Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies best dose and side effects of CBL0137 in treating patients with extremity melanoma or sarcoma that has spread to other places in the body. Drugs, such as CBL0137, may work by binding to tumor cell deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) to stop the cell from growing further.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and examine the dose-limiting toxicities of intra-arterial facilitates chromatin transcription (FACT) complex-targeting curaxin CBL0137 (CBL0137) in patients with advanced extremity melanoma or sarcoma.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the tumor response in advanced melanoma and sarcoma patients treated with intra-arterial administration of CBL0137.

II. To define both response in-field (area of the limb distal to the infusion point) and out-of-field (any area proximal to the infusion point) in patients treated with CBL0137 based intra-arterial infusion.

III. Assess the pharmacokinetics of CBL0137 in the study population pre-and post CBL0137 intraarterial infusion.

IV. Assess tumor protein expression profiles before and after treatment with CBL0137.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess if the proposed treatment has any effect on quality of life as measured by the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy ? Melanoma (assessment tool also applicable to sarcoma).

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of FACT complex-targeting curaxin CBL0137.

Patients receive FACT complex-targeting curaxin CBL0137 intra-arterially (IA) over 15 minutes.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 2, 6 and 12 weeks, every 3 months for 12 months, then at 24 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :

    Responses will be tabulated, and complete response rate will be estimated with its exact 80% confidence interval.

  2. Duration of tumor response (both in the field of infusion therapy and out-of-field) assessed by RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
  3. Duration of regional progression free survival (PFS) assessed by RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
  4. Overall PFS assessed by RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
  5. Incidence and type of adverse events assessed using NCI CTCAE v.5 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
  6. Incidence of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 24 months ]
    Changes in clinical laboratory values while receiving CBL0137

  7. Incidence of Adverse events [ Time Frame: At pre- and post-intraarterial infusion assessed up to 24 months ]
    Drug safety

  8. Tumor levels of p53^Ser392 and HSP70 assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Quality of life (QOL) measured using the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy - Melanoma (FACT-M v.4) and the associated Melanoma Cancer subscale (MCS) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Median and range baseline subscale and total QOL scores, as well as single item scores, will be presented, followed by mean change scores for subscales, the total scale and single items, compared between different study intervention groups.

  2. Quality of life (QOL) measured using the associated Melanoma Cancer subscale (MCS) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Median and range baseline subscale and total QOL scores, as well as single item scores, will be presented, followed by mean change scores for subscales, the total scale and single items, compared between different study intervention groups.

  3. Melanoma-related symptoms measured using the FACT-M v.4 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
  4. Melanoma-related symptoms measured using the associated Melanoma Cancer Subscale [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
