SB939 in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors
RATIONALE: SB939 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of SB939 in treating patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

|Official Title:||A Phase I Clinical and Pharmacokinetic Study of SB939 in Patients With Advanced Cancer|
- Recommended phase II dose [ Time Frame: Each dose level ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Assess for safety, tolerability, toxicity profile and dose limiting toxicities
- Safety [ Time Frame: Each dose level ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Safety, tolerability, toxicity profile, dose limiting toxicities of SB939.
- Pharmacokinetic profile [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 day 1 and 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Samples collected over multiple timepoints
- SB939 effects on histone H3 acetylation [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 days 1 and 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Levels of AcH3 will be determined using wetern Blot, immunohistochemistry or Elisa method.
|Study Start Date:||June 2007|
|Study Completion Date:||June 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Drug: HDAC inhibitor SB939
- To determine the recommended phase II dose of oral SB939 in patients with solid tumors.
- To determine the toxic effects of SB939 and its association with dose and pharmacokinetics.
- To assess the pharmacokinetic profile of SB939.
- To assess preliminary evidence of antitumor effects of SB939 in patients with measurable disease as documented by objective response.
- To establish proof-of-principle for SB939 effects on histone acetylation by evaluation of histone acetylation and other biomarkers in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) at all dose levels.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral SB939 once daily on days 1-5 and 15-19. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients undergo blood sample collection periodically during course 1 for pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies. Samples are analyzed for levels of SB939 via LC-MS/MS method and levels of acetylated histone 3 (AcH3), target effect, downstream consequences, and tumor response via western blot, immunohistochemistry, or ELISA methods.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 4 weeks and then every 3 months thereafter.
