Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusions Criteria:

  1. Written informed consent in accordance with federal, local, and institutional guidelines
  2. Age ≥18 years
  3. Dose Escalation Phase: Patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors for which no standard therapy is available. For Schedule 6 only: patients with colorectal cancer with liver metastasis.

    Dose Expansion Phase: Previously treated, metastatic or advanced recurrent malignancy with 1 of the following diagnoses, which has been confirmed histologically or cytologically:

    • Up to 12 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer with a history of progression or recurrence following prior fluoropyrimidine, irinotecan and platinum containing regimens as well as bevacizumab. In addition, patients with Kras wild type tumor must have received at least one EGFR blocker.
    • Up to 6 patients with histological or cytological documentation of advanced ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma with a history of progression or recurrence following at least one prior platinum and one taxane based chemotherapy
    • Up to 12 patients with incurable Squamous cell cancers as follows:

      1. A minimum of 4 Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Sq-NSCLC)
      2. A minimum of 4 Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Head and Neck (Sq-HNC)
      3. Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix (SqCC) All patient with Squamous Cell Carcinomas should have a documented history of progression or recurrence following at least one prior platinum based chemotherapy or chemotherapy/radiation containing regimen
    • Up to 6 patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) that was pathologically confirmed as adenocarcinoma of the prostate and with evidence of metastatic disease on bone scan or other imaging. Patient must have progressive disease after at least one hormonal treatment and one cytotoxic therapy e.g. with docetaxel, mitoxantrone.
    • Up to 6 patients with recurrent/relapsed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM/AnaA) or with grade 3 anaplastic astrocytomas that with a history of progression or recurrence following radiotherapy and an alkylating agent (e.g. temozolomide) Patients with other disease types may be enrolled into the expansion phase upon approval of the Sponsor.
  4. Dose Escalation Phase: Patients have exhausted, or be deemed to not benefit from, further conventional therapy and have evidence of progressive disease on study entry.

    Both Doses Escalation and Expansion Phases: There is no upper limit on the number of prior treatments provided all inclusion/exclusion criteria are met. Hormone ablation therapy is considered an anticancer regimen. Radiation and surgery are not considered anticancer regimens.

  5. Except for patients with GBM/AnaA in the Expansion Phase Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG)Performance Status of 0 1 (Appendix 1). For patients with GBM/ AnaA in the Expansion Phase Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 2 (Appendix 1).
  6. Adequate hematopoietic function: total white blood cell (WBC) count ≥3000/mm3, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1500/mm3, and platelet count ≥100,000/mm3.
  7. Adequate hepatic function: bilirubin <2 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) (except patients with Gilbert's syndrome who must have a total bilirubin of < 3 times ULN) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) <2.5 times ULN. In the case of known (radiological and/or biopsy documented) liver metastasis, ALT <5.0 times ULN is acceptable;
  8. Adequate renal function: estimated creatinine clearance of ≥ 30 mL/min, calculated using the formula of Cockcroft and Gault: (140-Age) • Mass (kg)/(72 • creatinine mg/dL); multiply by 0.85 if female.
  9. Female patients of child-bearing potential must agree to use dual methods of contraception and have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening, and male patients must use an effective barrier method of contraception if sexually active with a female of child-bearing potential. Acceptable methods of contraception are condoms with contraceptive foam, oral, implantable or injectable contraceptives, contraceptive patch, intrauterine device, diaphragm with spermicidal gel, or a sexual partner who is surgically sterilized or post-menopausal. For both male and female patients, effective methods of contraception must be used throughout the study and for three months following the last dose.
  10. For GBM/AnaA patients only: up to 100mg prednisone daily dose is acceptable to enroll in this study.

  7. Known active hepatitis A, B, or C infection; or known to be positive for HCV RNA or HBsAg (HBV surface antigen);
  8. Except for patients with GBM/ AnaA in the Expansion Phase, patients with active CNS malignancy are excluded. Asymptomatic small lesions are not considered active. Treated lesions may be considered inactive if they are stable for at least 3 months.

  10. Grade ≥2 peripheral neuropathy within 14 days prior to Cycle 1 Day 1.
  11. Except for patients with GBM/AnaA in the Expansion Phase: History of seizures, movement disorders or cerebrovascular accident within the past 5 years prior to cycle 1 day 1.
  12. Patients with macular degeneration, uncontrolled glaucoma, or markedly decreased visual acuity
  13. In the opinion of the investigator, patients who are significantly below their ideal body weight.
  14. Serious psychiatric or medical conditions that could interfere with treatment;
  15. Participation in an investigational anti-cancer study within 3 weeks prior to first dose of study drug;
