Recent Research on Soft Tissue Tumors and Cancers Classified as Sarcomas

Surviving Cancer

This site is intended to point interested individuals to very recent research in the area of soft tissue cancers and cancers classified as sarcomas. Articles are not reprinted here, and it is only my intention to be able to identify available resources or journal articles that may have been missed by other conventional literature searches.

It is my hope that persons affected by these cancers will provide this information to their own doctor if it appears to apply (many of the articles are highly technical and will be of more use to the doctor than the patient). You may wish to get a reprint of the actual article and give it to the attending physician. It is difficult to keep up with all of the research from all of the disciplines as it published, so let's all help out!
