1) To assess the efficacy of adjuvant sunitinib malate or adjuvant valproic acid used for 6 months to improve overall survival (OS) at 2 years in patients with high-risk uveal melanoma.
- To assess the efficacy of adjuvant sunitinib malate and adjuvant valproic acid used for 6 months in preventing the development of distal metastases (relapse-free survival, RFS) in patients with high-risk uveal melanoma.
- To confirm the safety and tolerability of 6 months of adjuvant sunitinib and adjuvant valproic acid in patients with high-risk uveal melanoma.
- To assess the quality of life during the adjuvant treatment.
1) To determine whether blood myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) concentration and other inflammatory cytokines correlates with OS and RFS.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients receive sunitinib malate orally (PO) daily for 6 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive valproic acid PO daily for 6 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Time of definitive treatment of the primary tumor until death from any cause, assessed at 2 years ]
- Relapse-free survival [ Time Frame: Time of definitive treatment of the primary tumor until confirmed metastatic relapse or death from any cause, assessed at 2 years ]
- Tolerability [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Defined as the proportion of patients able to complete 6 months of treatment, including those who underwent dose reduction
