- Cohorts 2 & 3 only: Patients with secondary brain tumors must be greater than or
equal to 4 weeks from radiotherapy. Patients with progressive secondary brain tumors
will not be enrolled under this protocol following the completion of Cohort 3.

- At least 4 weeks from last chemotherapy or bevacizumab (Avastin) therapy (6 weeks for

- Concomitant medications that are known inducers of CYP.

- Concomitant medications that are strong inhibitors of cytochrome P450 and CYP3A up to
14 days before Cycle 1 Day 1 (pimozide, diltiazem, erythromycin, clarithromycin, and
