Phase II Trial: uPAR-PET/CT for Prognostication in Head- and Neck Cancer

In this study all included patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) have an uPAR-PET/CT scan performed before the initiation of the curative intended radiotherapy. After the radiotherapy treatment the patients attend the routine clinical follow-up programme at Rigshospitalet to follow the loco-regional control, signs of metastasis and the overall ...


Pembrolizumab With Chemotherapy for Poorly Chemo-responsive Thyroid and Salivary Gland Tumors

Eligible patients will be divided into two cohorts. Cohort 1: salivary gland tumors without SOC treatment option Cohort 2: 'aggressive' thyroid cancer without SOC treatment option Both cohorts will undergo a biopsy and will begin immunotherapy plus chemotherapy. Pembrolizumab and steroid sparing taxane: docetaxel will be given every three weeks ...


A Gene Hunting Study for Familial Papillary Thyroid Cancer

The aim of this project is to identify genetic risk factors associated with familial papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). This can be accomplished in several ways, including loss of heterozygosity studies as well as comparative gene expression analysis. When possible, linkage analysis on families with multiple individuals affected with PTC may ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Lancet Blood Sampling for Radioiodine Dosimetry in Thyroid Cancer

Recruitment Patients will be recruited to the trial from the pool of routine referrals for this therapy. Potential participants will receive an information leaflet via the post several weeks in advance of attendance at clinic. Patients will have the opportunity to telephone the study team during this time to answer ...

Phase N/A

Skin/Soft Tissue Elasticity in Head and Neck Cancer Survivors With Lymphedema and Fibrosis

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To obtain pilot data of the elasticity of skin/soft tissues using shear wave elasticity at the defined anatomical sites in head and neck cancer survivors with lymphedema and fibrosis (LEF). II. To explore the correlation between elasticity of skin/soft tissues and the following: 1) symptoms as measured ...

Phase N/A

Recombinant EphB4-HSA Fusion Protein and Pembrolizumab MK-3475

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate of the combination of pembrolizumab and recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein (sEphB4-HSA) as combination therapy. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the biomarkers of response. II. Determine the unique toxicities of the combination of pembrolizumab and sEphB4-HSA. OUTLINE Patients receive pembrolizumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes ...


A Multicenter Trial of PLA vs. Surgery for Treating PTMC

PLA is the acronym for "Percutaneous Laser Ablation". The treatment consists in the destruction (ablation) of Papillary Thyroid Micro Carcinoma by means of optical fibers that deliver high-energy light (laser) into the lesion through skin puncturing (percutaneous). The procedure is performed under ultrasound imaging guidance (ultrasound-guided). The destruction of the ...

Phase N/A

Outcome Prediction in Head&Neck Cancer Patients After Radiotherapy Patients

For head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), radiation therapy is one of the mainstays of therapy either as definitive therapy alone or in combination with systemic therapy or following surgical resection as postoperative treatment. Nowadays there's great attention for personalized medicine which aims at offering a patient the treatment ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of an Oral Care Programme for Head and Neck Cancer Patients

This study will evaluate the effect of an oral care programme on prevalence, severity and duration of mucositis in patients undergoing treatment for cancer in the head and neck region. The oral care programme consists of professional oral care and swabbing of the mucosal membranes with a saline/bicarbonate solution once ...

Phase N/A

Image-guided Cryoablation of Head Neck and Spine Tumors

The participant will be assigned to either group 1 for MRI-guided cryoablation or group 2 for PET/CT guided cryoablation. Each participant's placement will be made by a team of radiologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists. After the eligibility screening Group 1: The investigators will assess the participant's tumor ...
