Radioimmunodetection and Radioimmunotherapy in Myosarcoma
Soft-tissue sarcomas account for approximately 1% of all malignancies. The treatment of choice is surgery, which is the only curative treatment for primary tumors of the trunk, head, and neck primaries. Initially, sarcomas of the limbs had to be treated with amputation, but since the discovery that adjuvant radiotherapy can prevent almost half of the local recurrence in sarcoma of the extremities [1, 2], limb-sparing surgery has become possible.
