The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of Tarceva (erlotinib hydrochloride) that can safely be given in combination with Velcade (bortezomib). The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.
Drug: Erlotinib Hydrochloride
||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
- Tumor Response [ Time Frame: Evaluation of response after two 21-day cycles of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: Continuous assessment of safety throughout entire study period and determination of dose-limiting toxicities during and at the end of 21 Day Cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||April 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Experimental: Erlotinib + Bortezomib
Up to 4 dose levels of study drug combination tested with 3-6 participants enrolled at each dose level. Erlotinib beginning dose of 150 mg taken by mouth daily for 21-day cycle. Bortezomib beginning dose of 1. mg/m^2 by vein over about 1-5 minutes on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of each 21-day cycle.
Drug: Erlotinib Hydrochloride
Beginning dose of 150 mg taken by mouth daily for 21-day cycle.
Beginning dose of 1. mg/m^2 by vein over about 1-5 minutes on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of each 21-day cycle.
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Patients with pathologically confirmed advanced or metastatic cancer that is refractory to standard therapy, relapsed after standard therapy, or who have had no standard therapy that induces a CR rate of at least 10% or improves survival by at least three months.
- Measurable or non-measurable disease.
- Patients must be >/= 6 wks beyond treatment with a nitrosourea or mitomycin-C, >/= 4 wks beyond other chemotherapy or XRT, and must have recovered to </= Grade 1 toxicity for any treatment-limiting toxicity resulting from prior therapy. (Exception: patients may have received palliative low dose XRT one week before treatment provided it is not given to the only targeted lesions).
- (continued from above) Also, patients who have received non-chemotherapeutic biological agents will need to wait at least 5 half-lives or 4 wks, whichever is shorter, from the last day of treatment.
- ECOG performance status </= 2 (Karnofsky >/= 60%)
- Patients must have normal organ and marrow function defined as: absolute neutrophil count >/=1,000/mL; platelets >/=50,000/mL; creatinine </= 2 X ULN; total bilirubin </= 2.0; ALT(SGPT) </= 3 X ULN; Exception for patients with liver metastasis: total bilirubin </= 3 x ULN; ALT(SGPT) </= 5 X ULN.
- Women of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 30 days after the last dose.
- Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
- For the MTD expansion cohort, patients will be eligible if they meet one of the following criteria: (I) Have an EGFR-sensitive mutation and have been previously treated with EGFR inhibitor therapy but have subsequently developed resistance, OR (II) Have an EGFR-resistant mutation, OR (III) Do not have an EGFR mutation, but have benefited from EGFR inhibitor therapy (including either >/=4 months of stable disease [SD] OR a >/= partial response [PR]).
- Patients with uncontrolled concurrent illness, including but not limited to: ongoing or active infection; altered mental status or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements and/or obscure study results.
- Uncontrolled systemic vascular hypertension (systolic blood pressure > 140 mm Hg, diastolic blood pressure > 90 mm Hg on medication).
- Patients with clinically significant cardiovascular disease: history of CVA within 6 months, myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 6 months, or unstable angina pectoris.
- Patients with colorectal carcinoma with tumors that demonstrate a KRAS mutation.
- Pregnant or lactating women.
- Patients with a history of bone marrow transplant within the previous two years.
- Patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug products.
- Patients unable to swallow oral medications or with pre-existing gastrointestinal disorders that might interfere with proper absorption of oral drugs.
- Patients with major surgery within 30 days prior to entering the study.
