Systemic Therapy in Metastatic or Unresectable Well-Differentiated/Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma.
MetadataShow full item record
Liposarcoma is one of the most common subtypes of soft-tissue sarcoma and consists of three main subtypes, of which well-differentiated liposarcoma and dedifferentiated liposarcoma account for 40-45%. The current mainstay of systemic treatment for patients with metastatic or unresectable disease remains doxorubicin with or without ifosfamide in the first-line setting. Recently, eribulin and trabectedin have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for recurrent liposarcomas and progress in molecular characterization of these tumors has opened up new and potential novel treatment targets. This review will focus on the evidence base for current treatment strategies and will also discuss potential future options.
