  Purpose
  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.

Intervention Details:
    Drug: Hydralazine and Valproic Acid
    Hydralazine 25 mg PO daily, days 1-28 Valproic acid 250 mg PO TID for days -14 through -8, then 500 mg PO TID daily for days -7 through 28, with the dose titrated to keep the serum level between 0.4 and 0.7 mM.
