At this time we do not have any clinical trials for patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma. It is possible we have trials planned in the future,
but we are not enrolling patients in any trials at this time.
ADENOID CYSTIC CARCINOMA:
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is an uncommon cancer arising in one of the minor salivary glands. Generally, the treatment is surgical removal;
however, every patient's situation is different.
Treatment depends on the stage and grade of the disease, the treatments received and how the patient responded, the overall health
of the patient, as well as other factors. Every patient's situation is unique. The physicians here would need to review specific medical
reports and medical history before giving you a specific opinion.

2. Click on "View Studies by Cancer Type"
3. Click on "Head & Neck"
Any enrollment eligibility should be discussed with a physician. You would first have to become a patient here at M. D. Anderson before
being able to participate in any of our clinical trials.
