    Study Title:

    Pilot Trial of Adaptive Radiotherapy Boost for Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas


    Primary endpoints: 1)For each patient MR adaptive therapy will be considered feasible if the sum of target coverage of adaptive plans meets criteria while unadapted CT based plan does not (minimum voxel dose to GTV is greater than or equal to the prescription dose, minimum voxel dose to PTV is greater than or equal to 95% of the prescription dose, and 95% of PTV volume receives prescription dose) 2) OR if sum of adaptive plans reduces mean OAR (parotids, submandibular glands, pharynx, oral cavity, tubarial glands, larynx, esophagus, and thyroid) doses greater than 7.5% compared to unadapted CT based plan.

    • Patients with histologically or cytologically confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity, oropharynx, nasopharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, or unknown primary in the neck.
    • Patients with measurable disease, either at primary site or neck per RECIST 1.1.
    • For patients planned to receive chemotherapy, adequate hematologic, hepatic and renal function as outlined in protocol.
    • International normalized ratio of prothrombin time (INR) and prothrombin time (PT) within 28 days before randomization must be WNL for the lab. Patients who are therapeutically treated with an agent such as warfarin may participate if they are on a stable dose and no underlying abnormality in coagulation parameters exists per medical history.

  • Exclusion Criteria

      Exclusion Criteria:
    • Pregnancy or lactation
    • Patients who have had prior radiotherapy to the head and neck or prior systemic therapy for the index cancer.
    • Patients who had undergone definitive surgery for the index cancer.
    • Patients with distant metastatic disease
    • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
