Get Permission

The information contained in this Clinical Trials Resource Guide includes actively recruiting clinical studies focused on sarcomas. These studies are focusing on anticancer vaccines, T-cell therapy, combination chemotherapy, pathway inhibitors, preoperative radiotherapy, and more. All of the studies are listed on the National Institutes of Health website at ClinicalTrials.gov.

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: National Cancer Institute

Purpose: To test a combination of the anticancer drugs pomalidomide (CC-4047) and liposomal doxorubicin in patients with Kaposi sarcoma

Study Type: Phase I/interventional/single-group assignment

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center (University of Iowa)

Purpose: To assess the safety and maximum tolerated dose of decitabine in combination with gemcitabine among previously treated patients diagnosed with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma or sarcoma (soft tissue and bone)

Primary Outcome Measures: Dose-limiting toxicity [time frame: up to 30 days after the last date of any study therapy]; tumor response rate—change at evaluations [time frame: change on two consecutive evaluations at least 8 weeks apart up to 30 days after the last date of any study therapy]

Principal Investigator: Laith Abushahin, MD; (319) 356-7407, laith-abushahin@uiowa.edu

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02959164

PHASE II

Study Title: Phase II Study of TAK-228 (MLN0128) in Soft-Tissue Sarcomas With Dysregulation of the mTOR Pathway

Study Type: Phase II/interventional/single-group assignment

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: Fox Chase Cancer Center

Purpose: To test the efficacy of TAK-228 for patients ≥ 18 years of age with complex genomic sarcomas exhibiting phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K) pathway dysregulation

Primary Outcome Measures: The progression-free survival rate with TAK-228 in sarcoma patients with PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway dysregulation [time frame: 12 weeks posttreatment]

Principal Investigator: Sujana Movva, MD; (888) 369-2427, sujana.movva@fccc.edu

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02987959

***

Study Title: Pilot Study Evaluating Hypofractionated Preoperative Radiation Therapy for Soft-Tissue Sarcomas of the Extremity and Chest Wall

Study Type: Phase II/interventional/single-group assignment

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: Medical College of Wisconsin

Purpose: To determine local control and overall/progression-free survival using hypofractionated preoperative radiation therapy in patients with primary localized soft-tissue sarcomas

Primary Outcome Measures: Local control [time frame: 5 years]

Principal Investigator: Meena Bedi, MD; (414) 805-4400, mbedi@mcw.edu

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02634710

***

Study Title: Phase II Study of Cediranib (AZD2171) in Patients With Alveolar Soft-Part -Sarcoma

Study Type: Phase II/interventional/single-group assignment

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: National Cancer Institute

Purpose: To determine whether cediranib, which blocks the creation of new blood vessels, is effective in inhibiting tumor growth in individuals who have alveolar soft-part sarcoma

Primary Outcome Measures: To determine whether pediatric patients with aleveolar soft-part sarcoma will experience at least a minimal response rate when treated with AZD2171 [time frame: 2 cycles]

Principal Investigator: Alice P. Chen, MD; (301) 496-4291, chenali@mail.nih.gov

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00942877

***

Study Title: A Phase II Trial of Preoperative Proton Therapy in Soft-Tissue Sarcomas of the Extremities and Body Wall

Study Type: Phase II/interventional/single-group assignment

Study Sponsor and Collaborators: Loma Linda University

Purpose: To determine whether proton radiation decreases the long-term side effects of radiation on normal tissues and if smaller proton radiation fields reduce local recurrence compared to the larger radiation fields that have been used in prior studies

Primary Outcome Measures: Late radiation toxicities (> grade 2 lymphedema, subcutaneous fibrosis, and joint stiffness) [time frame: at 2 years from the start of radiation treatment]

Principal Investigator: Gary Yang, MD, Loma Linda University Medical Center; (909) 558-4000 ext 44280, gyang@llu.edu
