Slide 1 - Head and Neck Cancers Kazumi Chino, M.D. Radiation Oncology
Slide 2 - Epidemiology 52,000 people diagnosed in the US annually 3% of all cancers in the US Men are twice as likely as women to develop a head and neck cancer Dx is most common after age 50
Slide 3 - Risk Factors Tobacco – approx. 85% of H&N Ca related to tobacco Alcohol HPV in oropharyngeal cancers Epstein-Barr virus in nasopharyngeal cancers Poor dental/oral hygiene Poor nutrition – vit A and B deficiency GERD in pharyngeal cancers
Slide 4 - Histology 90% of H&N cancers are squamous cell carcinomas arising from the mucosal surfaces Salivary gland tumors are typically adenocarcinomas

Slide 15 - Staging: Nasopharynx
Slide 16 - Tx & Prognosis: Nasopharynx Stage I/II tx’d RT alone: local control rates at 5 years for T1= 93%, T2 = 79%, T3 = 68% and T4 = 53% Intergroup 0099 compared RT alone vs cisplatin 100mg/ms day 1, 22, 43 + RT for Stage III/IV 3 yr progression free survival was 24% vs 69% in favor of concurrent chemo/RT 3 yr overall survival was 47% compared to 78% in favor or concurrent chemo/RT Similar trial JCO 2005 showed OS 65%  80% with chemo
Slide 17 - Nasopharynx NCCN Guidelines
Slide 18 - Recurrent or Persistent Dz
Slide 19 - Prognosis: Nasopharnx Keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma has a higher risk of local recurrence after tx than non-keratinizing SCCa or undifferentiated High EBV DNA titers after tx are associated with an increased risk of recurrence
Slide 20 - Presentation: Oropharynx Globus sensation Difficultly swallowing Slurred speech Pain in throat or ear Neck mass
Slide 21 - Staging: Oropharynx
Slide 22 - Staging: Hypopharynx
Slide 23 - Staging: Oro/Hypopharynx
Slide 24 - Staging: Oro/Hypopharynx
Slide 25 - Tx & Prognosis: Oro/Hypopharynx RTOG 73-03 randomized advanced oropharyngeal tumors to surgery with or without post-op RT Post-op RT better LRC (48 vs 65%) & OS (26% vs 38%) RTOG 90-03 and EORTC studies on locally advanced H&N Ca’s (excluding NPX) showed improved LC with concomitant boost with RT
Slide 26 - Tx & Prognosis: Oro/Hypopharynx GORTEC 94-01 (JCO 2004) for Stage III/IV showed benefit of 3 cycles carboplatin/5-FU + RT vs RT alone Chemo-RT improved LC (25 vs 48%), DFS (15 vs 27%) OS (16 vs 23%) Intergroup Trial (JCO 2003) and Duke trials (NEJM 1998) showed similar benefit for cisplatin +/- 5FU Bonner (NEJM 2006) showed benefit of cetuximab with RT over RT alone Cetuximab increased 3 yr LRC (34 vs 47%) OS (45 vs 55%).
Slide 27 - Tx & Prognosis: Oro/Hypopharnx EORTC 22931 Stage III/IV operable H&N Ca’s (excluding NPX) pT3-4 N0/+ Tl­-2N2-3, or Tl-2 N0-1 with ECE, + margin, or PNI randomized to post-op cisplatin 100mg/ms days 1, 11, 43 + RT vs RT alone Chemo­RT improved 3/5 yr DFS (41/36 vs 59/47%) OS (49/40 vs 65/53%) 5yr LRC (69 vs 82%) RTOG 95-01 operable H&N cancer who had > 2 LN, ECE, or + margin randomized to RT vs RT + cisplatin Chemo-RT improved 2yr DFS (43 vs 54%), LRC (72 vs 82%) & trend for improved OS (57 vs 63%) No difference in distant mets for either study

Slide 41 - Tx & Prognosis: Larynx Stage I tx’d with RT with salvage surgery if needed: 5 yr OS 80-98% Stage II tx’d with RT with salvage surgery: 5 yr OS 68-93% VA Laryngeal Trial: Stage III/IV laryngeal tumors randomized to surgery + post-op RT vs induction chemo with cisplatin/5FU followed by RT 2 yr OS was 68% for both groups Laryngeal preservation rate was 64% (36% in the chemo/RT group required salvage laryngectomy)
Slide 42 - Tx & Prognosis: Larynx RTOG 91-11 compared RT alone vs sequential chemo/RT vs concurrent chemo + RT LRC 56% RT alone, 61% sequential, 78% concurrent Decreased distant mets with chemo Bonner trial for cetuximab included laryngeal tumors as well RTOG 95-01 and EORTC 22931 for post-op chemoRT included laryngeal tumors Benefit for > 2LN, T3-4, + ECE, + margins

Slide 54 - Overview of Treatment Surgery: First choice when possible, but often limited by disfigurement and preservation of organ function such as speech and swallowing Radiation: Most head and neck cancer is sensitive to radiation while preserving organ function Side effects can be severe; Mucositis, permanent xerostomia, osteoradionecrosis of the mandible, altered taste, weight loss, and tooth decay Chemotherapy: Can have dramatic response to treatment, but is often not a durable response Side effects can also be severe; decreased blood counts, anemia, infections, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and hair loss Newer targeted therapies have lower side effects
Slide 55 - IMRT
Slide 56 - Recent Advances and Future Directions PET imaging may allow detection of occult LN metastasis negating the need for post-RT neck dissection Sentinel LN bx in the neck is showing use especially in oral cancers IMRT improves SE’s from radiation therapy Taxanes are showing some promise with cisplatin Targeted therapies: phase III trials with zalutumumab and panitumumab, sorafenib (an inhibitor of the intracellular domain of VEGFR, PDGFR and c-Kit) and afatinib (an irreversible inhibitor of pan-HER tyrosine kinase)
