Abstract Text In the treatment of metastatic soft tissue sarcoma (STS), pazopanib is considered a standard treatment after failure of chemotherapy. We retrospectively investigated outcomes of pazopanib in patients with metastatic uterine STS.A retrospective study was performed on 35 consecutive patients with uterine STS treated with oral pazopanib 800 mg daily as salvage therapy for metastatic disease between September 2013 and December 2015. Endpoints included response rate, survival, and safety.Among 35 patients, 27 (77%) had a histologic diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma (LMS) and the median age was 57 years (range, 36-70). Median number of metastatic sites was one (range, 1-5) with lung as the most frequently involved site. Pazopanib was generally well-tolerated: the major hematologic toxicity was grade 1/2 anemia (14%). Among the non-hematologic toxicities, grade 1/2 stomatitis was most commonly observed (22%), followed by fatigue and hypertension. Objective response and stable disease were observed in 10 (29%) and 11 (31%) patients, respectively. However, most cases of clinical response were observed in patients with LMS: 33% for LMS, 20% for undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, and 0% for endometrial stromal sarcoma. Median progression-free and overall survivals were 5.8 months (95% confidence interval [CI]=3.6-8.1) and 20.0 months (95% CI=11.6-28.4), respectively.In this "real-world" retrospective study, salvage therapy with pazopanib demonstrated clinically relevant efficacy and tolerability in unselected patients with uterine STS. Although it is encouraging that outcomes for Korean patients with uterine STS were similar to those reported in the phase III trial, the clinical benefit was limited to LMS.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
