This study is for patients with HPV positive oropharynx cancer. The purpose is to determine if maintenance nivolumab following definitive therapy with radiation and chemotherapy (cisplatin) result in significat improvement in overall survival (OS) (time being alive) and progression-free survival (PFS) (time being alive without cancer).
This study is for patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. The purpose of this study is to see if adding a new drug called avelumab to another drug call cetuximab can increase the length of time patients are alive without their cancer getting worse.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) and will need additional treatment following surgery. The investigational drug in this study is Durvalumab. The purpose of this study is to investigate other drugs that may be combined with radiation to treat SCCHN. The study focuses on determining whether durvalumab combined with radiation will have improved 3-year disease free survival compared to historical control. Participants can expect to be in this study for 5 years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with with resectable High-risk Locally Advanced Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (LA cSCC). The investigational drug used in this study is Pembrolizumab. The purposes of this study are to: determine how well pembrolizumab keeps the cancer from coming back or spreading as compared to placebo, determine if giving pembrolizumab after surgery and radiation helps patients live longer, and to test the safety of the study drug and see how patients' bodies handle it. Participants can expect to be in this study for about 8 years. This includes the time that participants will be on study drug and in follow up to see if the cancer has come back or spread.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC). The investigational drug used in this study is Ficlatuzumab. The main goals of this research study is to study the safety and effectiveness of Ficlatuzumab with or without Cetuximab, to determine which strategy will be more effective, as well as to learn the potential side effects of Ficlatuzumab alone or in combination with Cetuximab. It is unknown exactly how long participants can expect to be in the study. Subjects will receive treatment until the drug is no longer effective on their cancer.
The purpose of this first in human study is to find a safe dose level of the investigational drug REGN3767 alone or in combination with REGN2810. Other purposes of this study are to measure the levels of REGN3767 and REGN2810 in the subject's blood and to collect any evidence of tumor shrinkage when given alone or in combination with REGN2810.
REGN3767 and REGN2810 are both a type of drug called a monoclonal antibody. Antibodies are proteins that are naturally found in your blood stream that fight infections. A monoclonal antibody is a special kind of antibody that is manufactured as a medication to target a specific protein in the body that may be involved in the subject's cancer.
In this part of the study each participant will receive 1 of 3 different doses of REGN3767 alone or in combination with one dose of REGN2810. There will be a total of 6 different groups of participants the study team plans to study based on what dose of REGN3767 they receive and whether they receive it alone or with REGN2810.
The study is sponsored by Regeneron. The investigator in charge of this study at MUSC is Carolyn Britten, MD. Part 1 of this study is being done at 4-5 sites. Approximately24-48 people will take part study-wide.
This is a study that looks at the use of anti-platelet therapy and chemotherapy in patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC). Anti-platelet therapy is the use of drugs that reduce the blood's ability to form clots. The overall goal of this study is to see if this therapy combination can increase the body's ability to fight the disease.
