Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of dasatinib in treating patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that are metastatic or cannot be removed by surgery. Dasatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Detailed Description:


I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of dasatinib in patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment.

II. To estimate the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of this drug in patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment.

III. To assess the safety profile and dose-limiting toxicities (if any) of dasatinib in patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment.


I. To describe any antitumor efficacy associated with dasatinib administration in patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment.

II. To examine whether the pharmacokinetic clearance of dasatinib correlates with hepatic function as assessed by Child-Pugh Criteria, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Organ Dysfunction Working Group Criteria, or other assessments of liver function.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive dasatinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 28 days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerated dose of dasatinib, defined as the highest dose level at which less than 33% of 6-9 evaluable patients experience dose-limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Toxicity will be graded according to the NCI CTCAE v3.0.

  2. Pharmacokinetic parameters of dasatinib [ Time Frame: Days 1 and 8 of course 1 ]
    Area under curve (AUC)(to infinity), AUC(to 24 hours), and maximum concentration (Cmax) analyzed in the natural log scale. For each PK parameter, the mean difference between the recommended dose for a liver impairment group and the normal liver function group dosed at 140 mg OD (equivalent to ratios of geometric means in the non-log scale) will be tested against 0 at a one-sided 0.05 significance level to detect an increase in the liver impairment group (equivalent to a 2-sided 90% confidence interval).

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Liver dysfunction data [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The Child-Pugh classification (CPC), NCI Organ Dysfunction Working Group (ODWG) Stratification Criteria for all patients will be collected at baseline and correlated to the toxicities and pharmacokinetic data seen with dasatinib in an exploratory analysis. Clearance estimates for each liver impairment group based upon the NCI ODWG Criteria, CPC Scheme, will be correlated with drug clearance. Ultimately, the predictive value of these various different methods of grouping organ dysfunction patients will be compared to determine if any method is better able to predict dasatinib clearance.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically or cytologically confirmed solid tumor or lymphoma that is metastatic or unresectable and for which standard curative or palliative measures do not exist or are no longer effective; patients with a liver mass, elevated alpha-fetoprotein level (>= 500 ng/mL) and positive serology for viral hepatitis, consistent with a diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma will be eligible without the need for pathologic confirmation of the diagnosis; all solid and lymphoma tumor types are eligible
  • Patients must have measurable or non-measurable disease; x-rays and/or scans for disease assessment must have been completed within 28 days (for measurable disease) or 42 days (for non-measurable disease) prior to registration; all disease must be assessed and documented on the web-based Baseline Tumor Assessment Form
  • Patients with brain metastases who require corticosteroids must be on stable or decreasing dose of corticosteroids; patients with known brain metastases must have had brain irradiation (whole brain or gamma knife); patients with untreated (non-irradiated) brain metastases are not eligible; patients on enzyme-inducing anticonvulsant medications (e.g. phenobarbital, phenytoin or carbamazepine) are not eligible
  • Patients must not be taking H2-receptor antagonists such as cimetidine, ranitidine, and famotidine, or any proton pump inhibitors, such as omeprazole, lansoprazole, esomeprazole, and pantoprazole; patients must stop these medications within 7 days prior to starting treatment
  • Patients must not have had anticancer therapy including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, or investigational agent within 4 weeks prior to registration, except for targeted agents with half-life known to be < 24 hours; patients must not have had targeted agents with half-life < 24 hours within 2 weeks prior to registration; patients also must have recovered from serious adverse events due to agents administered within these acceptable time frames
  • Patients must not be planning to receive concurrent radiation, other chemotherapy, immune therapy or any other investigational agents for malignancy while receiving protocol treatment; hormonal treatment for prostate carcinoma may be continued and bisphosphonate treatment for bone disease is permitted
  • Patient must not have received prior therapy with dasatinib (BMS-354825)
  • Patients for whom there is a strong suspicion of being allergic to dasatinib because of a history of allergic reactions to similar compounds are not eligible
  • Patients must not have had major surgical procedures within the last 4 weeks prior to the first planned dose of study drug
  • Patients must not be taking therapeutic doses of anticoagulants; low dose warfarin for port prophylaxis is permitted
  • Zubrod performance status of 0-2
