At the OSUCCC – James, cancer research experts focus on studying Kaposi sarcoma prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. With one of the top sarcoma research programs in the country, the OSUCCC – James consistently paves the way in learning more about what causes Kaposi sarcoma — leading to even more highly targeted prevention, care and treatment.
Kaposi Sarcoma Screening & Diagnosis
Cancer screening exams can help find Kaposi sarcoma at its earliest stage when the chances for successful treatment, optimal outcomes and fewer side effects are greatest. These tests are usually done when a patient is healthy and has no specific symptoms.
Not only are expert cancer researchers at the OSUCCC – James continually working to detect and diagnose Kaposi sarcoma early, but they are also developing additional tests to detect and diagnose cancer even earlier, leading to improved outcomes, faster responses and fewer side effects.
Once sarcoma has been diagnosed, each patient meets with dedicated medical, surgical and radiation oncology experts – all in one day – who sub-specialize in treating sarcoma patients, so that a precise treatment path can be designed and begun right away.
Additionally, the OSUCCC – James partners with Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the OSU Wexner Medical Center to offer world-renowned sarcoma expertise in one of the top integrated pediatric and adult sarcoma care programs anywhere in the country.
