Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the 10 years that have elapsed since trabectedin was first granted approval in Europe for treatment of advanced soft tissue sarcoma (STS), other cytotoxic agents and targeted therapies have been approved and numerous randomized controlled trials have been completed or are underway. As an academic exercise and positive proof of the advances in STS management that have occurred during the past decade, it is interesting to compare current and future treatment approaches. In this review, present and future treatment approaches are examined by case study for three STS subtypes: uterine leiomyosarcoma, abdominal dedifferentiated liposarcoma and malignant solitary fibrous tumor.
