Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose and thus the recommended phase II dose and schedule of single agent oral in patients with advance solid tumors [ Time Frame: 23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the safety and tolerability of the compound at the RPTD [ Time Frame: 23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To determine the pharmacokinetic profiles of the drug including known pharmacologically active metabolites [ Time Frame: 23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To evaluate the pharmacodynamic effect of the drug. [ Time Frame: 23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To assess any preliminary anti-tumor activity. [ Time Frame: 23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
