Nivolumab with or without Tadalafil in Treating Patients with Recurrent Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma That Can Be Removed by Surgery
This randomized pilot early phase I trial studies how well nivolumab with or without tadalafil work in treating patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma that has come back and can be removed by surgery.Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Tadalafil may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving nivolumab and tadalafil may work better in treating patients head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
