Title: A Phase IB/II Study With Azacitidine, Durvalumab, and Tremelimumab in Recurrent and/or Metastatic Head and Neck Cancer Patients1

Principal Investigators: Sara Pai, MD, PhD, and Lori Wirth, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston

Description: For this non-randomized, open label, phase 1b/2 study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03019003), researchers are evaluating the dose, safety, and efficacy of a combination therapy containing azacitidine, durvalumab (MEDI4736), and tremelimumab for patients with metastatic/recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck who progress on anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-CTLA-4 monotherapy.

For the study's phase 1b part, the primary outcome is the biologically effective dose of azacitidine; the secondary outcome is treatment-related adverse events.

For the phase 2 part, the primary outcome is progression-free survival; the secondary outcomes are best overall response rate and overall survival.
