  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in tissue samples from patients with recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell cancer of the head and neck previously treated with cisplatin with or without cetuximab.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Association between ERCC1 expression (low or high) with clinical outcomes [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between IHC H-score analysis and AQUA expression of ERCC1 [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 79
Study Start Date: September 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To investigate the association between ERCC1 expression and clinical outcomes (response rate, progression-free survival, and overall survival) in patients with recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck who received cisplatin with versus without cetuximab on clinical trial ECOG-E5397.

OUTLINE: Archived tumor tissue samples are analyzed for ERCC1 expression by IHC. ERCC1 levels (low or high) are assessed by an H-score and AQUA, a quantitative IHC analysis. Each patient's ERCC1 level result is then compared with the patient's clinical outcome.
