The purpose of this study is to determine anti-tumor activity by measuring overall response rate in recurrent and/or metastatic HNSCC patients receiving the combination of metformin and pembrolizumab. Patients will be randomized into arms 1 and 2, to either receive Metformin prior to pembrolizumab or to begin Metformin after pembrolizumab treatment begins. Metformin will be administered daily via an oral tablet either before or after pembrolizamab begins, and pembrolizamab will be administered via IV infusion every 3 weeks.

UC study sheds light on cancer treatment, COVID-19

University of Cincinnati researchers have found that certain treatments for cancer may increase the chance of death if they contract COVID-19. Of the 3,600 patients analyzed from 122 institutions across the country, we found that 30-day mortality was highest among cancer patients treated one to three months prior to COVID-19 diagnosis and was highest for those treated with a chemotherapy/immunotherapy combination.
