Abstract

Background

There is substantial evidence that tumors use PARP to repair platinum- induced DNA damage and escape apoptosis. In addition, unifying model emerges with DNA Damage Response/Repair (DDR/R) and immune response systems being activated in concert.

Methods

OPHELIA is phase II trial in which pts are randomized 3:3:3:1 to C 60 mg/m2 on d1 followed by O 75mg d 1-5, O 300 mg bid for 21-28 days, D 1500 mg on d1 followed by O 600mg daily for 21-28 days and no treatment. The D arm will be activated in 9/2018. PBMCs were isolated from blood obtained from pts at diagnosis as well as 24h and 3 weeks following treatment. Double Stranded Brakes/Repair (DSB/R) was measured using phosphorylation of histone H2AX by immunofluorescence and confocal laser microscope analysis, and/or comet assay while Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER) efficiency was measured by southern blotting.

Results

The study continues to recruit pts. Characteristics of 23 enrolled pts were: median age 61.2 years, tobacco use 87%, cT1 (n = 4), cT2 (n = 4), cT3 (n = 2), cT4 (n = 11), cTx (n = 2) and cN0/1 (n = 15), cN2 (n = 8).12 pts were randomized to O, 8 pts to C+O, and 3 pts to no treatment. Preliminary results have demonstrated: 1) No serious study drug-related adverse events or unexpected surgical delays/complications, 2) 4 pts (17%), 3 in O arm and 1 in C+O arm with clinical or pathologic downstaging. 1 pt on O arm had pCR. 15 pts had SD post treatment, 2 pts had PD and 1 had PR. Results are not yet available for 2 pts. 3. Significantly increased ongoing spontaneous DNA damage was obtained in PBMCs from untreated pts compared to healthy controls. Differences in C-induced DNA damage levels were found among pts. Similar formation of monoadducts was found at 3-h ex-vivo C treatment of PBMCs from untreated pts; thereafter, their levels were decreased, with removal capacity being higher in healthy controls than in pts.

Conclusions

Neoadjuvant O with or without C was well tolerated and induced promising antitumor responses. Higher levels of spontaneous ongoing DNA damage were noted in HNSCC pts compared to controls; this feature may serve as a candidate biomarker for response to immunotherapy in HNSCC.
