Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Safety lab tests and adverse event assessment

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

    Progression of disease by RANO criteria:

    The RANO criteria divides response into four types of response based on imaging and clinical features

    1. complete response
    2. partial response
    3. stable disease
    4. progression

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject is receiving warfarin (or other coumarin derivatives) and is unable to switch to low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) before the first dose of study drug.
  • The subject has evidence of acute intracranial or intratumoral hemorrhage either by MRI or computerized tomography (CT) scan. Subjects with resolving hemorrhage, punctate hemorrhage, or hemosiderin are eligible.
  • The subject is unable to undergo MRI scan (eg, has pacemaker).
  • The subject has received enzyme-inducing anti-epileptic agents within 14 days of study drug (eg, carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, primidone).
  • The subject has not recovered to National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.03 Grade ≤ 1 from AEs (except alopecia, anemia and lymphopenia) due to surgery, antineoplastic agents, investigational drugs, or other medications that were administered prior to study drug.
  • The subject has evidence of wound dehiscence
  • Severe chronic obstructive or other pulmonary disease with hypoxemia (requires supplementary oxygen, symptoms due to hypoxemia or oxygen saturation <90% by pulse oximetry after a 2 minute walk) or in the opinion of the investigator any physiological state likely to cause normal tissue hypoxia
  • The subject is pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • The subject has serious intercurrent illness, such as:

    1. hypertension (two or more blood pressure [BP] readings performed at screening of > 150 mmHg systolic or > 100 mmHg diastolic) despite optimal treatment
