The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, and highest safe doses of XL647 in combination with XL147 in adults with solid tumors. XL647 is a small molecule that potently inhibits multiple receptor kinases, including EGFR, VEGFR2 (KDR), and ErbB2. XL147 is a new chemical entity that inhibits PI3 Kinase. Inactivation of PI3K has been shown to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in tumor cells.

Further study details as provided by Exelixis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety, tolerability, and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of XL647 administered in combination with XL147 orally daily [ Time Frame: Assessed at periodic visits ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterize pharmacokinetic parameters of XL647 administered in combination with XL147 daily in subjects with solid tumors [ Time Frame: Assessed at periodic visits ]
  • Assess pharmacodynamic effects of the XL647 and XL147 combination regimen at the highest safe dose of these agents in subjects with non-small-cell lung cancer or breast cancer [ Time Frame: Assessed at periodic visits ]

  • Sexually active subjects (male and female) must agree to use accepted methods of contraception during the course of the study and for 3 months after the last dose of protocol drug(s).
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening.
  • Subjects in the MTD Expansion Cohort:

    • Must have measurable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST).
    • Must have a histologically confirmed diagnosis of NSCLC (Stage IIIB or IV) OR a histologically confirmed diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has received cytotoxic chemotherapy (including investigational cytotoxic chemotherapy) within 3 weeks (or nitrosoureas or mitomycin C within 6 weeks) before the first dose of XL647.
  • The subject has received prior treatment with a small molecule kinase inhibitor (including an investigational kinase inhibitor) within 14 days before the first dose of XL647.
