Sarcoma is a type of cancer of the bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue. The different types of sarcoma are named for where the cancer forms. For example, osteosarcoma is sarcoma that forms in the bone, and cardiac sarcoma is sarcoma that forms in the tissues of the heart.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.

Clinical trial eligibility flowcharts

Eligibility flowcharts map clinical trials to specific types of cancers to determine if a participant is eligible for the particular clinical trial. View all sarcoma eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
