[New paper] Personalized biomarker-based umbrella trial for patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: KCSG HN 15-16 TRIUMPh trial

Our new paper has been published in Journal of Clinical Oncology.

In this paper, in collaboration with Prof. Hye Ryun Kim and Hwan Jung Yun, Sangwoo Kim found that NGS-based genomic phenotyping was methodologically feasible and applicable.

In this multicenter, open-label, single-arm phase II trial, we performed targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS). Patients were assigned to each treatment arm on the basis of their matching genomic profiles: arm 1, alpelisib, a PIK3CA inhibitor; arm 2, poziotinib, an epidermal growth factor receptor/HER2 inhibitor; arm 3, nintedanib, an fibroblast growth factor receptor inhibitor; and arm 4, abemaciclib, a CDK4/6 inhibitor. If there was no matching target, patients were allocated to arm 5, duvalumab ± tremelimumab, anti-PD-L1/cytotoxic T-cell lymphocyte-4 inhibitor. The median progression-free survival was 3.4, 3.2, 5.6, 1.6, and 1.7 months for each arm, respectively. The median overall survival was 12.4, 6.1, 11.1, 9.1, and 12.7 months, respectively. Overall, the toxicity profiles were manageable, and there were no treatment-related deaths.
