The CompARE study has been set up to investigate which treatment is most effective for patients who have higher-risk oropharyngeal cancer. The purpose of this study is to consider using additional treatments in conjunction with standard chemoradiotherapy to increase cure rates of higher-risk oropharyngeal cancer. This will be done by adding surgery or immunotherapy or more chemotherapy or higher dose radiotherapy to the standard chemoradiotherapy. Immunotherapy is novel approach, which uses drugs that encourages the body's natural defence system, the immune system to attack cancer cells.
