Neoadjuvant Adriamycin and Ifosfamide Plus High-Dose ICE in Patients With Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Complete resection is still the only curative treatment option in patients with soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Patients with a non-resectable STS have a dismal prognosis even without evidence of metastatic disease. The aim of this trial is to determine whether neoadjuvant dose-intensive chemo-radiotherapy is a feasible and effective approach in patients with non-resectable STS.
