My husband was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in Aug. 2003. He is 37 years old, and the primary tumor was in his thigh, but it had already metastasized to both lungs. He has endured 4 different chemo regimines for the metastases with no success (all the standards . . .adriamycin, ifosfamide, gemzar, etc. too many to list).
He starts taking Gleevec this Friday as part of a clinical trial at Sloan Kettering. Has anyone else tried this or heard if there are any results yet for Gleevec & non-GIST sarcomas? Any info. would be appreciated.
