When we look at the statistics, we observed that patients for those that the sarcoma has spread to other parts of the body, the prognosis is very low.
Additionally, most of the sarcomas come back within the first two years of the treatment.
Clinical knowledge is very limited due to lack of funding. There have been no new treatments since the 1980s, which leads to a poor survival rate.
Sarcoma Can Affect Anyone, Young or Old
It does not discriminate between children or adults
Sarcoma Can Occur In Any Part Of The Body
Example Of A Pelvic Bone Tumor
Why is it that we don’t know how to treat sarcoma effectively?
It is a rare cancer and the information we know about it is limited. Also, because is rare, there is no financial incentive for pharmaceutical companies to invest in a rare disease, also there is no incentive to support research for sarcoma.
As a consequence, we are using the same drugs that were used 20 years ago.
