The primary objective of this study is to describe, in detail, patterns of care for head and neck carcinoma patient
To implement and evaluate a health information technology platform designed to support the management of patients with head and neck cancer in an urban, publicly-funded outpatient setting. This is an observational study; researchers will not assign specific interventions to study participants.
The objective of this registry is to evaluate the long term effectiveness of the Flexitouch System and Flexitouch Plus in those with head and neck lymphedema. This outcome data will include information regarding each subject's medical history, symptoms, quality of life, pain, range of motion (ROM), swelling, ease of use, treatment satisfaction, treatment compliance, and adverse events.
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 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.
In this retrospective registry trial, the investigators sought to assess the incidence and predictors of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications as well as their derivatives (acute coronary syndrome, decompensated heart failure, an episode of atrial fibrillation requiring cardiologist consultation, stroke, pulmonary embolism and venous thromboembolism) in cohort of patients undergoing head and neck surgery.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 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: 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.
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming, growing, or coming back. The use of celecoxib may prevent or treat head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying celecoxib to see how well it works compared to placebo in preventing head and neck cancer in patients with oral leukoplakia.
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as ZD 1839 may interfere with the growth of tumor cells and slow the growth of head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of ZD1839 in treating patients who have metastatic or recurrent cancer of the head and neck.
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 cancer. Cetuximab has recently been approved by the FDA for head and neck cancer (that is locally or regionally advanced) when used in combination with radiation therapy. Cetuximab is also approved by the FDA for the treatment of colorectal cancer
RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of head and neck cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of thalidomide in treating patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.
The standard of care for head and neck and lung cancer includes chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. For patients with cancer of head and neck or lung that recurs after surgery and/or radiation, or has spread to other parts of body, chemotherapy using cisplatin can slow down tumor growth and extend lifespan. The study drug, azacitidine, can block the ability of some cancer cells to replicate, and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in myelodysplastic ...
The purpose of this study is to measure the two-year rate of tooth loss in patients who have received external beam radiation therapy with curative intent for head and neck cancer. The study will also evaluate the sequelae of radiation therapy and oral complications that may occur as a result to receiving radiation therapy.
