IMPACT STATEMENT:
Based on laboratory evidence that HDAC inhibition can help overcome chemoresistance, enhance chemotherapy induced cytotoxicity and decrease tumor cell proliferation, this clinical trial was designed as part of the SARC SPORE project 2. Mocetinostat was given along with Gemcitabine in patients with metastatic LMS who had documented progression after prior exposure to Gemcitabine. We showed feasibility, proof of principle activity, and safety for this combination.  However, the trial was terminated after completion of the first stage due to limited response rate observed at interim analysis.
