Management of Sarcoma in the Asia-Pacific Region: Resource-Stratified Guidelines

Jeremy Lewin et al. Lancet Oncol.

Abstract

Sarcomas are a rare and diverse set of cancers that disproportionately affect young people. The best possible outcome depends on access to highly specialised, multidisciplinary care. Although advances have been made in therapeutic techniques, access to some treatments might be limited by cost implications. This Review proposes an evidence-based, consensus recommendation for optimum management of bone and soft-tissue sarcoma across the Asia-Pacific region, taking into account variation in health-care resources, stratified according to the Breast Health Global Initiative resource levels. A web-based survey of 89 clinicians involved in the care of patients with sarcoma from 18 Asia-Pacific countries generated the recommendations for diagnosis, staging, and management, including supportive and palliative care, and research.
