Brief Summary:
The trial is a study conducted to evaluate the safety, tolerability and PK characteristics of Carrimycin tablet and measure its anti-tumor efficacy initially in the treatment of patients with locally advanced, recurrent, or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (non NPC).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Drug: Carrimycin Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This study is a prospective open phase-I study to investigate the safety, tolerability and PK characteristics of Carrimycin tablet in the treatment of patients with locally advanced, recurrent, or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (non NPC). The 3x3 dose escalation design will be adopted, including 200mg, 400mg and 600mg of Carrimycin; and three subjects at each dose level initially. If there is no DLT in the dose level of 200mg, the dose level of 400mg will be followed; if there is one DLT in the dose level of 200mg, another three patients will be added in the dose level of 200mg; if there is no DLT occurs in the another three patients, the dose level of 400mg will also be followed; if there is one DLT in the another three patients, the trial will be closed. The same condition to the dose level of 400mg and 600mg. If a patient fails to receive the full prescribed dose for reasons other than DLT at the time of the first administration, the patient will be replaced. Carrimycin treatment to the patients with DLT will be discontinued immediately and they will enter the follow-up period and will not be replaced. The study consists of screening period, treatment period and follow-up period. The treatment period continues until the patients develop progressive disease, dies, lost to follow-up or withdraw informed consent.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Test Group
The 3x3 dose escalation design will be adopted, including 200mg, 400mg and 600mg of Carrimycin; and three subjects at each dose level initially. If there is no DLT in the dose level of 200mg, the dose level of 400mg will be followed; if there is one DLT in the dose level of 200mg, another three patients will be added in the dose level of 200mg; if there is no DLT occurs in the another three patients, the dose level of 400mg will also be followed; if there is one DLT in the another three patients, the trial will be closed. The same condition to the dose level of 400mg and 600mg.
Drug: Carrimycin
The study involves three dose groups: 200mg, 400mg and 600mg. Three patients are planned for each dose group. Starting from the low dose group, the treatment to three patients in the 200mg dose group: 200mg of Carrimycin after meals every morning (po) for three weeks, and then discontinue for one week, the tolerance and efficacy evaluation will be performed after the 4 weeks. DLT will be recorded during the 4 weeks.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: Two years ]
    According to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) 5.0, evaluate adverse events occurred during the whole study period.

  2. Dose limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: Four weeks ]
    According to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) 5.0, observe the dose limiting toxicity (DLT).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate to Carrimycin [ Time Frame: Four weeks ]
    Including complete response (CR), partial response (PR), stable disease (SD) and progressive disease (PD)

  2. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Two years ]
    The period between the time a patient with a cancer disease begins to receive treatment and observe the disease progression or die for any reason
