Head and Neck Tumor clinical trials at UC Davis
1 research study open to eligible people

  • Experimental medicine and chemotherapy in treating patients metastatic cancer or tumors that cannot be removed by surgery

    “Study looking at side effects and the best dose of experimental medicine (veliparib) in combination with chemotherapy treatment”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib when given together with paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating patients with solid tumors that are metastatic or cannot be removed by surgery and liver or kidney dysfunction. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving veliparib together with paclitaxel and carboplatin may kill more tumor cells.
