The Biology of Synovial Sarcoma: State-of-the-Art and Future Perspectives.

Curr Treat Options Oncol 2021 10 23;22(12):109. Epub 2021 Oct 23.

IRCCS Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria di Bologna, via Massarenti 9, 40138, Bologna, Italy.

Opinion Statement: New molecular insights are being achieved in synovial sarcoma (SS) that can provide new potential diagnostic and prognostic markers as well as therapeutic targets. In particular, the advancement of research on epigenomics and gene regulation is promising. The concrete hypothesis that the pathogenesis of SS might mainly depend on the disruption of the balance of the complex interaction between epigenomic regulatory complexes and the consequences on gene expression opens interesting new perspectives.
