Oncologists in the United States and Europe Indicate that Novel Chemotherapies Hold the Most Near-Term Promise for Improving Outcomes in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

There are only a few agents in Phase III clinical trials and the majority are chemotherapeutic agents, while considerably more therapies are in mid-stage development and, depending on data, regulators may be open to considering a filing based only on Phase II results.

Initial clinical trials typically position these agents in refractory populations, where the barrier to gaining regulatory approval is relatively low. However, expansion into first-line populations is underway for a number of novel agents in development. Decision Resources forecasts that four agents will launch for soft tissue sarcoma between now and 2018 – palifosfamide (Ziopharm's Zymaphos), eribulin (Eisai's Halaven), crizotinib (Pfizer's Xalkori) and Threshold Pharmaceuticals' TH-302.
