A Phase Ib Immunomodulatory Study of Single Agent Talactoferrin in Patients With Select Relapsed or Refractory Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Squamous Head and Neck Cancer (HNSCC)

This phase I trial studies how well talactoferrin works in treating patients with relapsed or refractory non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or squamous cell head and neck cancer. Biological therapies, such as talactoferrin, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
