Clinical trial seeking participants with early-stage oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma

For information regarding this trial, please visit https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03502148.

PRV111 consists of a topical patch designed to deliver and retain high concentrations of various existing systemic agents within the primary tumor and associated nodal basins. When placed on a tumor, PRV111 releases and retains cisplatin-loaded particles into the tumor, resulting in a dramatic reduction in tumor size, without the accompanying systemic side effects associated with intravenous cisplatin (i.e. nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity). This has been seen in several preclinical studies. Local and regional effects of PRV111 are expected to improve tumor resectability, decrease post-operative radiation and chemotherapy, and improve patient survival. This organ-sparing therapy is special because it can preserve oral cavity form and function. Also, it can improve control of the disease loco-regionally, which can result in improving a patient’s overall survival rate. In patients with the metastatic disease, PRV111 (when combined with standard of care chemo-radiation regimen) can provide improved locoregional control while maintaining a tolerable side effect profile that ultimately improves quality of life.  Before you consent to join a clinical trial, it is important for you to have all the information you need to be confident about your decision.
