INTRODUCTION

The following material represents a subset of chemotherapy regimens that are used for the treatment of adult patients with soft tissue and bone sarcomas. This is not an exhaustive list; it includes regimens that are considered by the authors and editors to be commonly used and important for the care of patients with sarcomas. Additional regimens may be added over time, particularly as treatment for bone and soft tissue sarcoma evolves.

This topic review is intended to provide only a listing of chemotherapy regimens. It does not address the appropriate context for use of these regimens in the care of patients with sarcomas. Clinicians should refer to the individual disease-oriented topic reviews that discuss the use of these protocols in appropriate clinical situations:

(See "Treatment of locally recurrent and unresectable, locally advanced soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities".)

(See "Systemic treatment of metastatic soft tissue sarcoma".)

(See "Adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy for soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities".)
