Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in the combination of MLN0128 and Alisertib in patients with advanced solid tumors measured by treatment adverse events as assessed by the CTCAE v4.03 [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) will be defined as the highest dose level evaluated in which 0 or 1 patient out of 6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicity (DLT) in the combination of MLN0128 and Alisertib. Toxicity will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) Version 4.03.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients that experience an adverse event from MLN0128 and Alisertib in combination measured by treatment adverse events as assessed by the CTCAE v4.03 [ Time Frame: At least 30 days after the last dose of MLN0128 or alisertib ]
    Adverse events will be tabulated by type and grade according to the NCI CTCAE v.4.03.
