Targeting Treatment of Soft Tissue Sarcomas (Cancer Treatment and Research)ISBN: 1402078080;
Book DescriptionRecent achievements in the development of new techniques and agents for the treatment of cancer in general as well as for soft tissue sarcomas are tremendous. Molecular biology research has changed the landscape considerably and an increasing number of subtypes of soft tissue sarcomas are related to changes in cellular growth factors in the cell signaling pathways. This enables the development of targeted agents with specific activity against these factors. The presence of the KIT receptor at the surface of the gastrointestinal stroma tumor cell, and the activation constituted by mutations has led to the discovery of an extremely active specific KIT tyrosine kinase inhibitor. In accordance with the more targeted approach in drug use, thechanges in the field of radiation therapy and surgery basically focus on a better targeting of the disease, albeit not yet based on the molecular characteristics. All of these stress the importance of the multidisciplinary approach to...
