Trametinib Trial

Trametinib in Treating Patients With Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma That Is Metastatic, Locally Advanced, or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery. Identifier:  NCT03148275

For the last several years Dr.Brian Rubin has been working on unlocking genetic driving mechanism behind EHE progression. His work resulted in identification of a pathway directly involved in supporting of EHE genetic malfunction. During the Lab experiments, Dr Rubin was able to disrupt this pathway with MEK inhibitor.

The clinical trial uses MEK inhibitor Mekinist. The purpose of the study to verify that what Dr.Rubin observed in his Lab actually translates in clinical effect in EHE patients. It is a multi institutional study which makes it very easy for enrollment in different parts of the country. You can see more information using following link.

Eribulin in Angiosarcoma and Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (EHE) Identifier: NCT03331250

This research study is studying a drug as a possible treatment for Angiosarcoma or Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE).

-The drug involved in this study is Eribulin

In this research study, the investigators are studying how safe and effective eribulin is in participants with Angiosarcoma or EHE.

Eribulin was created to mimic the structure of a chemical that is released from a sea sponge. The investigators believe that this drug has anti-cancer effects on tumors by blocking proteins called microtubules, among other functions. It may work by preventing the cancer cells from dividing and eventually cause the tumor cells to die similar to other drugs that target microtubules
