Childhood sarcoma is a type of cancer characterized by tumors in the nerves, muscles or bones. It is particularly prevalent in Indiana, where places such as Johnson County have a higher than average rate of childhood sarcomas. The IU Precision Health Initiative’s childhood sarcoma research team is planning to launch a clinical trial testing molecularly targeted maintenance therapy for metastasized sarcoma at the time of diagnosis. Unlike adults, children do not receive maintenance therapy after chemotherapy and surgery. The goal of the study is to develop curative therapies for rhabdomyosarcoma, osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma.
