Head and Neck Tumor clinical trials at UCLA

9 in progress, 5 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • LYT-200 Alone and in Combination With Chemotherapy or Tislelizumab in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    A Phase 1/2 Open-label, Multi-center Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Anti-tumor Activity of LYT-200 Alone and in Combination with Chemotherapy or Tislelizumab in Patients with Metastatic Solid Tumors

  • Pea Protein Oral Nutrition Supplement for the Reduction of Gastrostomy Tube Placement Rate in Patients With Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer Undergoing Chemoradiation Therapy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies the effect of a plant-based oral nutrition supplement, Kate Farms Standard 1.4 and/or Standard 1.0. as a primary source of nutrition in reducing the gastrostomy tube placement rate in patients with head and neck cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) and who are undergoing chemoradiation therapy. Gastrostomy tube (G-tube) placement can be used for enteral feedings and may lead to long term side effects such as swallowing dysfunction and lead to higher rates of permanent G-tube dependence. The Kate Farms pea protein oral nutrition supplement is formulated with organic, planted-based protein for easier digestibility without artificial sweeteners or additives and without common allergens such as dairy, soy, gluten or corn. It is nutritionally complete, calorie and protein dense and available in multiple flavors that can be consumed directly or as a base for other recipes. Giving pea protein oral nutrition supplement may provide nutritional support to decrease the need for therapeutic G-tube rate during chemoradiation compared to standard supportive care.

  • BCA101 Monotherapy and in Combination Therapy in Patients With EGFR-driven Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The investigational drug to be studied in this protocol, BCA101, is a first-in-class compound that targets both EGFR with TGFβ. Based on preclinical data, this bifunctional antibody may exert synergistic activity in patients with EGFR-driven tumors.

  • Multiple Treatment Combinations in Patients With Locally Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (Morpheus-Head and Neck Cancer)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase Ib/II, open-label, multicenter, randomized, umbrella study in participants with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). The study will enroll treatment-naive participants with resectable Stage III-IVA human papillomavirus (HPV)-negative, programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1)-positive SCCHN with measurable disease, as assessed by the investigator according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors, Version 1.1 (RECIST v1.1) who have not received systemic treatment for their disease.

  • Dostarlimab vs Placebo After Chemoradiation in Adult Participants With Locally Advanced Unresected Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The goal of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of Dostarlimab compared to Placebo in adult participants with HNSCC (Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma)

  • Niraparib in the Treatment of Patients With Advanced PALB2 Mutated Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the efficacy and safety of niraparib in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors and a pathogenic or likely pathogenic tumor PALB2 (tPALB2) mutation.

  • Pembrolizumab Combined With Cetuximab for Treatment of Recurrent/Metastatic Head & Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a prospective, multi-center, open-label, non-randomized, multi-arm phase II trial to evaluate the efficacy of combination therapy with pembrolizumab and cetuximab for patients with recurrent/metastatic HNSCC. There will be four patient cohorts, including a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor-naïve, cetuximab-naïve arm (Cohort 1), a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor-refractory, cetuximab-naïve arm (Cohort 2), a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor-refractory, cetuximab-refractory arm (Cohort 3), and a cutaneous HNSCC arm (Cohort 4). A total of 83 patients (33 in Cohort 1, 25 in Cohort 2, 15 in Cohort 3, and 10 in Cohort 4) will be eligible to enroll. Patients will be enrolled at 4 sites: UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, UC Los Angeles Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, and University of Washington Siteman Cancer Center.

  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Using HyperArc in Treating Patients With Recurrent Head and Neck Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well stereotactic body radiation therapy with HyperArc software technology works in treating patients with head and neck cancer that has come back. Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue.

  • Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) or Placebo With Chemoradiation in Participants With Locally Advanced Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (MK-3475-412/KEYNOTE-412)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab given concomitantly with chemoradiation (CRT) and as maintenance therapy versus placebo plus CRT in participants with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA HNSCC). The primary hypothesis is that pembrolizumab in combination with CRT is superior to placebo in combination with CRT with respect to event-free survival (EFS).
