Merck Provides Update on Phase III TrilynX Study in Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer24.6.2024 22:35:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced the discontinuation of the Phase III randomized TrilynX study evaluating xevinapant plus chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with unresected locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (LA SCCHN).
