrued. These additional 13 patients will receive 3 mg/kg of HLX10 every two weeks infusion combined with 800 mg HLX07 weekly (Stage 1H). If 3 or fewer responses after eight weeks treatment noted in these 13 patients in stage 1H, the trial will be stopped.

If 4 or more patients are responsive to therapy in stage 1, the trial will be continued to stage 2, 30 additional patients will be accrued to reach a total of 43 patients. These additional 30 patients will receive the same dose of regimen as the prior patients.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Eligible patients must be 18 years of age or older or per local regulation AND younger than 80 years old age.
  2. Patients with histologically-proven recurrent (not amenable to locally curative treatment options) or metastatic, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck with previously failed platinum-based chemotherapy and PD-L1 expression (combined positive score ≥ 1) as determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC) stain. (Patient must be able to provide tissue for PD-L1 biomarker analysis from a core or excisional biopsy; fine needle aspirate is not sufficient.: A newly obtained biopsy; within 90 days prior to start of study treatment; is preferred but an archival sample is acceptable.)
  3. Lesion must be measurable based on RECIST, version 1.1.
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of ≤ 1 at the time of study entry.
  5. Able to provide informed consent.
  6. A life expectancy longer than three months.
  7. Adequate hematologic functions, as defined by: absolute neutrophil counts (ANC) ≥ 1500/mm3; a hemoglobin (Hb) level ≥ 9 gm/dL; a platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm3.
  8. Adequate hepatic function defined by: a total bilirubin level ≤ 1.5x of upper limit of normal (ULN); aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) levels ≤ 2.5 x of ULN or ≤ 5x of ULN in known hepatic metastases.
  9. Adequate renal function, as defined by the creatinine clearance rate ≥ 50 mL/minute calculated using Cockcroft-Gault formula. In patient with extreme body weight (body mass index [BMI] < 18.5 or > 30), estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ≥ 50mL/min calculated using Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formula is acceptable.
