PhasePhase 1
AgesMin: 21 Years Max: N/A
Eligibility
Inclusion Criteria:: Inclusion Criteria will be as follows -

- Subjects must have histological proof of a CNS malignancy (primary or metastatic),
which has been treated with standard treatments, that may include radiation, and must
have measurable lesions.

- Subjects must have life expectancy of at least 12 weeks and a Karnofsky performance
score: > 60 % (or a Zubrod performance status of < 2).

- The age limit - a limit of 39 years of age. Gender is not a criterion.

- All subjects must be off previous chemo- and/or radiotherapy for at least three (3)

14 days of enrollment. Subjects may continue to receive anti- estrogen/steroid therapy
that has been initiated at least eight weeks prior to enrollment in the study.

- Subjects should have adequate bone marrow function defined as a peripheral WBC
>3,000/mm3 with an ANC >1500/mm3 and a platelet count >100,000/mm3.

- Subjects should have hepatic function (alkaline phosphatase, AST and ALT) < ULN and
renal functions with serum creatinine - <1.5 x UNL. If a patient has liver metastasis
and/or a history of liver disease - they will receive a lower dose of the drug per
treatment protocol.

- Subjects should not be allergic to eggs or soy beans.

- Subjects must be medically, psychologically and neurologically stable and have

Exclusion Criteria: Exclusion criteria will be as follows:

- Subjects with concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical co-morbidities - including

renal, psychiatric or social conditions that could compromise the safety or compliance
of treatment are not eligible.

- Concomitant chemotherapy or radiotherapy is not permitted.

- Pregnant or lactating females are excluded. Women of childbearing age, and their

sexual relations with women capable of child bearing must use the barrier birth
control while on the study and for 3-months after the last dose of the study drug.

- Subjects taking CYP3A4 inducers or inhibitors are not eligible since it is not known
whether the study drug is metabolized through this pathway. The following CYP3A4
inhibitors/inducers are not permitted during the trial - phenobarbital, fluconazole,
erythromycin, verapamil; the latter 3-drugs are moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors.

- Subjects taking the following medications may experience QT/QTc interval prolongation
and are not eligible for the trial - most anti-arrhythmia drugs (incl. amiodarone),
erythromycin, quinolone antibiotics, ketoconazole, Zithromax, and phenothiazine and
will be denied enrollment in the study. The possible interactions of these drugs and
DM-CHOC-PEN have not been established. Subjects receiving these drugs will only be
eligible if they discontinue the drugs and have an acceptable ECG.

- Coagulopathies - patients requiring full dose anticoagulation with warfarin are
