Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine patient's safety (# of adverse events/serious adverse events) and tolerability of MM-111 in combination with multiple treatment regimens [ Time Frame: 30 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and any dose limiting toxicity (DLT) of MM-111 when administered in combination with either 1. cisplatin, capecitabine, and trastuzumab; 2. lapatinib +/- trastuzumab; 3. paclitaxel and trastuzumab 4. lapatinib, paclitaxel, trastuzumab; or 5. docetaxel and trastuzumab in patients with HER 2 positive solid tumors


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) profile of MM-111 when administered in combination with multiple treatment regimens. The PK profile will help to determine the phase 2 dose [ Time Frame: 33 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Treatment regimens include either: 1. cisplatin, capecitabine, and trastuzumab; 2. lapatinib +/- trastuzumab; 3. paclitaxel and trastuzumab; 4. lapatinib, paclitaxel, trastuzumab; or 5. docetaxel and trastuzumab in patients with HER2+ solid tumors.

  • To establish the recommended Phase 2 dose(s) of MM-111 when administered in each of the combinations assessed (based on PK profile, safety data and overall patient tolerability) [ Time Frame: 33 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
