RTx, high risk CRTx post-surgery). Follow-up was comparable (56-57 months median per Tx group). Tumor samples were stained/quantitated for 20 biomarkers (5 tumor cell, 15 tumor microenvironment); 2 ratios; 14 combinations were prospectively defined, including low/high thresholds for each biomarker, ratio; combinations defined as +ve or -ve. Defined prospective interactions models (all subjects) allowed three-way interactions assessment for risk groups, biomarker level to analyze Tx efficacy for OS, PFS, LRC hazard ratio (HR) outcomes using proportional hazard models. Results The HPP (n=453) and the LR HPP (n=210) were representative of the overall population (n=923). LR efficacy was favorable for LI+CIZ+SOC vs SOC as shown below

Conclusion LI neoadjuvant Tx followed by surgery and NCCN-directed RTx confirmed efficacy (OS, PFS, LRC) in the HPP subset. Multiple biomarkers (tumor: p16, PDL1, TME: CD4, CD8, CD3, FOXP3, CD20, CD68, CD163, CD1A, immune cells: PD1, CTLA4, PDL1, and CD25), ratios (CD4/CD8, CD8/FOXP3), and combinations proved to be predictive. LI + Surgery + RTx prolongs OS in SCCHN patients with no new Tx options in decades.

Its impact on long-term survival is already uncertain. Materials and Methods In order to standardize the study population, we considered only one-hundred head and neck cancer patients, with locally advanced (stage III-IVA/B) nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal disease treated in our center with radical intent from 2005 and 2021 with the following schedule: -Helical TomoTherapy (HT), delivered with a Simultaneous Integrated Boost (SIB) technique: 54 Gy (1.8 Gy/day) to the clinically negative neck region and 66 Gy (2.2 Gy/day) or 69 Gy (2.3 Gy/day) to the tumor and positive nodal regions based on 18FDG CT/PET imaging. -concomitant platinum-based CT (at least 200 mg/m2). This population was divided in two subgroups, based on the weight difference between the beginning and the end of radiotherapy: less or equal to 5% (subgroup 1=33 pts) versus more than 5% (subgroup 2=67 pts). Results All patients concluded the treatment, without significant interruption. The median weight loss during CT-RT was 7% (range 0-23%). The median overall survival was 52 months (range 3-209). Using Kaplan Meier method the OS was significantly higher in the subgroup with the lower weight loss (fig 1, p-value 0.04)
