This phase II trial studies how well intensity-modulated radiotherapy and nivolumab work together in treating participants with head and neck squamous cell cancer that has come back. Inten...
Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with or without chemotherapy (if given, either cisplatin, cetuximab, or carboplatin-paclitaxel)
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ipilimumab when given together with cetuximab and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in treating patients with previo...
This is a study for patients who have head and neck cancer that has recurred in the body area where they previously received radiation, and for whom surgery is not planned. A widely accept...
Head & Neck squamous cell carcinomas are the commonest cancers afflicting the developing countries. Traditionally surgery or radiotherapy alone in the early stages and surgery with postop...
Progress in radiation treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) deserves the studies focused on molecular predictors that would help to enhance individually tailored treatment.
Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is widely used in the treatment of Head and Neck Cancers (HNC). There is not enough evidence to suggest that some radiation oncologists (RO) are associated with...
Radiation therapy for squamous cell cancer of the head and neck with unknown primary (head and neck CUP) has been associated with significant levels of swallowing toxicity. We examined the effect of c...
A comparison of dose distributions in gross tumor volume between boron neutron capture therapy alone and combined boron neutron capture therapy plus intensity modulation radiation therapy for head and neck cancer.
Nine patients with recurrent head and neck (H&N) cancer received boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) in one fraction at the Tsing-Hua Open pool reactor (THOR) utilizing the THORplan treatment plannin...
To quantify the risk of radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RION) after stereotactic/image-guided positioning and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with ≥50 Gy to the anterior visual pathway...
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
