This trial will investigate the combination of bevacizumab, and erlotinib in patients with adenocarcinoma or poorly differentiated carcinoma of unknown primary site. Bevacizumab and erlotinib are relatively well-tolerated and have non-overlapping toxicity profiles. This trial will be one of the first clinical trials to evaluate a combination of targeted agents in the treatment of a solid tumor.
