    Includes controlled clinical studies conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the drug for a particular indication or indications in participants with the disease or condition under study and to determine the common short-term side effects and risks.

    Principal Investigator


    Primary Objective:

    • To determine if ado-trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) shows better progression-free survival (PFS) when compared to docetaxel plus trastuzumab (TH) in recurrent and/or metastatic (R/M) HER2-positive salivary gland cancer (SGC) patients who have not previously received HER2 therapy for unresectable or recurrent and/or metastatic disease, as determined by local assessment.

    Secondary Objectives:

    • To compare the overall response rate (ORR) by RECIST v1.1 criteria between arms;
    • To compare overall survival (OS) between arms;
    • To compare toxicity using CTCAE v5.0 criteria between arms;
    • To assess patient-reported toxicity, as measured by the PRO-CTCAE, between arms, and explore patient-reported symptomatic adverse events (AEs) for tolerability of each treatment arm as measured by the PRO-CTCAE.
