Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS) is rare. Accounting for only 1% of adult cancers, most people have never heard of STS and many physicians will never see a patient with STS throughout their career. STS is heterogeneous and complex. With more than 50 histological subtypes and no known demographic or lifestyle contributors, it is difficult to diagnose and challenging to treat. STS is relentless. About 50% of patients are diagnosed with advanced disease due to diagnosis delays or misdiagnoses leading to an average 12-14 months of survival and 5-year survival rates of only 17%. STS has seen limited therapeutic advances. No regimen or product has been shown to improve overall survival (OS) in the first line (1L) in over 40 years – until LARTRUVO® (olaratumab).
