Brief Summary:
Open-label dose escalation of Ulixertinib combined with fixed dose of hydroxychloroquine.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastrointestinal Neoplasms Drug: Ulixertinib Drug: Hydroxychloroquine Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label Phase I basket trial designed to determine the phase 2 recommended dose of ulixertinib in combination hydroxychloroquine. The recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be determined by using a standard 3+3 dose-escalation design with a minimum of 3 evaluable subjects accrued to dose level one and two. Should dose level one be deemed intolerable, enrollment will proceed at dose level 0. The RP2D will be affirmed according to the rules of the 3+3 dose-escalation scheme

  1. Safety and tolerability of ulixertinib and hydroxychloroquine in the study population: adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Any patient who has taken at least one dose of both ulixertinib and hydroxychloroquine will be evaluable for toxicity. Assessment will be completed through safety follow-up visit at 60 days after the end of treatment visit. ]
    The frequency of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) characterized by type, severity (as defined by the NIH CTCAE, version 5.0), seriousness, duration, and relationship to study treatment

  2. Efficacy of ulixertinib and hydroxychloroquine in the study population: Objective response rate (PR and CR) [ Time Frame: Patients will be evaluable for response once they have completed the first cycle of treatment and completed the C2D1 CT Scan.Assessment will be completed through safety follow-up visit at 60 days after the end of treatment visit. ]
    Objective response rate (PR and CR) will be described
