The Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration (SARC) in partnership with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is currently recruiting patients for its Phase II trial (SARC-022) of Linsitinib (OSI-906), an IGF-1R inhibitor.

Linsitinib is targeted at patients with either Pediatric or Adult Wildtype GIST, and participants in the trial must have a confirmation of one of these mutations to participate in the trial. The trial is currently ongoing both at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.
