Sarcoma UK research

Welcome to Sarcoma UK’s Clinical Trials Hub. Here you’ll find you all you need to know about sarcoma clinical trials in the UK, how you can get involved and if clinical trials are right for you. 

We want more clinical trials for sarcoma. There are only a small number of sarcoma trials open at any one time and Sarcoma UK want to ensure that all patients have access to clinical trials where possible. 

If you are a clinician or researcher who would like to submit a sarcoma clinical trial to add to our clinical trials list, please email trials@sarcoma.org.uk or call 0207 250 8271.

Please note: Many clinical trials are being affected by COVID-19.
This may mean that trial sites are delaying or pausing recruitment of patients, or that they are making changes for the patients already recruited. If you are already involved in a trial, you can contact your doctor or healthcare team directly for the latest updates.
