This is a phase I study to determine the safety, tolerability and recommended phase II dose of ARQ 197 given in combination with erlotinib as primary endpoints in CYP2C19 poor metabolizer patients with advanced/recurrent non-small-cell lung cancer. The pharmacokinetic profile and antitumor activity of ARQ 197 administered alone or in combination with erlotinib will also be determined as secondary endpoints.
