Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. number of patients with a response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Primary Response Criteria (RECIST 1.1) Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) must have reduction in short axis to <10 mm. Partial Response (PR): At least a 30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters. Progressive Disease (PD): At least a 20% increase in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum on study (this includes the baseline sum if that is the smallest on study). In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. (Note: the appearance of one or more new lesions is also considered progressions). Stable Disease [1]: Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD, taking as reference the smallest sum diameters whi le on study.

  • Be willing to comply with clinical trial instructions and requirements.
  • Patients ≥ 18 years must be willing to comply with the mandatory biopsies.
  • Patients must have a histologically confirmed metastatic and/or locally advanced sarcoma by the enrolling institution.
  • For histological specific cohorts, patients must have confirmed metastatic and/or locally advanced osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma/malignant fibrous histiocytoma high grade myxofibrosarcoma, vascular sarcoma, alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS), dedifferentiated/pleomorphic liposarcoma, Small Blue Round CellSynovial, or leiomyosarcoma (LMS) by the enrolling institution.

    • Participants ≥16 years ECOG 0 or 1/KPS 100-70%
    • Participants <12-15 years Lanksky 100-70%
  • Patients must have at least one prior line of systemic therapy (e.g.chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted or biological therapy) for their sarcoma if standard treatment is appropriate. Treatment naïve patients may be enrolled if they have refused standard systemic treatment. Prior adjuvant therapy will not count provided it was completed more than 6 months previously.
  • Presence of measureable disease per RECIST v1.1.Target lesions must not be chosen from a previously irradiated field unless there has been radiographically and/or pathologically documented tumor progression in that lesion prior to enrollment.
  • On echocardiogram, documented left ventricular ejection fraction >45%. Patients may instead have a multigated acquisition (MUGA) scan instead of transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE).
  • Adequate organ function
  • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) † must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test at screening and ≤ 72 hours prior to day 1 of study treatment. If the urine pregnancy test is positive or cannot be confirmed as negative, a serum pregnancy test will be required.

    † A woman of childbearing potential is a sexually mature female who: has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e. has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months).

  • Male patients with WOCBP partners and female patients of childbearing potential must be willing to use an adequate method of contraception as outlined in Section 11.9, for the course of the study through 7 months (male participants) or 5 months (female participants) after the last dose of study medication.

Note: Abstinence is acceptable if this is the usual lifestyle and preferred contraception for the patient.
