December 09, Researchers performed this prospective analysis to construct a risk stratification system for paediatric non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft-tissue sarcoma NRSTSbased on known prognostic factors.
They also evaluated it in the context of ris The participants were enrolled in hospitals in three countries and were younger than 30 years. Allocation of each patient to one of three risk groups and one of four treatment groups was done.
The treatment groups included surgery alone, radiotherapy, chemoradiotherapy, and neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. There were evaluable patients. Findings revealed the utility of pretreatment clinical characteristics for effective determination of treatment failure risk and stratification of young patients with NRSTS for risk-adapted treatment.

Cure can be achieved in most low-risk cases without adjuvant therapy, thereby avoiding known long-term treatment complications.
For intermediate-risk and high-risk patients, survival continued to be suboptimal and there is a need for new therapies.
