Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a heterogenous group of cancers, consistive of over 80 histological entities and even more molecularly distinct subtypes. Although treatment of resectable is well-defined, guidance becomes limited in the metastatic setting. After doxorubicin-based treatment, there are a multitude of cytotoxic options; however, the activity of these agents varies depending on the specific subtype of STS.

The REGOSARC trial was a set of phase II trials that explored the activity of regorafenib in patients with different types of STS. A fifth cohort of this trial evaluated the effect of regorafenib after pazopanib in non-adipocytic STS.

Overall, the trial demonstrated positive (but different) effects across STS subtypes, indicating a potential future role in the management of sarcoma.
