Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With a Dose Limited Toxicity at First Cycle [ Time Frame: 25 Days (first cycle) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Dose Limited Toxicity = Drug-related side effects that are serious enough to prevent an increase in dose or level of that treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area Under the Curve (AUC(0-24 hr)) at Day 4 [ Time Frame: Day 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Area Under the Curve (AUC (0-24 hr)) = Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) from time zero to 24 hour.

  • Area Under the Curve (AUC(0-24 hr)) at Day 5 [ Time Frame: Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Area Under the Curve (AUC (0-24 hr)) = Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) from time zero to 24 hour.

  • Maximum Concentration (Cmax) at Day 4 [ Time Frame: Day 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum Concentration (Cmax) = the maximum plasma concentration of the drug

  • Maximum Concentration (Cmax) at Day 5 [ Time Frame: Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum Concentration (Cmax) = the maximum plasma concentration of the drug
