Abstract

Although elderly patients (≥70 years) represent 30% of new diagnoses of soft tissue sarcoma (STS), they are underrepresented in clinical trials and are often unfit to receive standard anthracycline-based chemotherapy. Trabectedin is registered as a second-line treatment for advanced STS and is characterized by a favorable safety profile.
