I. To determine the feasibility and tolerability of beta-adrenergic blockade in patients with metastatic or locally advanced cancer.
II. To determine the effects of beta-adrenergic blockade on the tumor microenvironment and host immune system via a series of correlative laboratory studies using cancer tumor tissue and peripheral blood mononuclear cells from the study patients.
I. Evaluate the effects of beta-adrenergic blockade on progression-free survival and overall survival.
Patients receive propranolol hydrochloride orally (PO) twice daily (BID) for 4 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for up to 1 year.

Experimental: Treatment (propranolol hydrochloride)
Patients receive propranolol hydrochloride PO BID for 4 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Propranolol will be administered on an out-patient basis. Blood for correlative studies (30 ml - green top tube) will be drawn at baseline and at each clinic visit. Tumor tissue for analysis will be obtained via core needle biopsy (or other appropriate modality) pre-study and at approximately the two month time point.
Drug: propranolol hydrochloride
Other Name: Inderal
Other: Correlative Studies
Correlative studies will be conducted using the following materials:
- Incidence of toxicity graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) V. 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]A dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) will be considered as any grade 3 or higher hematologic or non- hematologic toxicity that is probably or definitely related to treatment.
- Change in vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 4 months ]
- Effect of beta-adrenergic blockade on the tumor microenvironment [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]Measured via a series of correlative laboratory studies using cancer tumor tissue and peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
- Effect of beta-adrenergic blockade on the host immune system [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months ]Measured via a series of correlative laboratory studies using cancer tumor tissue and peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
