This video highlights results of a phase III randomized trial that tested chemotherapy plus bevacizumab in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.
This video reviews ongoing trials testing immunotherapy for patients with head and neck cancer.
In this video we discuss efforts to reduce treatment doses in order to lessen long-term side effects and improve quality of life among patients with head and neck cancers.
Monoclonal antibodies to the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are among the promising novel targeted therapies being explored in colorectal cancer. Two such agents that inhibit EGFR signaling by interfering with ligand-binding are cetuximab (Erbitux) and panitumumab (Vectibix). This review will address the use of cetuximab and panitumumab in chemotherapy-refractory colorectal cancer as well as in front-line therapy for the disease, consider predictors of response and resistance, and outline comparisons between these agents.
