Treating head and neck cancer patients with systemic therapy is challenging because of tumor related, patient related and treatment related factors. In this review, we aim to summarize the current standard of care in the curative and palliative setting, and to describe best practice with regard to structural requirements, procedures, and monitoring outcome. Treatment advice for individual head and neck cancer patients is best discussed within a multidisciplinary team. Cisplatin is the drug of choice for concomitant chemoradiotherapy in the primary and postoperative setting, and also a main component of induction chemotherapy. However, acute and late toxicity is often significant. Checkpoint inhibitors have recently been proven to be active in the metastatic setting which has resulted in a shift of paradigm.

New options for patients with hematologic malignancies stemming from recent FDA approvals are making an impact on treatment strategies recommended in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology. The guidelines, which take into consideration the clinical evidence that the FDA evaluated in approving novel agents and new indications for existing drugs, are commonly used as a baseline in helping oncology specialists decide on which treatments are best for their patients. Due to the rarity of this disease, there have only been a small number of studies that evaluate patients with this malignancy, and treatment strategies are relatively limited. Patients were randomized to receive either ibrutinib or placebo, with all patients receiving rituximab. The median PFS had not been reached in the ibrutinib arm by the median follow-up of The lead author of the study, Meletios A. Prior to the introduction of this new therapy, the NCCN guidelines had recommended rituximab-based therapies for the treatment of WM.
