This prospective study will collect safety information from more than 600 subjects treated with Erbitux as final evaluable cases. During the PMS period, subject background, subject's medical (surgery, anti-cancer treatment) history, Erbitux treatment status, concurrent medication, response evaluation, status and reason of discontinuation, all adverse events (AEs; regardless of the causal relationship to Erbitux), and abnormal results of laboratory tests will be collected for the study purpose.
The PMS will be based on all cases treated with Erbitux at least once. This PMS is to be done within 6 years from the approval date of the new indication which has been requested by the Korean Regulatory Authorities. After approval of new indication in Korea, it is further required to investigate more than 600 subjects during 6 years according to local regulations to continue monitoring and provide further information about safety and toxicity in clinical practice.
Analysis on safety and efficacy information on the use of Erbitux in the market and factors affecting its safety and efficacy.
- To obtain safety information on the use of Erbitux in subjects with locally advanced SCCHN in terms of frequency and severity of AEs
- To gather clinical efficacy information of the treatment
All subjects will be enrolled in the order to visit the physician after making a contract in about 50 different institutions in Korea.

The purpose of this study is to determine if the combination of two new drugs, cetuximab (Erbitux) and bevacizumab (Avastin) can increase the effectiveness of treatment for head and neck c...
The standard treatment for head and neck cancer relapses in previously irradiated patients is controversial. Reirradiation has had some success, but many patients still die from their dis...
This multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled phase II trial evaluates safety and efficacy of post-operative chemoradiation in combination with cetuximab in squamous cell carcinoma of the hea...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the combination of palbociclib with cetuximab is superior to cetuximab in prolonging overall survival in HPV-negative, cetuximab-naive pat...
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, 2 doses of Cetuximab will have on head and neck cancer. The study is done because 250 mg/m2 given weekly does not w...
This study evaluates maintenance cetuximab administered every 2 weeks (q2w) after chemotherapy plus cetuximab as first-line treatment in a series of patients with head and neck squamous cell cancer an...
To assess the impact of bloodstream infection (BSI) in patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) in the cetuximab era.
Cetuximab combined with radiation therapy (RT) is an evidence-based treatment for locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC); however, locoregional failure remains the primary caus...
Information on re-irradiation (re-RT) for recurrent and second primary head and neck cancer is limited. Herein, a description of our long-term experience of re-RT for previously irradiated head and ne...
Patients with head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) are often uninsured or underinsured at the time of their diagnosis. This access to care has been shown to influence treatment decisions and sur...
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
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.
A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.
Large veins on either side of the root of the neck formed by the junction of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. They drain blood from the head, neck, and upper extremities, and unite to form the superior vena cava.
