Clinical Trial Summary

Evaluation of health-related quality of life of head and neck cancer patients undergoing immunotherapy

Clinical Trial Description

Introduction: The treatment of head and neck neoplasms, as well as the evolution of the disease, can affect a variety of body functions, including breathing, swallowing and speech, with great potential to cause various physical, emotional, and social problems to the patient, leading to considerable impairment of their quality of life. Several instruments were developed to measure this variable. Such evaluation is currently considered fundamental to report therapeutic results, but there is no consensus regarding the instrument to be employed. The University of Washington questionnaire has been the most widely used so far. EORTC (European Organization for Cancer Research and Treatment) recently published a new questionnaire specifically for patients treated for head and neck cancer (EORTC QLQ-H & N43), already validated in Portuguese for Brazil. Objectives: The aim of this prospective and multi-institutional study is to evaluate the quality of life of patients with metastatic head and neck cancer undergoing immunotherapy in different regions of Brazil. Other endpoints will also be evaluated such as disease-free survival and overall survival. Procedures: EORTC QLQ-30 and EORTC QLQ-H & N43 questionnaires, validated in Portuguese for Brazil, will be applied to all patients with metastatic head and neck neoplasms undergoing immunotherapy at participating institutions. These will be evaluated before the beginning of the treatment and then every 2 months, for an estimated period of 2 years or until death or on demand, in case of symptomatology that justifies it. ;
