EC-18 for Oral Mucositis in Patients With Concomitant Chemoirradiation

This is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-stage trial in subjects with squamous cell cancers of the mouth, oropharynx, hypopharynx and nasopharynx planned to receive standard fractionated IMRT-delivered radiotherapy with concomitant chemotherapy (cisplatin). Informed consent will be obtained from each subject prior to enrollment. The trial will be performed in 2 stages: Stage 1 will consist of a blinded parallel group safety study of 4 cohorts in which 24 subjects will be randomized (1:1:1:1) into four equally sized groups to receive one of three doses of EC-18 (500 mg, 1000 mg, 2000 mg; unit dose of 500 mg) or placebo. Stage 2 of the study will evaluate both safety and efficacy. Stage 2 will consist of eighty (80) subjects who will be randomized in a 1:1 scheme to receive either placebo or 2000 mg of EC-18 as determined by iDSMB in Stage 1.

• Patients practicing daily oral hygiene (by tooth brushing and/or mouth rinse) and willing to maintain at least their routine oral hygiene procedure during study participation.
• Willingness to keep already used permitted concomitant medication, food supplements (e.g. probiotics) or herbals, which might have in the discretion of the investigator a potential influence on OLP, on a stable basis during the study.
Exclusion Criteria:

• Patients requiring more than 6 patches (corresponding to an area of approximately 3 cm2 per patch) to cover symptomatic ulcerative and erythematous OLP lesions at baseline visit.
• Ongoing active visible fungal, bacterial or viral infection of oral mucosa, including ongoing treatment of those at baseline.
• Patient with any un-healed oral surgery (including recent diagnostic biopsies, if applicable) or oral laser therapeutic wound(s) at baseline visit.
• Any of the following systemic treatments prior to baseline visit: Corticosteroids, Antibiotics, Retinoids, Immunosuppressive drugs (e.g. azathioprine, cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil, or biologics), Antimycotics.
• Any of the following topical treatments used in the oral cavity prior to baseline visit: Corticosteroids, Antibiotics, Cyclosporine, Tacrolimus, Pimecrolimus, Antimycotics, Retinoids.
• Phototherapy in oral cavity prior to baseline visit: UVB, PUVA.
• Current participation in another clinical study and/or having received treatment with any non-marketed / investigational medicinal product (drug substance or medical device) within 4 weeks prior to screening.
• Known or suspected intolerance/hypersensitivity/resistance to clobetasol propionate or any component of the investigational medicinal product.
• Patients who previously have failed to respond to OLP treatments with systemic glucocorticosteroids, methotrexate, cyclosporine, retinoids and/or azathioprine.
• Any history of squamous cell carcinoma (even if resected), as well as history of other non-squamous cell carcinoma (e.g. sarcoma, salivary gland tumors) that have been managed with radiation or chemotherapy.
• History of cancer (except resected cutaneous basal cell carcinoma and except in situ cervical cancer) unless it can be documented that the patient has been in a disease-free state for at least 5 years. In case of clinical suspicion of malignancy in the oral cavity, a patient can only be included after an excluding biopsy.
