Clinical trials frequently include multiple end points that mature at different times. The initial report, typically based on the primary end point, may be published when key planned co-primary or secondary analyses are not yet available. Clinical Trial Updates provide an opportunity to disseminate additional results from studies, published in JCO or elsewhere, for which the primary end point has already been reported.

Neoadjuvant pazopanib in nonrhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas (ARST1321): A report of major wound complications from the Children's Oncology Group and NRG Oncology.

Kayton ML, Weiss AR, Xue W, Binitie O, Hayes Dixon A, Randall RL, Sorger JI, Hawkins DS, Spunt SL, Wang D, Million L, Terezakis S, Choy E, Okuno SH, Venkatramani R, Chen Y-L, Scharschmidt TJ.  Journal of Surgical Oncology 127: 871-881. 2023.
The impact upon wound healing of targeted molecular therapies, when incorporated into neoadjuvant therapy of soft tissue sarcoma, is largely unknown. The researchers describe wound complications following addition of pazopanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), to neoadjuvant radiotherapy (RT) +/− chemotherapy for soft tissue sarcoma. 

Conclusion: The addition of pazopanib to neoadjuvant chemotherapy and RT resulted in a higher wound complication rate following therapy of soft tissue sarcoma. The rate of grade III complications remained comparable to that reported in contemporary literature.
