Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This Phase II trial is trying to determine whether using immunotherapy and radiotherapy for the treatment of localised, high-risk soft tissue sarcoma is more effective than giving radiotherapy alone.
 

This trial is treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma.

This is a systemic therapy, radiotherapy and surgical.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • Your cancer has not spread to other parts of the body.

Scientific Title

A Phase II Randomized Controlled Trial of Neoadjuvant Pembrolizumab With Radiotherapy and Adjuvant Pembrolizumab in Patients With High-Risk, Localized Soft Tissue Sarcoma of the Extremity

Cooperative Group

Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration

Summary

Participants will be randomised into an experimental or standard of care arm of the study. In the experimental arm, participants will receive neoadjuvant pembrolizumab with concurrent radiotherapy, followed by surgical resection and adjuvant pembrolizumab. In this study, standard of care will include neoadjuvant radiotherapy followed by surgical resection. This trial is recruiting patients with undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma or dedifferentiated/pleomorphic Liposarcoma of the extremity. Patients with non-melanomatous skin cancer, in situ carcinoma, or low-risk prostate cancer will also be considered for enrolment in this study.
