Clinical experience of with hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy for recurrent head and neck cancer is limited. The primary goals of hyperthermia combined with CCRT on recurrent head and neck cancer are tumor response rate, while secondary goals are rates of acute and late adverse effects, local control rate, distant metastasis rate, progression-free rate and overall survival rate.
This is a two-part clinical study of patients with recurrent Head and Neck Cancer (HNC), who in the opinion of their physician, cannot be satisfactorily treated with surgery, radiation or platinum chemotherapy. The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and anti-cancer activity of various doses and repeated cycles of the experimental treatment using the study drug RM-1929 and fixed amounts of red light applied at the tumor site to activate the pharmacodynamics of the drug. The part 1 of the study has been completed and consisted in a single cycle, 3+3 dose escalation safety study of the experimental drug RM-1929 using a fixed amount of 690 nm red light. The part 1 was designed to determine the safety of the treatment as set by the maximal feasible dose or the maximal tolerable dose of RM-1929. From the part 1 results, the maximal feasible dose of RM-1929 was determined. The part 2 of the study is currently ongoing and it is evaluating the safety and anticancer efficacy of up to four repeated treatments of Photoimmunotherapy with RM-1929 at the maximal feasible dose of RM-1929 activated with a fixed amount of red light.
Participants with recurrent or metastatic (R/M) squamous cell cancer of the head and neck (HNSCC) will be randomly assigned to receive pembrolizumab alone, or pembrolizumab + a platinum-based drug (cisplatin or carboplatin) + 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU), or cetuximab + a platinum-based drug (cisplatin or carboplatin) + 5-FU. The primary study hypothesis is that pembrolizumab or pembrolizumab in combination with chemotherapy prolongs progression free survival and overall survival compared to standard treatment.
Eligible participants with locoregional inoperable recurrence or second primary squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck will be treated with reirradiation combined with anti-PD-1 mAb MK-3475 (generic name: pembrolizumab, trade name Keytruda®).
This is a multi-center phase II study assessing whether cabazitaxel could be efficient for treatment of recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer after failure of cisplatin, cetuximab and taxanes.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PC-A11 with superficial and/or interstitial laser light application in patients with recurrent SCCHN.
This study will evaluate the clinical activity of the combination of ipilimumab (IPI) -926 in combination with cetuximab in patients with advanced head and neck cancer.
Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Gefitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Combining docetaxel with gefitinib may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether docetaxel is more effective with or without gefitinib in treating head and neck cancer. This randomized phase III trial is studying docetaxel and gefitinib to see how well they work compared to docetaxel alone in treating patients with metastatic or locally recurrent head and neck cancer.
