Salivary Gland NRG-HN010 

Study #NRG-HN010

A Controlled, Randomized Phase II Trial of Docetaxel Plus Trastuzumab Versus Ado-Trastuzumab Emtansine for Recurrent, Metastatic, or Treatment-Naive, Unresectable HER2-Positive Salivary Gland Cancer

This phase II trial tests whether ado-trastuzumab emtansine works to shrink tumors in patients with HER2-positive salivary gland cancer that has come back (recurrent), spread to other places in the body (metastatic), or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Trastuzumab emtansine is a monoclonal antibody, called trastuzumab, linked to a chemotherapy drug called emtansine. Trastuzumab attaches to HER2 positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers emtansine to kill them. Trastuzumab emtansine may work better compared to usual treatment of chemotherapy with docetaxel and trastuzumab in treating patients with salivary gland cancer.
