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.
