The goal of this clinical research study is to find out if giving azacitidine with valproic acid plus carboplatin can help control advanced cancer. The safety of this treatment will be studied as well. Researchers will also collect some extra blood samples for molecular marker studies (studies that may help researchers predict how participants respond to the combined therapy).
There were to be two phases of this study: a Phase 1 portion to find acceptable doses of the study drug combination, and a Phase 2 portion to study the response rates to the treatment schedule. The study did not proceed to the Phase 2 portion.
