Radiation improves survival in older patients with soft tissue sarcomas

UC Davis researchers have shown that radiation therapy following surgery benefits older patients more than their younger counterparts, a surprising finding that could change the way some patients are treated for soft tissue sarcomas. The study, published in the journal Anticancer Research, used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program to assess whether radiation treatments after surgery improved disease-specific and overall survival in patients with non-metastatic sarcomas.
