Are you interested in learning more about the clinical trials offered for the treatment of sarcoma? Join us November 29th as we discuss the “CLINICAL TRIAL BASICS” with current Leiomyosarcoma warrior Jennifer Ensey.

Jennifer has participated in two clinical trials in additional to multiple other treatment options. Her aggressive and proactive approach to her treatment process has kept her sarcoma at bay for over 7 years. LIVE on Facebook Thursday November 29th Jennifer will explain what a trial is, how to choose a trial, and her experience as a patient in sarcoma clinical trials.

This series will also include a question & answer segment. Questions for Jennifer pertaining to clinical trials or her story can be submitted by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will answer as many questions as possible during the video presentation. Some questions may be answered in follow-up sessions or directly via email.

Jennifer received the following treatments/medication during clinical trials:

  • Tribectedin - Now FDA Approved for Sarcoma Treatment -On October 23, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved trabectedin(Yondelis®) for the treatment of two subtypes of soft tissue sarcomas: liposarcoma and leiomyosarcoma. The approval is for patients whose cancers are advanced or cannot be removed by surgery and who have already been treated with anthracycline-based chemotherapy.
