Primary Outcome Measures:

    A Dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) will be any clinically relevant drug related toxicity starting within 28 days from the first dose (Cycle1) that is > grade 3 (according to NCI CTCAE v 4.0 criteria) as defined below:

    1. AE > grade 3 except for alopecia or grade 3 acneiform or maculopapular skin rash lasting <4 days or grade 3 diarrhea or vomiting lasting <72h
    2. a laboratory abnormality that is > grade 3
    3. febrile neutropenia
    4. grade 4 neutropenia for >7 days
    5. grade 4 thrombocytopenia for > 24 hours
    6. grade 3 or 4 thrombocytopenia with clinically significant bleeding
    7. grade 4 liver function tests (LFTS) or grade 3 ALT with > grade 2 bilirubin (other grade 3 LFTs due to tumor progression in liver are not DLT).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: CC-122 HCL
Cohorts will receive 3 mg or lower dose of CC-122 administered orally for 28 days in 28 day cycles until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or subject/physician decision to withdraw
Drug: CC-122
Dose escalation on an intermittent schedule may occur in parallel with evaluation of the recommended 28 out of 28 day dose in Part B.
Experimental: CC-122- DLBCL-2
A new DLBCL cohort (DLBCL-2) in order to evaluate intermittent schedules of CC-122 (5 continuous days out of 7 days per week [5/7 days] and/or 21 continuous days out of 28 days per cycle [21/28 days]). Doses to be explored include 4 mg and 5 mg on an intermittent schedule using the 3+3 design described in Part A in order to establish an MTD for the intermittent dosing schedules. Following dose escalation, one or more intermittent dosing schedules may be expanded at or below the new intermittent schedule MTD in at least 20 total subjects per dosing schedule.
Drug: CC-122
One or more intermittent schedules of CC-122 either given 5 continuous days out of 7 per week (5/7 days) or 21 continuous days out of 28 days per cycle (21/28 days). Following dose escalation, one or more of these intermittent schedules will be evaluated at a starting dose of 4 mg.
Experimental: CC-122- GBM-2
A new GBM cohort (GBM-2) in order to evaluate doses of CC-122 above the 3 mg QD MTD determined in all comers in Part A. CC-122 dose will increase in 1 mg increments starting with 4 mg daily on a continuous schedule using the 3+3 design described in Part A in order to establish an MTD specific for GBM subjects. Following dose escalation, the cohort will be expanded at or below the new MTD in up to 20 total subjects.
Drug: CC-122
Dose escalation on a continous schedule will be evaluated at a starting dose of 4 mg. Specifically, dose levels with 1 mg increments (eg 4mg, 5mg, 6mg etc.) will be evaluated using a 3+3 design as detailed in Part A of the protocol .

Detailed Description:

Initially, patients will be treated with oral CC-122 for one month. During this time, various tests (involving blood and urine collections, ECGs, etc) will be performed. Those whose tumors stabilize or regress may continue receiving treatment for as long as they benefit from CC-122. Different dose levels of CC-122 will be tested in a dose-rising study design.
