Concurrent cisplatin and radiation versus cetuximab and radiation for locally advanced head-and-neck cancer
Carcinoma, Squamous Cell
Head and Neck Neoplasms
In this study of LAHNC patients, CDDP/RT achieved better locoregional control, FFS, and OS than C225/RT. Although the results were upheld on multivariate analysis, they must be interpreted cautiously because of the retrospective nature of the study and significant differences in patient selection. There was no statistically significant difference in late Grade 3 or 4 effects or feeding tube dependence.
