This study will evaluate PTK787, a new oral drug that stops blood vessel development, in combination with Paclitaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors.
Drug: Paclitaxel plus PTK787
||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase I, Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic Trial of PTK787 and Paclitaxel in Combination for Advanced Solid Tumors
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of paclitaxel in combination with PTK787 [ Time Frame: Baseline through End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of paclitaxel alone and in combination with PTK787 from patients with cancer accrued to this study [ Time Frame: Baseline through End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Paclitaxel plus PTK787
Drug: Paclitaxel plus PTK787
Paclitaxel will be given on days 1 and 15 over 28 days in cycle 1 with PTK787 on days 3 to 28. PTK787 WILL BE TAKEN AT NIGHT.
In cycle 2 and beyond, paclitaxel will be given on days 1, 8 and 15 every 28 days . PTK787 will be taken orally NIGHTLY.

- Prior biologic or immunotherapy ≤ 2 weeks prior to registration. Patients must have recovered from all therapy-related toxicities
- Prior full pelvic field radiotherapy ≤ 4 weeks or limited field radiotherapy ≤ 2 weeks prior to randomization.
- Major surgery (i.e., laparotomy) ≤ 4 weeks prior to randomization. Minor surgery ≤ 2 weeks prior to randomization.
- Patients who have received investigational drugs ≤ 4 weeks prior to registration
- Prior therapy with anti-VEGF agents
- Peripheral neuropathy with functional impairment ≥ CTC grade 2 neuropathy, regardless of causality
- Pleural effusion or ascites that causes respiratory compromise (≥ CTC grade 2 dyspnea)
- Female patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, or adults of reproductive potential not employing an effective method of birth control.
- Patient agrees to avoid grapefruit (juice and fruit)
Any of the following concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical conditions which could compromise participation in the study:
- Uncontrolled high blood pressure, history of labile hypertension, or history of poor compliance with an antihypertensive regimen
- Unstable angina pectoris
- Congestive heart failure greater than NYHA classification ≥ Grade 1 (can be controlled with medication)
- Myocardial infarction ≤ 6 months prior to registration and/or randomization
- Serious uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia
- Uncontrolled diabetes at discretion of investigator
- Active or uncontrolled infection requiring intravenous antibiotics
- Interstitial pneumonia or extensive and symptomatic interstitial fibrosis of the lung
- Patients at risk of QT prolongation such as patients with congenital long QT syndrome or with long QTc at baseline (i.e. QTc greater than 450 msec in males, and greater than 470 msec in females) will be excluded
