Y-mAbs is currently studying a treatment for osteosarcoma. See the trial details here.
Osteosarcoma is a type of cancer that starts in the bones and often causes tumors to develop around the knee or in the upper arm. This type of cancer can affect people of any age, but occurs most often in children, teenagers, and young adults. Osteosarcoma is usually diagnosed through X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs).
Treatment is aimed at shrinking the tumor through chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery. In rare cases, osteosarcoma can recur. When this happens, there are options to consider. Today, there are therapies being investigated in clinical trials that use the body’s own immune system to help fight the disease. Learn more below on who may be eligible for these trials.
