Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UCSF
9 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • A Study of the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of Epacadostat Administered in Combination With Nivolumab in Select Advanced Cancers (ECHO-204)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 1/2, open label study that will be conducted in 2 parts. The first part of the study (Phase 1) will consist of a dose-escalation assessment of the safety and tolerability of epacadostat administered with nivolumab in subjects with select advanced solid tumors and lymphomas including melanoma (MEL), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), colorectal cancer (CRC), head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCCHN), ovarian cancer, and B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) or Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). The second part (Phase 2) of the study will include expansion cohorts in the tumor types tested in Phase 1 (except diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) will be the only lymphoma permitted and Phase 2 will also include a cohort for glioblastoma) with a) historically good activity with nivolumab monotherapy, and b) with historically low activity with nivolumab monotherapy.

  • Study to Assess MEDI4736 With Either AZD9150 or AZD5069 in Advanced Solid Tumors & Relapsed Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Head & Neck

    open to eligible people ages 18 years to 130 years

    This multicentre, open-label, Phase 1b/2 study is designed as a 2 part study consisting of a dose-escalation, safety run-in Part A and a dose-expansion Part B

  • A Combination Clinical Study of PLX3397 and Pembrolizumab To Treat Advanced Melanoma and Other Solid Tumors

    Sorry, not recruiting here

    The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how PLX3397 and pembrolizumab work together to affect cancer cells. PLX3397 is designed to target the receptor for CSF1 (CSF1R). Pembrolizumab is designed to block the interaction between the receptor PD-1 and molecules that bind PD-1. In this study, PLX3397 and pembrolizumab are being given together in order to study their combined effects on patients' immune responses to their tumors. Tumor-specific immune responses have been shown to kill cancer cells and/or to stop tumors from growing. Part 1 of the study (dose-escalation phase) will establish the safest dose of PLX3397 to be given in combination with pembrolizumab. Part 2 of the study (expansion phase) will include an evaluation of efficacy of this combination in the following tumor types: - Advanced melanoma: prior anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy but never responded - Advanced melanoma: prior anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy and responded but later progressed as defined by irRECIST while on therapy - Non-small cell lung cancer - Ovarian cancer - Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) - Squamous cell cancer of the head and neck

  • A Study Evaluating MM-310 in Patients With Solid Tumors

    Sorry, not recruiting here

    MM-310 is a liposomal formulation of a docetaxel prodrug that targets the EphA2 receptor on cancer cells. Docetaxel is an approved chemotherapeutic drug.This study is a Phase 1 open-label study of MM-310 in patients with solid tumors. In the first part of the study, MM-310 will be assessed as a monotherapy until a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is established. After an MTD of MM-310 as a monotherapy is established, an expansion cohort and MM-310 in combination with other therapies will be assessed.

  • A Trial of Intratumoral Injections of SD-101 in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma or Recurrent or Metastatic Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Sorry, not recruiting here

    This is a phase 1b/2, open-label, multicenter trial designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, biologic activity, and preliminary efficacy of intratumoral SD 101 injections in combination with intravenous pembrolizumab in patients with metastatic melanoma or recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Phase 1 of this trial is a modified 3+3 dose escalation study evaluating escalating or intermediate dose levels of SD-101 given with a fixed dose of pembrolizumab in patients with metastatic melanoma. Phase 2 of this study will consist of 4 expansion cohorts to further evaluate the efficacy and safety of SD-101 given in combination with pembrolizumab in specific melanoma and HNSCC populations: For each of the indications in melanoma and HNSCC 2 separate cohorts will be recruited, those who are anti-programmed death receptor-1/ligand 1 (anti-PD-1/L1) therapy naïve and those who have progressive disease (PD) while receiving anti-PD-1/L1 therapy.

  • Efficacy Study of Pembrolizumab in Relapsed, Locally Recurrent Squamous Cell Cancer of the Head and Neck

    Sorry, not recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether pembrolizumab, when given after salvage surgery, is effective in increasing the time a person with squamous cell cancer of the head and neck remains disease-free following locoregional disease recurrence.

  • Phase II Study of MEDI4736 Monotherapy in Treatment of Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Primary Objective: To assess the efficacy of MEDI4736 monotherapy in terms of ORR

  • Phase II Study of MEDI4736, Tremelimumab, and MEDI4736 in Combination w/ Tremelimumab Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of investigational medical products (MEDI4736 monotherapy, tremelimumab monotherapy, and MEDI4736 + tremelimumab combination therapy) in the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic carcinoma of the head and neck who have progressed during or after treatment with a platinum containing regimen for recurrent/metastatic disease.

  • Study to Assess Safety and Tolerability of Oral CC-115 for Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors, and Hematologic Malignancies.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The main purpose of this first human study with CC-115 is to assess the safety and action of a new class of experimental drug (dual DNA-PK and TOR kinase inhibitors) in patients with advanced tumors unresponsive to standard therapies and to determine the appropriate dose and tumor types for later-stage clinical trials. The bioavailability of tablet and capsule formulations under fasting and fed conditions will also be evaluated in some patients.
