- Observation of CTCAE grade 4 or higher adverse events in six patients [ Time Frame: Duration of phase I portion, approximately six months ]In the phase I portion, six patients will be enrolled and observed for CTCAE grade 4 or higher events. If three or more grade 4 or higher adverse events are observed among the six patients, the study will be halted.
