Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Adverse Events (AE) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
    Safety and tolerability as measured by incidence of AEs

  2. Incidence of Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
    Safety and tolerability as measured by incidence of AEs

  3. Incidence of AEs meeting protocol-defined dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) criteria [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  4. Incidence of AEs leading to discontinuation [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  5. Incidence of death [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  6. Incidence of Laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cmax (Maximum observed serum concentration) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  2. Tmax (Time of maximum observed concentration) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  3. AUC(0-T) (Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero to time of last quantifiable concentration) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  4. AUC(TAU) (Area under the concentration-time curve in 1 dosing interval) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  5. Ctau (Observed concentration at the end of a dosing interval) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  6. Ctrough (Trough observed concentrations) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  7. Best overall response (BOR) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
    assessed per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1

  8. Duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  9. Progression-Free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  10. Time to response (TTR) [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ]
  11. Total body clearance (CLT) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  12. Average serum concentration over a dosing interval (AUC[TAU]/tau) at steady state (Css-avg) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  13. Terminal serum half-life if data permit (T-HALF) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
  14. Ratio of an exposure measure at steady state to that after the first dose [exposure measure includes AUC[TAU] and Cmax (AI)] [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
