Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of patupilone including any potential metabolite(s) in blood/plasma as well as the total radioactivity in blood and plasma. [ Time Frame: one week ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability will be assessed by AEs, SAEs and out of range lab values. [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks ]
  • Radiological scans will also be completed at approximately 6 weeks to asses anti-tumor activity. [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks ]
