This study will determine the safety and efficacy of R1507 in combination with letrozole in patients with advanced breast cancer. In the first part of the study a cohort of patients with advanced breast cancer will receive letrozole 2.5mg po daily in combination with R1507 16mg/kg every 3 weeks. A second cohort of patients who have either progressed or plateaued on letrozole treatment will receive 3-weekly cycles of combination treatment with letrozole and R1507. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, and the target sample size is <100 individuals.
