or liposomal doxorubicin > 360mg/m2 or free epirubicin > 600mg/m2

4. Current or recent (less than 4 weeks before first 2B3-101 treatment) treatment with
another investigational drug.

5. Any other current anticancer therapy

6. Inadequate bone marrow function, defined as: Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC): < 1.5 x

method of contraception in conjunction with spermicidal gel).

11. Major surgical procedure (including open biopsy, excluding central line IV and
Port-a-cath) within 4 weeks prior to the first study treatment, or anticipation of
the need for major surgery during the course of the study treatment.

12. Grade 3 or 4 motor, sensory, or cranial neuropathy symptoms (as defined by CTCAE
version 4.0) caused by previous chemotherapy.

13. Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic > 150 mm Hg and/or diastolic >100mm Hg).
