Further study details as provided by Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals ):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: Dose limiting toxicities (DLT) and PK drug-drug interaction (DDI) measured during first 28 days of combined treatment for each treatment regimen and dose. [ Time Frame: first 28 days of combined treatment ]
  • Phase 2: Tumor response assessed by CT scans measured at baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment for each feasible dose/regimen determined in phase 1 [ Time Frame: at baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: Tumor response assessed by CT scans measured at baseline, monthly until month 4 then q2months until progression [ Time Frame: at baseline, monthly until month 4 then q2months until progression ]
  • Phase 2: Safety and steady state drug levels evaluated monthly [ Time Frame: Monthly ]
  • Phase 1 and 2: Exploratory Biomarker assessment from archival tumor tissue [ Time Frame: Dec 2009 ]
