- Note: Double barrier contraceptives must be used through the trial by both
sexes. Oral, implantable, or injectable contraceptives may be affected by
cytochrome P450 interactions, and are therefore not considered effective for
this study. Women of child-bearing potential, defined as sexually mature women
who have not undergone a hysterectomy or who have not been naturally
postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (i.e., who has had menses any
time in the preceding 12 consecutive months), must have a negative serum
pregnancy test ? 72 hours prior to initiating treatment.

- Note: Women are considered post-menopausal and not of child bearing potential if
they have had 12 months of natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea with an appropriate
clinical profile (e.g. age appropriate, history of vasomotor symptoms) or six
months of spontaneous amenorrhea with serum FSH levels > 40 mIU/mL [for US only:
and estradiol < 20 pg/mL] or have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy (with or
without hysterectomy) at least six weeks ago. In the case of oophorectomy alone,
only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up
hormone level assessment is she considered not of child bearing potential.

- Note: Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically
capable of becoming pregnant, must use highly effective contraception during
treatment for 4 weeks (5 T1/2) after stopping treatment. The highly effective
contraception is defined as either:

i. True abstinence: When this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle
of the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal,
post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of

ii. Sterilization: have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy (with or without
hysterectomy) or tubal ligation at least six weeks ago. In case of oophorectomy
alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up
hormone level assessment.

iii. Male partner sterilization (with the appropriate post-vasectomy documentation of
the absence of sperm in the ejaculate). For female subjects on the study, the
vasectomised male partner should be the sole partner for that patient.

iv. Use of a combination of any two of the following (a+b):

1. Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)

2. Barrier methods of contraception: Condom or Occlusive cap (diaphragm or
cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository

- Oral contraception, injected or implanted hormonal methods are not allowed
as BKM120 potentially decreases the effectiveness of hormonal

25. Patient has known diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection

26. Patient has history of another malignancy within 5 years, except cured basal cell
carcinoma of the skin or excised carcinoma in situ of the cervix

27. Patient is unable or unwilling to abide by the study protocol or cooperate fully with
the investigator

28. Patient is concurrently using other approved or investigational antineoplastic agent.
