... Ongoing Study
Dr. Pollack is conducting ongoing clinical trials combining chemotherapies and checkpoint inhibitors in patients with metastatic or unresectable sarcomas—one focusing on pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and doxorubicin hydrochloride combination treatment and the other studying the combination of avelumab (Bavencio) and trabectedin (Yondelis).
Ultimately, he hopes to expand treatment options for patients with advanced sarcoma, who have an estimated survival of 12 to 18 months.
The Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration, the Sarcoma Foundation for America, and the Gilman Sarcoma Foundation funded the research.
