Abstract
BackgroundAlthough induction chemotherapy can reduce distant metastases in locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), overall survival (OS) improvement because of induction chemotherapy has not been confirmed. MethodsWe reviewed medical records of 224 patients diagnosed with locally advanced HNSCC who were treated with induction chemotherapy followed by concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CRT; induction chemotherapy/CRT; N = 144) and CRT alone (N = 80) from 2005 to 2013. We analyzed OS and progression-free survival (PFS). ResultsThe 3-year OS rate was significantly higher in the induction chemotherapy/CRT group compared to the CRT group (74.0% vs 62.7%; p = .045). The 3-year PFS rate was 64.6% in the induction chemotherapy/CRT group and 54.1% in the CRT group (p = .060). Subgroup analysis showed patients with high N classification (N2 or N3) oropharyngeal cancer had greater benefits when treated with induction chemotherapy/CRT. ConclusionInduction chemotherapy plus CRT improved OS, compared to CRT alone in locally advanced HNSCC, especially with high N classification. (c) 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
