Rebastinib is an inhibitor of a molecule that acts in cancer growth and cancer cell survival, called “TIE2”. Paclitaxel is approved by the FDA as single therapy and in combination with other chemotherapy medications in a variety of cancer types. The dosage of rebastinib being administered is based on safety data from the prior cohorts of patients in part 1b of this study.
Rebastinib will be taken orally twice daily. Paclitaxel will be given intravenously in the clinic on Days 1, 8, and 15 of each 28 day cycle.
Patients will receive study treatment until they develop progressive disease, experience unacceptable toxicity, or withdraw from the study.
