Official Title

Combined Treatment of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma With Cetuximab and IMRT Plus C12 Heavy Ion Boost - ACCEPT - (ACC, Erbitux, and Particle Therapy); Phase I/II Feasibility Study

Brief Summary

      The ACCEPT (A(denoid) c(ystic) c(arcinoma), E(rbitux, and) p(article) t(herapy))-trial is a
      prospective, monocentric phase I/II feasibility trial evaluating toxicity and efficacy in the
      combined treatment of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and carbon ion (C12) boost
      with the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibody cetuximab. The primary objective of
      the study is to explore the toxicity of the combined modality regimen consisting of heavy ion
      therapy / IMRT and EGFR antibody immunotherapy, by assessing the rate of patients with
      mucositis or any other toxicity of severity grade 3 or 4 according to NCI CTCAE V. 4.
      Secondary endpoints include local control, distant control, overall disease-free survival,
      overall survival
    

Detailed Description

      Treatment with novel radiotherapeutic technologies could increase local control in adenoid
      cystic carcinoma of the head and neck. Especially combined treatment with intensity-modulated
      radiation therapy and heavy ion (C12) boost to the primary tumor or previous tumor bed could
      be established as the treatment of choice in this disease.

      Unfortunately, therapeutic results in the treatment of adenoid cystic carcinoma are still
      hampered by the occurrence of distant metastases (predominantly in the lungs) which, though
      progressing comparatively slowly, still limit the patient's life expectancy. Most adenoid
      cystic carcinomas (> 80%) though, exhibit over-expression of EGFR receptors and hence provide
      an approach for systemic treatment. In this prospective phase II trial, the application of
      the EGFR antibody cetuximab will be evaluated in combination with the established treatment
      of intensity-modulated radiation therapy plus C12 heavy ion boost.

      The trial aims at evaluation of toxicity and feasibility of the combined treatment, as
      primary endpoint, as well as local control and disease-free survival as secondary endpoints.
