A Phase I Study of VS-5584 in Patients with Lymphoma or Advanced Solid Tumors

Protocol
14-065
Full Title
A Phase I, Dose Escalation Study of VS-5584, a Dual PI3K/mTOR Inhibitor, in Subjects with Advanced Non-Hematologic Malignancies or Lymphoma
Phase
I
Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the highest dose of VS-5584 that can be given safely in patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphomas that are not responding to standard therapies or for which no standard therapies exist. VS-5584 blocks two proteins that cancer cells need to grow: PI3 kinase (PI3K) and mTOR. VS-5584 is taken orally (by mouth).
