Y-mAbs is currently studying a treatment for DSRCT. See the trial details here.
DSRCT, a type of tumor called a sarcoma, is rare and is usually located in the abdomen. It occurs most often in male children, teenagers, and young adults.
DSRCT often causes pain in the abdomen and sometimes causes a mass to develop in the abdomen and other places. In addition to CT, MRI, and positron emission tomography (PET) scans, diagnosis is sometimes made through a biopsy of the tumor.
Treatment often involves a combination of chemotherapy and either surgery or radiation therapy. Patients may have the option of participating in a radioimmunotherapy clinical trial that uses targeted radiation with the goal of striking tumor cells, while sparing healthy cells.
