Abstract Text Patritumab plus cetuximab with platinum as first-line therapy for patients with recurrent and/or metastatic (R/M) squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) was evaluated for safety and to determine the recommended phase II combination dose.Patients aged ≥18 years with confirmed R/M SCCHN received intravenous patritumab (18 mg/kg loading dose; 9 mg/kg maintenance dose every 3 weeks) + cetuximab (400 mg/m2 loading dose; 250 mg/m2 maintenance dose weekly) + cisplatin (100 mg/m2 every 3 weeks) or carboplatin (AUC of 5) for six cycles or until toxicity, disease progression, or withdrawal. Primary endpoints were dose-limiting toxicities [DLT; grade ≥3 (21-day observation period)] and treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE). Pharmacokinetics, human antihuman antibodies (HAHA), tumor response, progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) were assessed.Fifteen patients completed a median (range) of 8.7 (2.0-20.7) patritumab cycles. No DLTs were reported. Serious adverse events were reported in 9 patients (patritumab-related n = 4). TEAEs (N = 15 patients) led to patritumab interruption in 7 patients. Patritumab-related dose reductions were reported in 1 patient. Patritumab (18 mg/kg) pharmacokinetics (N = 15) showed mean (SD) AUC0-21d of 2,619 (560) μg/day/mL and maximum concentration of 499.9 (90.4) μg/mL. All patients were HAHA-negative at study end (single, transient low titer in 1 patient). Tumor response rate (complete plus partial response; N = 15) was 47%. Median (95% confidence interval) PFS and OS (N = 15) were 7.9 (3.7-9.7) and 13.5 (6.6-17.5) months, respectively.Patritumab (18 mg/kg loading dose, 9 mg/kg maintenance dose) plus cetuximab/platinum was tolerable, active in SCCHN, and selected as the phase II dose regimen.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown head and neck squamous cell carcinoma not applicable Cetuximab + Cisplatin + Patritumab Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase Ib clinical trial, combined Erbitux (cetuximab), Patritumab (U3-1287), and Platinol (cisplatin) treatment was tolerable in patients with recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and resulted in a 47% (7/15) overall response rate (3 complete responses and 4 partial responses), stable disease in 53% (8/15) of patients, a 7.9-month median progression-free survival, and a 13.5-month overall survival (PMID: 30327312; NCT02350712). 30327312
