Phase II Study of Nivolumab in Combination With Radiation Therapy as Definitive Treatment for Patients With Locally Advanced, Unresectable Head and Neck Mucosal Melanoma.

Publication date: Nov 29, 2018

This is a Phase 2, single center study to evaluate the efficacy, safety of nivolumab in combination with radiation therapy in patients with mucosal melanoma of the head and neck (MMHN). Target Accrual and Study duration We will accrue up to 26 patients. It is estimated to take up to 2 years. The sample size is calculated by use of SWOG CRAB (Cancer Research And Biostatistics) to control the type I error at 5 % for null hypothesis that the true response rate was 25 % or below and to have 80 % of power if the true response rate was 50 % or higher. Although the target number of evaluable patients is 23, we planned to recruit 10% more than the target number of patients considering dropout, total 26.
