  • Patients weighing <30kg will be excluded from enrollment.
  • Participation in another clinical study with an investigational product during the last 4 weeks.
  • Concurrent enrolment in another clinical study, unless it is an observational (non-interventional) clinical study or during the follow-up period of an interventional study.
  • Receipt of the last dose of anticancer therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, endocrine therapy, targeted therapy, biologic therapy, tumor embolization, monoclonal antibodies) ≤28 days prior to the first dose of study drug If sufficient wash-out time has not occurred due to the schedule or PK properties of an agent, a longer wash-out period will be required, as agreed by Sponsor designated Coordinating Investigator and Principal Investigator.
  • Any unresolved toxicity NCI CTCAE Grade ≥2 from previous anticancer therapy with the exception of alopecia, vitiligo, and the laboratory values defined in the inclusion criteria: Patients with Grade ≥2 neuropathy will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis after consultation with the Coordinating Investigator.

Adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without evidence of disease. Adequately treated carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease.
