Brief Summary:

Soft tissue sarcoma STS is a group of malignant tumors derived from connective tissue other than bone and cartilage. It can occur in any part of the body at any age, and there is no significant gender difference.According to pathological classification, STS has 19 tissue types and more than 50 disease subtypes.Currently, surgical resection, radiotherapy and drug therapy are the main treatment methods.But about 50% of the patients with distant metastasis happened not the surgical removal of, quite a number of in patients with distant metastasis after died of disease progression 8-12 months in drug treatment of soft tissue sarcoma, the current widely used chemotherapy regimens for ADM/IFO single-agent or joint IFO ADM is a line of chemotherapy, in addition, paclitaxel, gemcitabine, dorsey race, it was also used for soft tissue sarcomas of second-line chemotherapy scheme, however, for some special subtypes of sarcoma,Such as myxoid liposarcoma, pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, glandular soft tissue sarcoma and superficial malignant fibrous histiocytoma, are not sensitive to chemotherapy or low sensitivity.Therefore, how to improve the survival rate of these patients is an urgent problem to be solved.

Anlootinib hydrochloride is a multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has shown good efficacy in solid tumors such as NSCLC, ovarian cancer, soft tissue tumors, and medullary thyroid cancer.Especially in the field of soft tissue sarcomas, the results of phase IIb clinical data were satisfactory.Therefore, Investigator plan to conduct the study of anrotenil hydrochloride capsule for the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas with first-line chemotherapy failure (anthracycline)

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Anrotenil hydrochloride capsule
Anrotenil hydrochloride capsule was used to treat soft tissue sarcomas with first-line chemotherapy failure (doxorubicin + ifosfamide). Oral administration was conducted on an empty stomach before breakfast (12mg), and the drug was discontinued for 2 weeks for one week (3 weeks for one cycle) until the disease progressed or became intolerable.
Drug: Anlotinib Hydrochloride
The standard first-line chemotherapy regimen (adriamycin + ifosfamide) failed
Other Name: Oral administration of single drug on an empty stomach

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Median progression-free survival(mPFS) [ Time Frame: up to 12 months ]
    There are and only 50% of individuals who survive this time

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate(ORR) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The percentage of patients whose tumors have shrunk to a certain amount of time and stayed that way for a certain amount of time
