2020 Practice Changing Trials in Sarcoma (Surgonc Today 2021)
Activity Description

Recent trials in sarcoma sought to determine the impact of neoadjuvant therapies and histologic/genomically specific treatments. Valerie Grignol, MD, Gabriel R. Tinoco Suarez, MD, and Alessandro Gronchi, MD, FSSO, discuss the following recent trials will. The EORTC-62902:STRASS trial evaluated the impact of neoadjuvant radiotherapy for retroperitoneal sarcoma on abdominal recurrence-free survival. A study by the Italian, Spanish, French and Polish Sarcoma groups sought to determine if histology-tailored neoadjuvant chemotherapy was superior to standard anthracycline plus ifosfamide for high-risk extremity and trunk soft tissue sarcoma for disease-free and overall survival. The NAVIGATOR study evaluated the PDGFRA inhibitor avapritinib and its activity in D842V-mutant gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Lastly the INVICTUS study evaluated the impact of further line therapy ripretinib, a switch-control tyrosine kinase inhibitor, on progression-free survival in advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
