Alpha Lipoic Acid for the Reduction of Treatment Related Pain and Side Effects During Chemoradiation in Patients with Stage II-IVB Head and Neck Squamous Cell Cancer
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of alpha lipoic acid in decreasing treatment related pain and side effects during chemoradiation in patients with stage II-IVB head and neck squamous cell cancer.
