RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. It is not yet known which regimen of radiation therapy is more effective for head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of different regimens of radiation therapy in treating patients who have head and neck cancer.
Through this study, we hope to learn more about the mechanisms, which may contribute to development and progression of head and neck cancer. The long-term goal of this study will be to develop new strategies and drugs for the diagnosis and treatment of head and neck cancer.
The primary objective of this study is to describe, in detail, patterns of care for head and neck carcinoma patient
The study regimen consists of cisplatin and radiation for all patients, the standard treatment for head and neck cancer. All patients will also receive pembrolizumab (the study drug), and will be randomized to two treatment schedules: either pembrolizumab with cisplatin-radiation, or pembrolizumab after completing cisplatin-radiation. The goal of this research study is to learn which therapy order (adding pembrolizumab during vs. after cisplatin and radiation) may be more effe...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive head and neck cancer can be treated with a less aggressive regimen of radiation therapy and chemotherapy (paclitaxel) after initially receiving two cycles of chemotherapy (carboplatin/paclitaxel).
The primary purpose of the study is to assess the adherence and health seeking behavior of incorporating medically certified cannabis into the supportive care regimen for patients with Head and Neck cancer (HNC) undergoing treatment with definitive or adjuvant concurrent chemoradiation (CRT).
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness and side effects of a new combination and schedule of chemotherapy drugs in the treatment of head and neck cancer. Patients with advanced or recurrent head and neck cancer, which is untreatable by surgery or radiation therapy are eligible for this study. Standard treatment for advanced or recurrent head and neck cancer involves the use of chemotherapy.
The primary objective of this study is to estimate the modulation of intermediate biological endpoints of the combination of 4-HPR and SCH66336, a farnesyl transferase inhibitor (FTI), across 4 randomly assigned dose levels in patients with locally advanced or recurrent head and neck cancer. We will also assess the activity, safety, tolerability and side effects of 4-HPR/SCH66336 and hope to establish a phase II regimen.
Patients with head and neck cancer will be imaged with PET scan and CT scan in order to determine areas of the tumour that are hypoxic. It is hypothesized that PET /CT will provide information on hypoxia of the tumors and tumor regions in head and neck cancer patients.
An Immuno-therapy Study of Nivolumab in Combination With Experimental Medication BMS-986205 Compared to Standard of Care EXTREME Regimen in First-line Recurrent/Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Head and Neck
This is a study of Nivolumab in combination with experimental medication BMS-986205 compared to the standard of care EXTREME regimen in head and neck cancer that has come back after initial treatment, or is widespread when first diagnosed.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the combination of 2 chemotherapy drugs called pemetrexed and gemcitabine might be effective treatment for head and neck squamous cell cancer. The researchers want to find out what effects, good and/or bad, that this treatment has on head and neck cancer.
This phase II clinical trial studies how well soy isoflavones work in preventing head and neck cancer in patients with stage I-IV head and neck cancer undergoing surgery. Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of soy isoflavones may prevent head and neck cancer recurrence.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether TAS-106 is effective to patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer refractory to platinum based chemotherapy.
This is an multicenter study for preventive and therapeutic strategies for patients with head and neck cancer
To evaluate the efficacy of first line oxaliplatin in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in patients with advanced inoperable or metastatic head and neck cancer and to investigate the safety profile of this regimen in the above indication and consider other criteria of efficacy (clinical benefit, survival)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a progressive therapeutic exercise program on specific physical and functional deficits in the neck and shoulder region occurring as a result of head and neck cancer treatment.
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 disease. Cetuximab is helpful in relapsed head and neck cancer, and it improves the effectiveness of radiation in some head and neck cancer patients. But, it has not been studied with reirradiation. The purpose of this study is to see the effects, both good and bad, of reirradiation with cetu...
The purpose of this study is to better understand how to use celecoxib, a popular drug widely used for arthritis, for head and neck cancer patients. Some doctors believe that celecoxib may have helpful effects when used for head and neck cancer. Celecoxib has been shown to prevent some cancers in animals. It has also been used to make standard chemotherapy and radiation work better in both animals and humans. However, all of the previous studies focused on tumors outside the he...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if a paclitaxel-cisplatin combination regimen given in the neoadjuvant setting is active in locally advanced head and neck cancer. the safety of this treatment will also be studied.
Study of Nivolumab in Combination With Ipilimumab Compared to the Standard of Care (Extreme Study Regimen) as First Line Treatment in Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck
The main purpose of this study is to compare nivolumab and ipilimumab with the Extreme study regimen as first line treatment in patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell of the head and neck cancer
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that adaptive radiotherapy (ART) in head and neck cancer patients are comparable to historical controls in head and neck patients undergoing standard intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) without ART.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy in different ways and combining it with chemotherapy before surgery may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known which radiation therapy regimen combined with chemotherapy with or without surgery is more effective for head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare two different radiation therapy regimens combined with cisplatin with or without surgery in...
RATIONALE: Drugs that make cancer cells more visible to light may help in the diagnosis of head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the usefulness of porfimer sodium in diagnosing patients with head and neck cancer.
This is a research study to test the combination of two drugs, pembrolizumab and epacadostat with the goal of benefiting subjects with head and neck cancers where prior or ongoing regimens with a PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitor for the treatment of advanced head and neck cancer after platinum failure.
The purpose of the study is to describe the regional and global FDG-kinetics in head and neck cancer during percutaneous radiation therapy.
