Brief Summary:

This research study is evaluating the combination of two drugs called GSK1120212 (trametinib) and GSK2141795 as a possible treatment for recurrent or persistent cervical cancer. Trametinib and GSK2141795 are drugs that may stop cancer cells from growing. Trametinib is a MEK inhibitor - it blocks a protein called MEK that is commonly overactive in tumor cells. GSK2141795 is an AKT inhibitor which blocks a pathway in cancer cells that is commonly overactive in tumor cells called the PI3kinase pathway. In this research study, the investigator is looking to see whether the combination of Trametinib and GSK2141795 is useful in treating recurrent and persistent cervical cancer.

Additionally, the investigator is looking to see if participants whose tumors contain a particular genetic make-up will have better response to combination trametinib and GSK2141795. Participants' tumors will be tested for mutations in genes which could make some cancers more susceptible to trametinib and GSK2141795.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response Rate for the Combination of GSK1120212 (Trametinib) and GSK2141795 in Patients With Recurrent or Persistent Cervical Cancer. [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    Response rate will be assessed by RECIST version 1.1.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of Progression-free (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    The duration of progression-free (PFS) following initiation of therapy with GSK1120212 (trametinib) and GSK2141795 will be measured.

  2. Toxicity of GSK1120212 (Trametinib) and GSK2141795 as Measured by the Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    Toxicity was assessed for this combination by version 4.0 of the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) in this cohort of patients. Toxicities reported were deemed related to study treatment.

  3. Mutation and Co-mutation Rates of Genes in the PI3K and RAS ERK Signaling Pathways in Recurrent Cervical Cancer Using High Throughput Targeted Mutational Analysis on Participant Tumor Samples. [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    The mutation and co-mutation rates of genes in the PI3K and RAS ERK signaling pathways in recurrent cervical cancer will be interrogated using high throughput targeted mutational analysis on participant tumor samples.

  4. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Overall survival will be determined for subjects on this study
