What's New in Treatment & Trials

Clinical Trial Opportunity for Head & Neck Cancer with FGFR 1, 2, or 3 Fusions

The FUZE Clinical Trial is evaluating an oral investigational medication, called Debio 1347, that may block cancer cell growth. You may qualify if you have an advanced head or neck cancer with a specific genetic alteration, called a fusion of FGFR 1, 2, or 3 receptor. If your head or neck cancer has progressed after treatment, ask your doctor about a new clinical trial that focuses on this specific genetic alteration. Every tumor has a genetic makeup. Learn more at FuzeTrial.com.
