I am from the gyn boards. I have cervical cancer. I was wondering if anyone on the head and neck boards have taken part in the clinical trial using adxs11-001. It is a theraputic HPV vaccine and since cervical cancer and some head and neck cancers are a result of this virus, I thought maybe someone here has taken part in this trial. If so, I was wondering if you could share your experience with me on side effects, effectiveness, ect. According to their website, this vaccine has been granted orphan drug status for head and neck cancers. It has completed a phase 2 trial in India on women with late stage cervical cancER and has shown some promising results. The GOG is doing a study for recurrent and metastatic cervical cancer in the US now, a study for anal cancer and a study for head and neck cancer. I can't seem to find anyone who has taken part in this trial as i am very interested in their experiences. I am currently NED so don't qualify for the trial. I am also hoping that this would be a treatment option at some point for those who have been fully debunked of their tumors and can get the vaccine to prevent recurrence. Just thought I'd ask here. I hope you all are well. Stay strong.
