The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest safe dose of the combination of TAS-106 and carboplatin that can be given to patients with advanced cancer or cancer that has spread.


Primary Objectives:

To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of the combination of TAS-106 and carboplatin administered by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks.

To perform Pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis of TAS-106 and carboplatin

Secondary objectives:

To assess the antitumor activity of TAS-106 combined with carboplatin

To investigate the relationship between selected biomarkers and efficacy and safety outcomes.
