This pilot clinical trial studies the side effects of nivolumab, ipilimumab and radiation therapy in treating patients with stage IVA-B head and neck cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as...
There are 2 parts to this research study: Part 1 (dose escalation) and Part 2 (dose expansion). The goal of Part 1 of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of nivolumab or nivolumab plus ipilimumab when used following surgery and before standard therapy with radiation and temozo...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if local consolidation treatment (LCT-- surgery and/or radiation) plus standard chemotherapy (ipilimumab and nivolumab) is more effecti...
Objectives: 1. To evaluate the efficacy, in terms of tumor shrinkage, objective response rate, and down-stage rate, of nivolumab + ipilimumab as neoadjuvant therapy for patients wi...
Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Non-RA Connective Tissue Diseases: Scleroderma, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Still's Disease, Dermatomyositis/Polymyositis, Sjögren's Syndrome, and Mixed Connective Tissue Disease.
The most common systemic rheumatologic conditions are connective tissue diseases (including rheumatoid arthritis [RA]) followed by spondyloarthropathy. With the advent of biotherapies and imaging biom...
The immune checkpoint inhibitors ipilimumab, nivolumab, and pembrolizumab have dramatically improved outcomes for patients with metastatic melanoma; however, not all patients benefit from monotherapy ...
Background Nivolumab plus ipilimumab produced objective responses in patients with advanced renal-cell carcinoma in a pilot study. This phase 3 trial compared nivolumab plus ipilimumab with sunitinib ...
Marfan syndrome (MFS) is a systemic connective tissue disorder caused by insufficient fibrillin-1 (FBN-1), a major component of microfibrils that controls the elasticity and integrity of connective ti...
Ipilimumab and Nivolumab are novel monoclonal antibodies that have recently been used successfully for treatment of metastatic melanoma. Ipilimumab is a human monoclonal antibody against Cytotoxic T L...

The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
Neoplasms composed of connective tissue, including elastic, mucous, reticular, osseous, and cartilaginous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective tissue.
Tissue that supports and binds other tissues. It consists of CONNECTIVE TISSUE CELLS embedded in a large amount of EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.
