Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dose escalaltion study of HH2710
to determin the MTD of HH2710 and/or Recommended Phase II dose (RP2D).
Drug: HH2710
HH2710 is a small molecule that potently inhibits both ERK1 and ERK2 protein kinases in the nanomolar range. The kinase selectivity assessment towards a panel of over 400 protein kinases showed that HH2710 barely inhibited other kinases at a concentration up to 1 μM, except the substantial inhibition against ERK1 (MAPK1), ERK2 (MAPK2) and the MAPK pathway upstream kinases MEK and RAF proteins.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MTD (Maximum Tolerated Dose) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    To determine the maximum tolerable dose.

    Incidence rate of dose limiting toxicities.

  3. Tumor Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Tumor objective response rate (ORR) based on RECIST version 1.1.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetic measures - Peak plasma concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure the maximum (peak) plasma concentration(s)

  2. Pharmacokinetic measures - Peak time (Tmax) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure of time to reach maximum (peak) plasma concentration(s)

  3. Pharmacokinetic measures - Plasma concentration timecurve from time 0 to time (t) (AUC0-t) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure the variation of concentration in blood plasma as a function of time

  4. Pharmacokinetic measures -Plasma elimination half-life (t1/2) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure elimination half-life, when administered in combination

  5. Pharmacokinetic measures - Plasma clearance rate constant (λz), [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure the clearance rate constant

  6. Pharmacokinetic measures - Apparent clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure apparent total clearance(s) from plasma after oral

  7. Pharmacokinetic measures - Apparent volume of distribution (Vz/F) [ Time Frame: About 2 years ]
    Measure apparent volume of distribution during terminal phase after
