Intervention Details:
    Drug: Trabectedin
    Trabectedin i.v. formulation at a dose of 1.5 mg/m2 i.v. over 24 hours on Day 1 every 21 days
    Other Name: YONDELIS
Detailed Description:

The single patient treatment instructions for use are intended for a single patient with advanced soft tissue sarcoma. The patient will be treated with YONDELIS® (trabectedin) i.v. formulation at a dose of 1.5 mg/m2 i.v. over 24 hours on Day 1 every 21 days, provided that he/she fulfills all eligibility criteria.

The patient may continue to receive therapy until there is evidence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Safety will be evaluated and serious adverse events will be reported. Disease assessments will occur according to institutional practice.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 90 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Signed informed consent.
  2. 18 years-of-age or older.
  3. Unresectable, advanced or metastatic, histologically proven soft tissue sarcoma.
  4. Recovery from toxic effects of prior therapies to NCI CTC Grade 1 or better.
  5. Hematologic variables:

    • Hemoglobin ≥9 g/dL
    • ANC ≥1,500/μL
