A Phase II trial of the histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor sodium valproate with anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody maintenance in the first-line treatment of patients with RAS wild type metastatic colorectal cancer.
Purpose of the Study
Colorectal cancer is a major cause of cancer related deaths for which there is an urgent need to develop new treatments. The drug valproate has been to treat epilepsy and mood disorders for over 50 years. We have found that valproate can profoundly increase the anti-tumour activity of a class of drugs known as EGFR inhibitors in laboratory models of colon cancer. We will now test the activity of this drug combination in a phase II clinical trial in patients with advanced colon cancer.
