Summary

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and the best dose of sorafenib tosylate and docetaxel when given together with cisplatin and to see how well they work in treating patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Sorafenib tosylate may also help cisplatin and docetaxel work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Giving sorafenib tosylate, cisplatin, and docetaxel may be an effective treatment for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
Patients receive sorafenib tosylate PO BID on days 1-14 of course 0. Beginning in course 1, patients receive sorafenib tosylate PO BID on days 1-21, docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1, and cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To define progression-free survival of patients with recurrent/metastatic squamous cell carcinoma treated with cisplatin/docetaxel/sorafenib (sorafenib tosylate) (CDS) combination chemotherapy. (Phase II) II. To determine the optimal doses of cisplatin/docetaxel/sorafenib to be used in the phase II portion of the trial. (Phase I) SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine overall survival, response rate, conduct biomarker studies, toxicities. OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of sorafenib tosylate and docetaxel followed by a phase II study. Patients receive sorafenib tosylate orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-14 of course 0.
