Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and Dose-Limiting Toxicities (DLT) of Combination Treatment with Sirolimus and Cetuximab [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MTD defined by DLTs that occur in the first cycle (4 weeks). DLT defined as any clinically grade 3 or 4 non-hematologic toxicity as defined in the NCI CTC v3.0, expected and believed to be related to the study medications (except nausea and vomiting, electrolyte imbalances responsive to appropriate regimens or alopecia), any grade 4 hematologic toxicity lasting at least 3 weeks or longer (as defined by the NCI-CTC v3.0) or associated with bleeding and/or sepsis; any grade 4 nausea or vomiting > 5 days despite maximum anti-nausea regimens, and any other grade 3 non-hematologic toxicity including symptoms/signs of vascular leak or cytokine release syndrome; or any severe or life-threatening complication or abnormality not defined in the NCI-Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Effects (CTCAE) v3.0 that is attributable to therapy.
