Study Description

Brief Summary

The purpose is to explore the efficacy and safety of the combination of albumin-bound paclitaxel and liposomal doxorubicin in the treatment of advanced or unresectable angiosarcoma.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase
  • Drug: Abraxane combined with liposomal doxorubicin
Phase 2

Detailed Description

Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a relatively rare malignant tumor. In recent years, the disease has been increasing gradually. As an important biological feature of soft tissue sarcoma is local recurrence and distant metastasis, most patients die of distant metastasis. Despite the improvement of local control rate, more than 50% of patients died of unresectable or distant metastasis due to tumor progression. Doxorubicin and ifosfamide based chemotherapy is the standard first-line treatment for patients with relapsed / distant metastasis / unresectable advanced soft tissue sarcoma. For patients who fail or cannot tolerate first-line treatment, the choice of treatment is still limited. At present, some clinical patients who failed to receive standard treatment have tried to use the albumin-bound paclitaxel and liposomal doxorubicin regimen, with the ORR of 33% and PFS of about 8 months. As a new combination of chemotherapy drugs, more targeted phase II clinical studies are needed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the new chemotherapy drugs in a variety of cancer species. In view of the above problems, this study aims to observe and explore the efficacy and safety of the combination of albumin-bound paclitaxel (keaili) and liposomal doxorubicin (duomeisu) in the treatment of advanced angiogenic sarcoma patients, and to provide better treatment options for patients with advanced sarcoma.
