Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 4 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Determine safety and tolerability of erlotinib and LBH589B and establish a recommended phase II expansion dosing of LBH589B and erlotinib in patients with advanced aerodigestive tract cancers.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: Up to 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DCR: The percentage of patients with advanced or metastatic cancer who have achieved complete response (CR), partial response (PR) and stable disease (SD) to a therapeutic intervention in clinical trials of anticancer agents. CR: is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. PR: is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of longest diameter (LD) of target lesions taking as reference the baseline sum LD. SD: is defined as neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD taking as references the smallest sum LD since the treatment started.

  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) by Cancer Type [ Time Frame: Up to 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progressive Disease (PD) is defined as at least a 20% increase in the sum of LD of target lesions taking as references the smallest sum LD recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions.

  • Overall Survival (OS) by Cancer Type [ Time Frame: Up to 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival (OS) is the duration from date of randomization to date of death from any cause.

Primary Completion Date: August 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dose Escalation Followed by Expansion
Eligible participants were enrolled in a 3+3 dose-escalation design to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of twice weekly panobinostat plus daily erlotinib at 4 planned dose levels (DLs).
Drug: Panobinostat (LBH589)
Panobinostat was taken twice weekly, for 2 out of 3 weeks of each cycle. Each cycle was defined as a 21-day period. Four dose levels of panobinostat in combination with erlotinib were planned: 1) dose level 1 (DL1) = panobinostat 20 mg by mouth (PO) twice weekly for 2 out of 3 weeks + erlotinib 100 mg PO daily; 2) dose level 2 (DL2) = panobinostat 30 mg and erlotinib 100 mg; 3) dose level 3 (DL3) = panobinostat 30 mg and erlotinib 150 mg; and 4) dose level 4 (DL4) = panobinostat 40 mg and erlotinib 150 mg. Doses were not escalated over the course of treatment of an individual participant.
Other Names:
  • histone deacetylase inhibitor
  • HDAC
Drug: erlotinib
Erlotinib was taken daily without interruption. Each cycle was defined as a 21-day period. Panobinostat was taken twice weekly, for 2 out of 3 weeks of each cycle. Four dose levels of panobinostat in combination with erlotinib were planned: 1) dose level 1 (DL1) = panobinostat 20 mg by mouth (PO) twice weekly for 2 out of 3 weeks + erlotinib 100 mg PO daily; 2) dose level 2 (DL2) = panobinostat 30 mg and erlotinib 100 mg; 3) dose level 3 (DL3) = panobinostat 30 mg and erlotinib 150 mg; and 4) dose level 4 (DL4) = panobinostat 40 mg and erlotinib 150 mg. Doses were not escalated over the course of treatment of an individual participant.
