What is Involved?

If you choose to join this study, you will take the study drug by mouth each day. This drug is taken once a day continuously in 28-day cycles.

Your study doctor will assess how you are doing at the end of each drug cycle. How many drug cycles you do will depend on:

  • How well you tolerate the study drug
  • How well your cancer responds to the drug
  • Your overall health

When you stop taking the study drug, we will follow up with you each month either over the phone or in the clinic to see how you are doing. This monthly follow-up may continue for up to 6 months.
