The primary objective of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase II doses of sapacitabine and seliciclib administered sequentially. The secondary objectives are to evaluate antitumor activity of this sequential treatment and to explore the pharmacodynamic effect of this treatment in skin and peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
