Official Title

A Phase II Study of Talimogene Laherparepvec (T-VEC) and Radiation in Localized Soft Tissue Sarcoma


This phase II trial studies the side effects of talimogene laherparepvec and radiation therapy and to see how well they work in treating patients with newly diagnosed soft tissue sarcoma that can be removed by surgery. Biological therapies, such as talimogene laherparepvec, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays, photons. electrons, or protons to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving talimogene laherparepvec and radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma.

    • Cohort 3: undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS)/ malignant fibrous histiosarcoma (MFH)
  2. Willingness to provide mandatory blood and tissue samples for correlative studies and central pathology confirmation of surgical specimens collected during study participation
  3. Willingness to provide a tissue sample that is mandatory at the time of surgery (if applicable) and the determination of the primary objective of the study

Exclusion Criteria
