Adjunctive Treatment - Resources for Adjunctive (or Complementary) Therapies for Sarcomas

Organization: Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation

Traditional cancer therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery have been employed in the treatment of sarcomas. It is true that in part, these therapies have in the past helped to reduce the presence of the disease, but by in large, conventional therapies have fallen short of providing the same type of outcomes for sarcomas as have been possible for other forms of cancer. Sarcomas have high rates of recurrence, suggesting that conventional therapies have been unable to change the ultimate course of the disease. The result is limited survival for many of those diagnosed with different forms of sarcoma.
