 Treatment of metastatic head/neck cancers?

My friend Gerry has acinic cell cancer of the parotid gland that has
metastasized to his lung and spine. His doctors seem to have written him
off, advising him to put his affairs in order. He's doing that, but he
also wants to look into experimental treatments, so I offered to look
around the net for some ideas. What he's been told is that metastatic
cancers of the head and neck are not very treatable (except to make the
patient more comfortable), so he's looking for names of people or places
involved not in clinical approaches, but in experimental
trials/treatments of these types of cancer.

Where do you all suggest I look? Are there additional newsgroups or
bitnet lists where I might find info? Any of the alt. groups or sci.med.
groups? He knows about Cancernet, and we've searched Medline. Many, many
thanks. This is one of the finest people I've ever known; he'd do
anything for anybody. I'd like to find some way to help keep him around
for a while.
