This study will evaluate the anti-tumour activity, safety and tolerability of RO4929097 as monotherapy in patients with recurrent or refractory non-small cell lung cancer. Patients will receive oral doses of RO4929097 of 80mg (cohort 1) or recommended Phase II dose (cohort 2) on a 3 days on 4 days off schedule. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Target sample size is <50.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumour blood flow and tumour metabolic response rate [ Time Frame: PET and CT assessments on day 4 (cycle 1) and day 16 (cycles 1 and 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic profile and pharmacodynamic parameters (e.g. changes in circulating endothelial and hematopoietic precursors) [ Time Frame: pharmacokinetics: cycle 1 on days 1, 2, 4, 10, 11, 16; cycle 2 on days 1, 2, 16\npharmacodynamics: cycle 1 on days 1, 2, 4, 11, 16; cycle 2 on days 1, 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Tumour response according to RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: assessments once every 2nd cycle on day 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability: AEs, laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: throughout study, laboratory assessments on days 1, 8 and 15 of each cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
