Patients with primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) planned for treatment with radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy in curative setting will be treated with an adaptive radiotherapy scheme. An FDG-PET/CT and MRI scan for re-delineation and re-planning will be made at the end of the second and fourth of week of radiotherapy. The non-responding part of the tumor on FDG-PET will receive a mild dose-escalation. Depending on the metabolic response, the entire tu...
Radiation therapy is an important part of the treatment for lung cancer when treatment intent is for cure. Radiation is a local modality of treatment, that is, it only treats the area that the radiation can target. Therefore it is critical to be able to visualize all the areas of tumor involvement. With current imaging tests such as computed tomography scans (CT), the scans may not be sensitive enough to detect all areas of cancer involvement but with newer imaging tests, suc...
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 primary objective of this study is to describe, in detail, patterns of care for head and neck carcinoma patient
RATIONALE: PEG-interferon alfa-2b may interfere with the growth of tumor cells and slow the growth of head and neck cancer. It may also stop the growth of head and neck cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving PEG-interferon alfa-2b before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying how well different doses of PEG-interferon alfa-2b work in treating patients wi...
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.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known if treatment with cisplatin plus epinephrine is effective for head and neck cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized double-blinded phase III trial to determine the effectiveness of cisplatin plus epinephrine in injectable gel form in treating patients who have recurrent or refractory head a...
This clinical trial is for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma who are scheduled to have their tumor surgically removed. The study involves obtaining baseline tissue from a clinical biopsy or research biopsy and measurement of circulating tumor cells before surgery to determine whether AXL protein expression pre-treatment correlates to clinical outcomes (change in tumor size) after two doses of cetuximab. The importance of this study is to describe if AXL expres...
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.
