New Clinical Trial for Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma in the United Kingdom: CASPS – A Phase II Trial of Cediranib

Dear ASPS Community,

We are very happy to report the opening of another clinical trial for ASPS patients in the United Kingdom. This new clinical trial is a phase II trial of Cediranib. Every trial brings with it the hope for cure!

ASPS patients who are trying Cediranib are sharing their experience on iCureASPS Forum. I would encourage everyone to click here and read comments and discussions of those patients. Please use our website, read and study well! Share information and communicate.

Best Wishes to everyone and thank you very much Dr. Judson and all who are working with you for taking the lead on this clinical trial.
