A genomic analysis of Ewing sarcoma found substantial epigenetic heterogeneity both between tumors and within tumors, highlighting the need to consider non-genetic aspects in cancer biology and treatment.

A study examining predictors of outcome following relapse of primary retroperitoneal sarcoma found that time to local recurrence or distant metastasis significantly predict survival, and that patients who undergo resection for the recurrent disease have better survival than others.

Angiosarcoma has generally poor survival among Asian patients; though chemotherapy can be effective, it has been underused in the last few decades.

Aldoxorubicin yielded significantly better progression-free survival over investigator’s choice of various chemotherapy options in patients with relapsed or refractory leiomyosarcoma and liposarcoma, according to updated results of a phase III trial.

A case study found that a patient with an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor and a chromoplectic TPM3-ALK rearrangement that may be involved in tumorigenesis had a strong response to the ALK inhibitor ceritinib.

The use of a metronomic chemotherapy approach did not improve over standard chemotherapy in patients with high-grade, non-metastatic, operable osteosarcoma of the extremities.

A phase II trial found that the multikinase inhibitor regorafenib has clinical activity and offers improved progression-free survival in certain types of advanced soft-tissue sarcoma.
