About Angiosarcoma Angiosarcoma is an aggressive form of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) of endothelial cell origin that is associated with poor prognosis. Angiosarcoma has a 5-year survival rate of less than 12%, which highlights the aggressive nature of this tumor when compared to a 5-year survival rate of approximately 56% for all STS. Angiosarcoma can arise in any soft tissue structure. About half of patients present with a primary cutaneous lesion. Risk factors include prior radiation exposure as well as inflammatory damage in chronically sun exposed skin. Angiosarcoma has also been associated with chronic lymphedema. Although resection with curative intent followed by adjuvant radiotherapy is the treatment of choice for localized disease amenable to surgery, approximately 50% of these patients will develop metastases and die from the disease. basicsFurthermore, metastases are frequently present at diagnosis, and resection of metastases is rarely feasible. Read More Angiosarcoma is an extremely rare disease and meets the definition for an orphan disease in the US and European Union (EU), the two regions for which the Phase 3 TAPPAS study is planned. TRC105 has received orphan designation for the treatment of soft tissue sarcoma in both the US and EU. The annual incidence of angiosarcoma in the US was reported by the NCI in 2015 to be 475 cases.
