    A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from certain tissues, like bone or muscle. There are 2 main types of sarcoma: bone sarcomas and soft tissue sarcomas.

    Soft tissue sarcomas are cancerous (malignant) tumors that originate in the soft tissues of your body. Soft tissues connect, support and surround other body structures. The soft tissues include muscle, fat, blood vessels, nerves, tendons and the lining of your joints (synovial tissues). A large variety of soft tissue sarcomas can occur in these areas.

    The American Cancer Society's estimates for soft tissue sarcomas in the United States for 2014 are (these statistics include both adults and children):

    - About 12,020 new soft tissue sarcomas will be diagnosed (6,550 cases in males and 5,470 cases in females).

    - 4,740 Americans (2,550 males and 2,190 females) are expected to die of soft tissue sarcomas.

    CYTR presented updated progression-free survival and overall survival results from its completed Phase 1b/2 clinical trial of aldoxorubicin in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma.

    The final data showed substantial improvement in median progression-free survival over the previously-reported data, as well as impressive median overall survival

    According to the principal investigator of the trial and renowned sarcoma expert, the data from this now completed study are certainly a promising advance and show that aldoxorubicin was clinically active and generally well tolerated in patients who are particularly difficult to treat given the advanced stage of their disease.

    Aldoxorubicin is currently being studied in a pivotal global Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of aldoxorubicin as a second-line treatment for patients with soft tissue sarcoma under a Special Protocol Assessment with the FDA. CYTR is also conducting two Phase 2 clinical trials evaluating aldoxorubicin in patients with late-stage glioblastoma and HIV-related Kaposi's sarcoma.
