Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Dose Limiting Toxicities at Dose Level [ Time Frame: Measures taken at Cycle 01 (21-day cycle) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment Related Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), Deaths, and AEs Leading to Discontinuation [ Time Frame: From time of screening through post study follow-up at a maximum of 21 9-day cycles. Toxicity assessments occured at least every 4 weeks until all study drug related toxicities. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Hematology Results - Worst On-Study Grade [ Time Frame: Baseline (within 2 weeks of dosing), weekly, and within 72 hours prior to each subsequent 21-day cycle. If CTC Grade 4 hematologic toxicity is observed, complete blood count plus differential and platelets repeated every 3 days until resolution. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Mean Plasma Concentration of Ixabepilone at 40 mg/m2 Dose Level [ Time Frame: through 72 hours after start of infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Best Tumor Response, According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: At Baseline (up to 2 weeks prior to starting therapy), after every 2nd cycle, and at post study follow-upn after a maximum of 9 cycles. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
