We’re committed to our mission of finding new treatments that may help improve the lives of people with cancer. Our clinical trials for head and neck cancer study investigational medications alone, or in combination with other study medications, or standard of care therapy. We perform these trials to see if they can help prevent, find, or treat cancer.

Head and neck cancers usually begin in the tissues and organs of the head and neck (eg, larynx, lips, mouth, nose, throat, and salivary glands). Use of tobacco, excessive drinking, and infection due to human papilloma virus (HPV) increase the risk of developing such cancers.

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether
to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial
includes risks, which the study doctor will review
with you. Make sure you understand the risks
before participating.
