Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies nab-paclitaxel (paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation) and carboplatin followed by response-based local therapy in treating patients with stage III or IV human papillomavirus (HPV)-related oropharyngeal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, carboplatin, hydroxyurea, fluorouracil, paclitaxel, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them spreading. Radiation therapy uses high energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving nab-paclitaxel and carboplatin before chemoradiation may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of chemotherapy and radiation therapy needed. Assigning chemotherapy and radiation therapy based on response (response-based therapy) and giving patients who are responding well lower doses of treatment may help reduce the occurrence of side effects.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS, evaluated using RECIST version (v) 1.1 [ Time Frame: Time from enrollment until disease progression or death from any cause, assessed at 2 years ]
    If all patients are followed for two years, the PFS rate and confidence interval will be determined based on the exact binomial distribution. Otherwise PFS will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and a (large-sample) one-sided 90% confidence interval will be derived for the PFS rate at two years to test the non-inferiority hypothesis. Median PFS will be estimated as described in Brookmeyer and Crowley.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of pathologic complete response on post treatment biopsy/surgery, evaluated using RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 8 weeks after completion of CRT ]
    Pathologic response rates will be determined and 95% confidence intervals obtained using the exact binomial distribution.

  2. Clinical complete response by positron emission tomography, evaluated using RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Clinical response rates will be determined and 95% confidence intervals obtained using the exact binomial distribution.

  3. Overall survival [ Time Frame: From the date of registration to the date of death or date of last patient contact if censored, assessed up to 5 years ]
    Kaplan-Meier curves will be generated. In addition, cumulative incidence curves will be derived for the competing risks of cancer and non-cancer death.

  4. Cancer-specific survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Kaplan-Meier curves will be generated. Patients dying from non-cancer related causes will be censored at the time of death. In addition, cumulative incidence curves will be derived for the competing risks of cancer and non-cancer death.

  5. Rates of acute toxicity, determined by incidence of mucositis, xerostomia, anorexia, weight loss, dermatitis and G-tube placement [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Toxicity rates will be summarized by type of toxicity, grade, and attribution. The incidence of acute (mucositis, xerostomia, anorexia, weight loss, dermatitis and G-tube placement) toxicities will be estimated along with 95% confidence intervals.

  6. Rates of late toxicity, determined by incidence of xerostomia, dental decay, osteroradionecrosis, G-tube dependency, tracheostomy placement and dysphagia [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Toxicity rates will be summarized by type of toxicity, grade, and attribution. The incidence of late-term (xerostomia, dental decay, osteroradionecrosis, G-tube dependency, speech abnormalities, tracheostomy placement and dysphagia) toxicities will be estimated along with 95% confidence intervals.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Histologic appearance of post-induction tumor tissue [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months post-treatment ]
    Results of pathology/histologic review of post induction biopsy specimens will be descriptive and summarize in tabular format.

  2. Histologic appearance of post-CRT tumor tissue [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months post-treatment ]
    Results of pathology/histologic review of post induction biopsy specimens will be descriptive and summarize in tabular format.

  3. Changes in reactive T cells [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 2 months after radiation therapy ]
    Changes in reactive T cells over time will be assessed using mixed effects models and simple paired t-tests.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have pathologically confirmed HPV-positive squamous cell carcinoma

    • For oropharyngeal tumors p16 immunohistochemistry (IHC) positivity is sufficient to enroll and initiate treatment (p16 IHC interpretation to follow guidelines by Jordan/Lingen et al 2012); it is recommended that p16 IHC positivity is validated at a later point (during or after treatment) using an E6/E7 based test at the University of Chicago and provided slides will be used

  • Availability of >= 10 unstained 5 micron slides
  • Patients with American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) (7th edition, 2010) nodal stage N2 or N3 or a T4 primary tumor
  • The primary and nodal involvement must be assessable on clinical exam (mucosal and lymph node exam)
  • The primary and nodal involvement must have been defined bi- or uni-dimensional measurements measurable by RECIST
  • No previous radiation or chemotherapy for a head and neck cancer
  • No surgical resection for a head and neck cancer within 8 weeks of enrollment (although lymph node biopsy including excision of an individual node with presence of residual nodal disease, or surgical biopsy of the tumor is acceptable)

  • Creatinine clearance > 45 mL/min (or serum creatinine [SCr] =< 1.5 mg/dL), normal within 2 weeks prior to start of treatment
  • The standard Cockcroft and Gault formula or the measured glomerular filtration rate must be used to calculate creatinine clearance (CrCl) for enrollment or dosing
  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) =< 2.5 X upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Alkaline phosphatase =< 2.5 X ULN
  • Patients must sign a study-specific informed consent form prior to study entry; patients should have the ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unequivocal demonstration of distant metastases (M1 disease)
  • Intercurrent medical illnesses which would impair patient tolerance to therapy or limit survival; including but not limited to ongoing or active infection, immunodeficiency, symptomatic congestive heart failure, pulmonary dysfunction, cardiomyopathy, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance
  • Pregnant and nursing women are excluded; men and women of child-bearing potential are eligible but must consent to using effective contraception during therapy and for at least 3 months after completing therapy; women with child-bearing potential must have a negative serum or urine beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (B-hCG) pregnancy test at screening
  • Other coexisting malignancies or malignancies diagnosed within the previous 3 years no evidence of disease for at least 3 years; exceptions to this include non-melanoma skin cancer, cervical cancer in situ, well differentiated thyroid cancer or prostate cancer; other cancers that per assessment of the PI are not prognosis limiting can be allowed after review by the PI
  • Prior surgical therapy other than incisional or excisional biopsy and organ-sparing procedures such as debulking of airway-compromising tumors or neck dissection in a patient with an unknown primary tumor; residual tumor is required for enrollment on study
