Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) at each dose level [ Time Frame: 22-28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety measured by type, frequency and severity of adverse drug reactions [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety measures by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE)

  • Preliminary Efficacy od BGT226 [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measured by Response Evaluation criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)

  • Percent of patients in which an altered molecular status is detected for markers related to Pl3K signaling [ Time Frame: Baseline, every 3 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Biomarkers: Percentage of change, pre- versus post-treatment [ Time Frame: Every month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
