Abstract

Sarcomas are heterogeneous groups of tumors that are seen rarely. Although great efforts have been made to identify prognostic factors apart from grade, histology and tumor size, they're not so obvious yet. In this study, the prognostic role of serum matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 levels in patients with sarcoma was evaluated.
