Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine a RP2D for CS-7017 administered orally twice daily to patients with advanced or metastatic malignancies. [ Time Frame: 6 to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To document the safety profile of CS-7017 administered orally twice daily; [ Time Frame: 6 to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the PK of repeated oral doses of CS-7017 activity [ Time Frame: weekly for the first 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To explore potential biomarkers of CS-7017 activity [ Time Frame: 6 to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To make preliminary assessments of the anti-tumor effects of CS-7107 administered twice daily [ Time Frame: 6 to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
