1. Primary Objective:
The primary endpoint to this study will be to document the toxicities, and reversibility of toxicities, of this regimen of hydralazine and valproic acid in patients with advanced, unresectable, previously treated lung cancers, for whom no acceptable standard therapy is available. A primary endpoint will be to determine any potential dose limiting toxicities, and the Maximal Tolerated Dose of this regimen.
2. Secondary Objectives:
The secondary endpoint of this study will be to determine any potential anti-tumor effects, as determined by the objective tumor response (complete and partial responses), clinical benefit (complete and partial responses, and clinical benefit), the time to tumor response, the time to tumor progression, and the overall survival.
This study will be an open-label, non-randomized, dose-escalation phase I trial which will enroll in sequential cohorts.

RATIONALE: Valproic acid may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether valproic acid is more effective than observa...
RATIONALE: Drugs such as valproic acid may make thyroid cancers more radioiodine sensitive, which will allow for detection of tumor and make further ablation treatment effective.
The primary aim of this study is to determine if the addition of valproic acid to a combination of adriamycin, cyclophosphamide and vindesine could increase progression-free survival in pa...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of multiple doses of the UGT inhibitor valproic acid on the single-dose pharmacokinetics of BIIB074. The secondary objectives ...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as decitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Valproi...
Acetylation levels of histones are the result of the balance between histone acetyltransfrases and histone deacetylases activities, which plays an important role in chromatin remodeling and regulation...
BACKGROUND Hydralazine is an effective antihypertensive agent but may rarely have devastating hepatotoxic effects that are extremely variable, thus making the diagnosis difficult. CASE REPORT We repor...
In the study, the effect of valproic acid on serum free/acylcarnitine levels and left ventricular systolic function in pediatric patients with idiopathic epilepsy receiving valproic acid was investiga...
Although rare, symptomatic hyperammonemia is sometimes associated with valproic acid (VPA), especially in children. L-carnitine (levocarnitine), sometimes classified as an essential amino acid, is vit...
Lung cancer is the common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Platinum-based chemotherapy is the cornerstone of treatment for lung cancer. Platinum sensitivity is a major possibility for effectiv...
A fatty acid with anticonvulsant properties used in the treatment of epilepsy. The mechanisms of its therapeutic actions are not well understood. It may act by increasing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID levels in the brain or by altering the properties of voltage dependent sodium channels.
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
