Clinical Sarcoma Research

Research Advances Techniques and Care for Sarcoma Patients

Clinicians and researchers at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center are constantly looking for ways to advance care and improve the prognosis for patients with all types of sarcomas.

The survival rate for sarcoma patients has remained steady for the past 20 years. UH Seidman Cancer Center researchers are actively seeking ways to improve that number through a variety of clinical trials and basic science research.

Participation in clinical trials can be an important treatment option for individuals with sarcoma. Patients may be eligible to participate in a trial during treatment at UH Seidman Cancer Center. Participation is voluntary and dependent on the specifics of the individual's diagnosis. It is best for patients to discuss options with their care team to get all the information needed to make an informed decision.

Osteosarcoma Translational Research Project

UH Seidman Cancer Center researchers are investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in the metastasis (spread) of osteosarcoma, a primary form of bone cancer. The goal of this study is to identify new drugs that can stop the cancer from spreading.

Pediatric Clinical Trials

University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital is involved in a number of clinical trials aimed at improving the care of children with sarcoma. These include drug trials and studies that are comparing the effectiveness of multiple treatments for a variety of sarcomas.
