TH-302 + Doxorubicin Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma
A Randomized Phase 3, Multicenter, Open-Label Study Comparing TH-302 in Combination with Doxorubicin vs. Doxorubicin Alone in Subjects with Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Sarcoma Phase III 20111252

The purpose of this study is to determine whether TH-302 in combination with Doxorubicin is safe and effective in the treatment of Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma.

Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)

  • Females who are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Concomitant disease or condition that could interfere with the conduct of the study, or that would, in the opinion of the investigator, pose an unacceptable risk to the subject in this study
