- Subjects must be age ? 21 years at initial diagnosis.

- Subjects must have measurable disease as demonstrated by residual abnormal tissue at
a primary or metastatic site measuring more than 1 cm in any dimension by
standardized imaging (CT or MRI); tumor must be accessible for biopsy. Patients with
bone marrow only disease expected to be >75% tumor are eligible to enroll.

- Current disease state must be one for which there is currently no known curative

- Lansky or Karnofsky Score must be more than 50

- Subjects without bone marrow metastases must have an ANC > 750/?l

- Adequate liver function must be demonstrated, defined as:

1. Total bilirubin ? 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) for age AND

2. SGPT (ALT) < 10 x upper limit of normal (ULN) for age

- Subjects receiving anti-tumor therapy for their disease or any investigational drug

- Subjects with serious infection or a life-threatening illness (unrelated to tumor)
that is > Grade 2 (NCI CTCAE V4.0), or active, serious infections requiring
