Cetuximab With Radiotherapy for Locally Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck in Chinese Subjects
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck|
|Treatment||cetuximab + concomitant boost radiotherapy|
|Start date||February 2009|
|End date||September 2010|
|Trial size||70 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01012258, EMR62241-054|
Primary objective: to assess the antitumor activity and safety profile of cetuximab when given in combination with radiotherapy (RT) for the treatment of locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) in Chinese subjects.
Secondary objective: to assess the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile and immunogenicity of cetuximab in Chinese subjects.
Further objective: to identify for cetuximab potential predictive biomarkers of response and safety.

Best Overall Response (BOR)
time frame: Baseline until the date of first documented progression or discontinuation from the study due to any cause, assessed every 3 months following the 8 weeks after the end of RT visit until the end of trial (EOT) visit
Progression-Free Survival (PFS)
time frame: Baseline up to disease progression or withdrawal or 12 weeks after the last radiotherapy of the last participant
