NCT ID: NCT02145312 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Head and Neck

An Open Label, Single Arm, Multicenter Phase II Study of BYL719 in Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Head and Neck Who Failed to Respond to Platinum-based Therapy.

Start date: October 2016
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

One promising approach to the treatment of cancer is inhibition or modulating the crucial signal transduction pathway of PI3K-Akt-mTOR. Several PI3K inhibitors are being tested in the clinical trials for cancer treatment but not for the head and neck cancer yet. BYL719 is an alpha specific I PI3K inhibitor. It showed significant, concentration dependent cell growth inhibition and induction of apoptosis. We suggest multicenter single arm phase II study to determine anti-tumor effects of BYL719 in patients with recurrent and/or metastatic SCCHN who failed to prior chemotherapy regimens. Enrollment will be done in 5 or more clinical trial centers in Korea. Primary objective is to evaluate disease control rate (DCR) at 8 weeks of BYL719, and the efficacy will be evaluated by the investigators analysis based on RECIST version 1.1.
