Multimodality Therapy before and after Surgery in Patients with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck


This phase II clinical trial studies how well multimodality therapy works before and after surgery in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as durvalumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, nab-paclitaxel, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving carboplatin, nab-paclitaxel, and durvalumab before surgery and using durvalumab with or without radiation therapy and cisplatin after surgery may kill more tumor cells in patients with head and neck cancer.

Study of Monalizumab and Cetuximab in Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck


The objective of this study is to evaluate in a 3 +3 design, the safety of escalating doses of Monalizumab given IV in combination with cetuximab in patients who have received prior systemic regimen(s) for recurrent and / or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Cohorts expansion will evaluate antitumor activity of monalizumab and cetuximab with or without anti-PD(L)1
