  • Have the presence of measurable or nonmeasurable disease as defined by Modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)
  • Have adequate hematologic, renal, and hepatic organ function
  • Have a performance status of less than or equal to 2 on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) scale
  • Have discontinued all previous therapies for cancer, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or other investigational therapy for at least 14 days (42 days for mitomycin-C or nitrosoureas) prior to study enrollment and recovered from the acute effects of therapy
  • Males and females with reproductive potential must agree to use medically approved contraceptive precautions during the trial and for 3 months following the last dose of study drug.
  • Females with child bearing potential must have had a negative serum pregnancy test less than or equal to 7 days prior to the first dose of study drug.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have received treatment within 14 days of the initial dose of study drug with a drug that has not received regulatory approval for any indication
  • Have a history of major surgical resection involving the stomach or small bowel, or have serious preexisting medical conditions (based on judgment of the investigator)
  • Have symptomatic central nervous system malignancy or metastasis (screening is not required)
  • Have a diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)
  • Have an active hematologic malignancy other than lymphoma

  • Concurrent administration of any immunosuppressive therapy
  • Females who are pregnant or lactating
  • Have received, within 7 days of the initial dose of study drug, either grapefruit juice or treatment with a drug that is a known inhibitor or inducer of Cytochrome P450 Enzyme 3A4 (CYP3A4). In addition, patients should not receive grapefruit juice or treatment with a CYP3A4 inhibitor or inducer during the study
