Phase II, randomised, controlled, non comparative study with 2 parallel groups:
- Arm A: patients will receive induction chemotherapy (cisplatin and docetaxel) followed by a concomitant radio-chemotherapy including 2 cycles of cisplatin and vinorelbine associated with a weekly cetuximab infusion during the radiotherapy.
- Arm B: patients will receive induction chemotherapy (cisplatin and docetaxel) followed by a concomitant radio-chemothérapy including 2 cycles of cisplatin and etoposide associated with a weekly cetuximab infusion during the radiotherapy.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of the study is to determine if U.S. manufactured cetuximab can be safely used for the treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in combination with cisplatin and vinorelbine.
The purpose of the study is to determine in patients with Non Small Cell Lung Cancer refractory to previous chemotherapy whether concomitant treatment with cetuximab and pemetrexed improve...
This phase two trial will determine the tumor response rate at the primary site and at involved regional nodes to two cycles of an IC regimen of weekly Abraxane and cetuximab given in comb...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the addition of a unique targeted agent called Cetuximab (also known as "C225" and "Erbitux") can increase the effectiveness of standard treatm...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that treatment with avelumab in combination with RT-cetuximab is superior to standard of care (SOC) cisplatin-RT and/or to SOC RT-cetuximab alon...
Cisplatin and cetuximab, an anti‑epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) monoclonal humanized antibody, have been used for treatment of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). It has been demonstr...
Overexpression and activation of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) have been linked to poor prognosis in several human cancers. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody against EGFR, that is used ...
Dual Targeting of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor and HER3 by MEHD7945A as Monotherapy or in Combination with Cisplatin Partially Overcomes Cetuximab Resistance in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cell Lines.
Aberrant signaling of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) plays a crucial role in the tumorigenesis of many cancer types, including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), making it a c...
The optimal regimen of chemotherapy and re-irradiation (re-XRT) for recurrent head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is controversial. We report the final outcomes of a multi-center Phase II tr...
Proteomic approaches using liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) without an immunopurification technique have not been applied to the determination of serum cetuximab. T...
A chimeric monoclonal antibody that functions as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT through its binding to the EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR, where it prevents the binding and signaling action of cell growth and survival factors.
A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
