Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PLX3397

Part 1: Open label, multicenter study includes a dose evaluation portion in which the safety profile of PLX3397 as a single oral agent will be evaluated

Part 2: An expansion cohort in which the efficacy and safety of PLX3397 administered at the recommended Phase 2 dose will be evaluated in patients with unresectable stage III or stage IV KIT-mutated melanoma.

Drug: PLX3397
Other Name: Pexidartinib

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with dose-limiting toxicities [Part 1] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    This measure is used to determine the recommended Part 2 Dose (R2PD)

  2. Area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) of PLX3397 [Part 1] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  3. Maximum observed concentration (Cmax) of PLX3397 [Part 1] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  4. Time to peak concentration (Tmax) of PLX3397 [Part 1] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  5. Number of participants achieving objective response [Part 2] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Objective response is the sum of complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) by RECIST 1.1 criteria

  6. Number of participants with serious and non-serious adverse events (AEs) by the end of Part 1 [ Time Frame: by the end of Part 1 (1 year) ]

    An AE can be any unfavorable and unintended sign (e.g., including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of the study drug, whether or not it is considered to be study drug related. This includes any newly occurring event or previous condition that has increased in severity or frequency since the administration of study drug.

    SAEs are events that pose a threat to a patient's life or functioning. Clear progression of the underlying cancer and hospitalizations due to the progression of cancer should not be reported as an adverse event, or a serious adverse event.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of response [Part 2] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  2. Progression-free survival [Part 2] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  3. Overall survival [Part 2] [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  4. Number of participants with serious and non-serious adverse events (AEs) by the end of Part 2 [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
