Osteosarcoma is the most common type of primary bone cancer affecting adolescents and children attributed to rapid bone growth and turnover with a peak incidence at 18 years old. it is a rare incurable and often fatal disease. The current osteosarcoma treatments include standard chemotherapy, limb salvage surgery or amputation. The 5-year relative survival rate is 70% for localized forms, however, metastasis is present in about one fifth to one quarter of patients at diagnosis, which then contributes to a 5-year survival rate of around 20%. The survival statistics have remained constant with no advances in treatment options for decades highlighting the need for new therapeutic options.
