This study looked at the combination of olaratumab and doxorubicin compared with doxorubicin alone as treatment for patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma. The combination showed a 50% improvement in progression-free survival and an 11.8-month increase in overall survival.

Based on this study, the monoclonal antibody is being investigated in an ongoing phase III study and has received an FDA Breakthrough Therapy Designation.
