Abstract Aim The aims of the study are to evaluate the clinical outcomes of first-line treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy and cetuximab in patients with relapsing/metastatic head and neck cancer (RM HNC) and to identify predictors of treatment response. Methods This is a retrospective, observational, longitudinal, real-world study involving 6 oncology centres in Italy. All consecutive patients with RM HNC treated between January 2007 and December 2016 with a first-line therapy consisting...

The major development of the past decade in the first-line treatment of recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (R/M SCCHN) was the introduction of cetuximab in combination with platinum plus 5-fluorouracil chemotherapy, followed by maintenance cetuximab (the “EXTREME” regimen). This regimen is supported by a phase 3 randomized trial and subsequent observational studies and it confers well-documented survival benefits, with median survival approximately ranging b...
