Temodar and Avastin for fibrous tumor/ hemangiopericytoma – pro

Hemangiopericytomas and malignant solitary fibrous tumors (HPC/SFT) are rare, closely related sarcomas with unpredictable behavior that respond infrequently to chemotherapy. Because of the vascular compnent, Avastin may be active in this disease.  Several reports and small studies have explored it in variosu combiantions, inluding with temazolamide. A recent retrosepctive review of 14 patients*Park et al) concluded: “Combination therapy with temozolomide and bevacizumab is a generally well-tolerated and clinically beneficial regimen for HPC/SFT patients. Additional investigation in a controlled, prospective trial is warranted.”
