Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamic effects of a novel anti-cancer drug, GZ17-6.02 administered to patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma, which have progressed after receiving standard/approved therapy or where there is no approved therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Cancer Gastric Cancer Breast Cancer Pancreatic Cancer Prostate Cancer Metastatic Colo-rectal Cancer Solid Tumor Solid Carcinoma Solid Carcinoma of Stomach Cancer of Stomach Lymphoma Sarcoma Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Basal Cell Carcinoma Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Drug: GZ17-6.02 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This Phase I study is an open-label, dose-escalation trial designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and anti-tumor activity of the novel anti-cancer compound, GZ17-6.02. GZ17-6.02 is administered orally to patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma.
