Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The CCTG HN.9 study has been centrally activated in Canada, as of January 31.

HN.9  is a Randomized Phase II Study of Cisplatin plus Radiotherapy versus Durvalumab plus Radiotherapy followed by Adjuvant Durvalumab versus Durvalumab plus Radiotherapy followed by Adjuvant Tremelimumab and Durvalumab in Intermediate Risk HPV-Positive Locoregionally Advanced Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Cancer (LA-OSCC), 2018.

Eligibility: 1) Histologically and/or cytologically confirmed (primary lesion or regional lymph nodes) squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx (OSCC) which is locoregionally advanced, intermediate risk and non-metastatic (M0) as defined by the following: - T1-2 N2b (smoking >10 pack-years) - T3 N0-N2b (smoking >10 pack-years) - T1-3 N2c (any smoking history) 2) Human papillomavirus (HPV)-related as determined by positive p16 immunohistochemical staining on any tumoural specimens. 3) Performance status of 0 or 1. 4) > 18 years of age. 5) Patient must consent to release of tumour tissue, blood, saliva and throat swab samples for correlative studies. 6) Adequate normal organ and marrow function.

Objectives: Primary: To estimate the efficacy (in terms of event-free survival) of 3 treatment Arms: (A) radiotherapy (RT) and cisplatin; (B) RT and durvalumab followed by adjuvant durvalumab; and (C) RT and durvalumab followed by adjuvant durvalumab and tremelimumab in patients with intermediate risk, HPV-positive, locally advanced oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (LA-OSCC). Secondary: 1) To assess differences between arms in change in FACT-HN score from baseline to 36 months post-RT; 2) To estimate and describe the following in each of the 3 treatment arms: Locoregional control; Distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS); OS; Toxicity; Incidence of second cancer; Dysphagia; PRO-CTCAE Radiation related late toxicity; Cost effectiveness; Cost utility; and lost productivity. Tertiary: 1) Correlative Studies; 2) Event-free survival as defined by iRECIST.
