Neeta Somaiah, MD
Neeta Somaiah, MD, assistant professor, Department of Sarcoma Medical Oncology, Division of Cancer Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the expression of NY-ESO-1 in patients with soft tissue sarcoma.
There were previous studies looking at the NY-ESO-1 expression across different sarcoma subtypes, explains Somaiah. However, the percentage of NY-ESO-1 expression in those other subtypes is around 30% whereas it is around 80% to 100% for soft tissue sarcoma.
