[ Time Frame: Full routine safety assessment on days 1-4, 8, 10, 14, 21, 28 then every 3 weeks after first dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Combination part: The contents of same assessment as Monotherapy. [ Time Frame: Full routine safety assessment on days 1-5, 8, 15, 22, 28 then every 4 weeks after first dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Combination Part: Pharmacokinetics of AZD8931 (tmax, Cmax, AUC0-10) [ Time Frame: On Day D7 and Day D8: pre-dose then, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Combination Part: Pharmacokinetics of paclitaxel (tmax, Cmax, AUC0-10) [ Time Frame: On Days D1 and Day D8: pre-infusion then, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 24 (D1 only) hours post start of infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Monotherapy Part: Pharmacokinetics of AZD8931 (Single dose plasma PK: AUC0-10, AUC0-12, AUC0-24, AUC0-t, AUC, Cmax, tmax, t1/2, CL/F, Vss/F. Multiple dose plasma PK: AUCss0-10, AUCss0-12, Cssmax, tssmax, Cssmin, CLss/F, RAC, linearity factor) [ Time Frame: On single dose Day 1 (D1) and multiple dose Day 21 (R14): samples taken pre-dose then 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 24 (D1 only), 48 (D1 only) and 72 (D1 only) hours post dose. Day 10 (R3) and Day 14 (R7): pre-dose only ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
