Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not XL184 demonstrates anti-tumor activity in selected tumor types under a randomized discontinuation trial (RDT) design. Subjects who have responded to study drug after 12 weeks of open-label XL184 administration will continue to take XL184. Subjects who are clearly progressing will discontinue study treatment and subjects who demonstrate stable disease will be randomized to either XL184 or placebo. For individual patients, once disease progression is observed, the blind will be broken and subjects who were randomized to placebo will be offered the option to receive open-label XL184. Subjects who progressed while taking XL184 will discontinue study treatment.

Emerging data may support enrollment in an open-label, non-randomized expansion cohort (NRE). There will be NRE cohorts for prostate and ovarian cancers.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm 1
RDT Open-Label
Drug: XL184
All subjects receive 100 mg XL184 (supplied at 19.7-, 50-, and 60-mg strength capsules) daily for 12 weeks. Subjects with a partial or complete response will continue daily XL184 administration until disease progression. Subjects with stable disease will be randomized to Arm 2 or 3.
Experimental: Arm 2
RDT Randomized Blinded-XL184
Drug: XL184
After 12 weeks of open-label daily XL184, subjects with stable disease randomized to Arm 2 will continue to receive XL184 (blinded) administered daily until disease progression.
Placebo Comparator: Arm 3
RDT Randomized Blinded
Drug: Placebo
After 12 weeks of open-label daily XL184, subjects with stable disease randomized to Arm 3 will receive capsules of placebo that are size- and color-matched to XL184 administered daily until disease progression. Subjects will be unblinded at disease progression and, if found to be receiving placebo, given the option to receive XL184.
Experimental: Non-Randomized Expansion (NRE) Cohorts
Drug: XL184
Drug: XL184
All subjects receive open-label, 100 mg XL184 (supplied at 19.7-, 50-, and 60 mg strength capsules) daily until disease progression.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the efficacy of XL184 in subjects with advanced solid tumors [ Time Frame: Assessed approximately every 6 weeks using MRI, CT, and/or bone scans ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of XL184 in subjects with advanced solid tumors [ Time Frame: Assessed approximately every 3 weeks, during study visits ]
  2. To correlate the pathway dysfunction of disease-related genes or proteins such as MET and downstream signaling molecules with clinical outcome [ Time Frame: Assessed approximately every 6 weeks through blood samples and tumor biopsies ]
  3. To further characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic parameters of XL184 [ Time Frame: Assessed approximately every 6 weeks through blood samples ]

  • Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has experienced clinically-significant hematemesis or hemoptysis of >0.5 teaspoon of red blood, or other signs indicative of pulmonary hemorrhage within 3 months before the first dose of study treatment
  • The subject has a cavitating pulmonary lesion(s) or a pulmonary lesion abutting or encasing a major blood vessel
