  • Type of Study: Drug

Standard treatment of surgery followed by radiation can stop tumors from growing in the head and neck region in most patients. However, cancer can recur or spread. Cetuximab may delay or prevent tumor growth and is approved by the FDA for head and neck cancer. This study will determine how easily cetuximab can be added to treatment with radiation therapy. This study will also look at how well cetuximab added to radiation therapy works over time and how well this treatment is tolerated


Eligible Patients Must Have Locally Advanced Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Head And Neck.
