Brief Summary:
The purpose of a phase Ib study is to find out the best or maximum tolerated dose of a medication or combination of medications. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to decide the best dose of the study drug, Debio 1347, that can be given in combination with the standard hormonal drug, fulvestrant. Debio 1347 and fulvestrant could shrink the cancer but it could also cause side effects. This study tells us about the side effects of these drugs when given in this new combination, and how often they occur.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: fulvestrant and Debio 1347
Fulvestrant will be administered according to its approved dose of 500 mg intramuscularly on days 1, 15, 29 and then every 28 days (+/-3 days) thereafter. Debio 1347 will be administered orally daily (1 cycle is 28 days) and the dose of Debio 1347 could be deescalated. The dosage in the phase 2 portion will be the MTD/RP2D determined in the phase 1b portion.
Drug: Fulvestrant
Fulvestrant will be administered according to its approved dose of 500 mg intramuscularly on days 1, 15, 29 and then every 28 days (+/-3 days) thereafter.

Drug: Debio 1347
Debio 1347 will be administered orally daily (1 cycle is 28 days) and the dose of Debio 1347 could be deescalated.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients experiencing Dose Limiting Toxicity (Phase I) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Selected non-hematologic and hematologic toxicities, as measured by the NCI CTCAE Version 4.0, will be described by frequency and grade, by cycle and over all cycles, with the maximum grade over all cycles used as the summary measure per patient.

  2. proportion of patients who have a best overall response (Phase II) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Tumor response is based on the RECIST v.1.1.
