Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of investigational medical products (MEDI4736 monotherapy, tremelimumab monotherapy, and MEDI4736 + tremelimumab combination therapy) in the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic carcinoma of the head and neck who have progressed during or after treatment with a platinum containing regimen for recurrent/metastatic disease.

Detailed Description

      This is a randomized, open-label, multi-center, global, Phase II study to determine the
      efficacy and safety of MEDI4736 + tremelimumab combination therapy, MEDI4736 monotherapy and
      tremelimumab monotherapy in the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic
      PD-L1-negative squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) who have progressed
      during or after treatment with only 1 systemic palliative regimen for recurrent or metastatic
      disease, that must have contained a platinum agent.

      Patients will be randomized in a stratified manner according to prognostic factors, including
      human papillomavirus (HPV) status and smoking status to achieve a balance between treatments
      for each of the factors. Patients will be randomized in a 1:1:2 fashion to receive MEDI4736
      monotherapy, tremelimumab monotherapy, or MEDI4736 + tremelimumab combination.

      All treatments will be administered beginning on Day 0 for 12 months or until confirmed
      progression of disease; unless, in the Investigator's opinion, the patient continues to
      receive benefit from the treatment), initiation of alternative cancer therapy, unacceptable
      toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or another discontinuation criterion is met. Patients with
      confirmed progression of disease who, in the Investigator's opinion, continue to receive
      benefit from their assigned investigational product and who meet the criteria for treatment
      in the setting of progression of disease may continue to receive their assigned
      investigational product treatment for a maximum of 12 months after consultation with the
      Sponsor and at the Investigator's discretion. The monotherapy arms (tremelimumab and
      MEDI4736) should be discontinued if there is confirmed progression of disease following a
      previous response in target lesions (complete response or partial response).

      Tumor assessments will be performed using computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.
      Efficacy for all patients will be assessed by objective tumor assessments every 8 weeks (q8w)
      for the first 48 weeks (relative to the date of the first infusion) then q12w in patients who
      have disease control after 12 months until confirmed objective disease progression.

      Following completion or discontinuation of treatment, patients will enter a follow-up period.

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:Objective Response Rate at 6 Months
Time Frame:After 6 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Objective response rate, primary analysis, based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1. The number (%) of patients with a response excludes unconfirmed responses

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Best Objective Response
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:The best response a patient has had during their time in the study
Measure:Duration of Response - Participants Remaining in Response
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Participants remaining in response - based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1. An ongoing response was defined as a patient who had documented objective response and was still alive and progression-free at the time of the data cut-off.
Measure:Time to Response
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Time to response in patients with objective response based on BICR assessments according to RECIST 1.1
Measure:Time to Onset of Response From First Dose
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Time to onset of response in patients with objective response based on BICR assessments according to RECIST 1.1
Measure:Disease Control Rate (DCR)
Time Frame:After 6 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Disease control rate (DCR) at 6 months based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1. DCR at 6 months was evaluated using 2 different approaches to the length of stable disease (SD). -Method 1: Patients who had a best objective response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) within 24 weeks or had demonstrated SD for a minimum interval of 24 weeks following randomization. -Method 2: Patients who had a best objective response of CR or PR in the first 24 weeks or who had demonstrated SD for a minimum interval of 16 weeks following randomization.
Measure:Disease Control Rate (DCR)
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Disease control rate (DCR) at 12 months based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1. DCR at 6 months was evaluated using 2 different approaches to the length of stable disease (SD). -Method 1: Patients who had a best objective response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) within 24 weeks or had demonstrated SD for a minimum interval of 24 weeks following randomization. -Method 2: Patients who had a best objective response of CR or PR in the first 24 weeks or who had demonstrated SD for a minimum interval of 16 weeks following randomization.
Measure:Progression-free Survival (PFS)
Time Frame:After 6 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Progression status at 6 months based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1 at time of Progression Free Survival (PFS) analysis. Progression was defined as the time from the data of randomization until the date of objective disease progression or death (by any cause in the absence of progression) regardless of whether the patient withdrew from therapy or received another anti-cancer therapy prior to progression. -Target Lesions, Non Target Lesions and New Lesions are not necessarily mutually exclusive categories. -Progression death refers to death in the absence of RECIST 1.1 progression.
Measure:Progression-free Survival (PFS)
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Progression status at 12 months based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1 at time of Progression Free Survival (PFS) analysis. Progression was defined as the time from the data of randomization until the date of objective disease progression or death (by any cause in the absence of progression) regardless of whether the patient withdrew from therapy or received another anti-cancer therapy prior to progression. -Target Lesions, Non Target Lesions and New Lesions are not necessarily mutually exclusive categories. -Progression death refers to death in the absence of RECIST 1.1 progression.
Measure:Overall Survival
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Survival status at time of overall survival analysis. 'Still in survival follow-up' includes patients known to be alive at data cut-off. 'Terminated prior to death' includes patients with unknown survival status or patients who were lost to follow-up.
Measure:Quality of Life
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Improvement in quality of life was assessed using European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) questionnaires: -The impact of treatment on Health-Related Quality of Life, functioning, and symptoms was evaluated using the EORTC QLQ-C30 v3. -Head and neck cancer-specific symptoms were evaluated using the EORTC QLQ-H&N35. The symptom and QoL/function improvement rate was defined as the number (%) of patients with 2 consecutive assessments at least 14 days apart that showed a clinically meaningful improvement (a decrease from baseline score ≥10 or EORTC QLQ-C30 scales) in that symptom/function from baseline. For QLQ-H&N35A a minimum clinically meaningful change was defined as a change in the score from baseline of >10 for scales/items
Measure:Duration of Response
Time Frame:After 12 months
Safety Issue:
Description:Duration of objective response in patients with objective response based on BICR assessments according to RECIST v1.1. Duration of response was the time from the first documentation of Complete response/Partial response (which was subsequently confirmed) until the date of progression, death, or the last evaluable RECIST assessment for patients that did not progress. An ongoing response was defined as a patient who had documented objective response and was still alive and progression-free at the time of the data cut-off (per RECIST v1.1 as assessed by BICR).
