Angiosarcoma Awareness

We are a patient-driven nonprofit dedicated to researching better therapies and a cure for angiosarcoma.

A rare type of cancer

Angiosarcoma is a rare type of cancer that affects the inner lining of blood vessels or lymph vessels. There is ongoing research on angiosarcoma, aimed at improving the understanding of its causes, developing new diagnostic methods, and finding more effective treatments. Some include:

Genetics

Scientists are studying the genetic mutations that may contribute to the development of angiosarcoma.

Diagnosis

Researchers are developing new imaging techniques and biopsy methods to improve the accuracy of diagnosis.

Treatment

Clinical trials are underway to evaluate the effectiveness of various treatments, including new drugs, targeted therapies, and immunotherapies.

Prognosis

Studies are being done to identify factors that predict the outcome of the disease and to develop strategies to improve the prognosis.
