This study is divided into two parts; Part 1 of the study is a dose escalation phase to
select the recommended dose for Part 2 based on the safety, pharmacokinetic, and
pharmacodynamic profiles observed after oral administration of GSK525762 in the following
subjects: NMC, small cell lung cancer (SCLC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), colorectal
cancer (CRC), neuroblastoma (NB), castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), triple
negative breast cancer (TNBC), estrogen receptor positive (ER positive) breast cancer, and
MYCN driven solid tumor subjects. Part 2 of the study will explore the safety, tolerability,
pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical activity of the recommended dose from Part 1
in cohorts comprised of NMC, small cell lung cancer (SCLC), castration resistant prostate
cancer (CRPC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), and estrogen receptor positive (ER
positive) breast cancer subjects. Approximately 60 subjects will be enrolled in the Part 1
and approximately 150 subjects will be enrolled in Part 2. A sub-study will be opened in Part
1 to approximately 10-12 subjects in the United States to investigate the relative
bioavailability of the besylate tablet compared to the amorphous free-base tablet at the
maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase 2 dosing (RP2D), the effect of high-fat
high-calorie meal on the bioavailability of the besylate tablet at the MTD or RP2D and the
dose proportionality of 2 doses of GSK525762 administered as besylate tablet.

clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may alter absorption such
as malabsorption syndrome or major resection of the stomach or bowels.
- A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of: Non-childbearing potential
defined as pre-menopausal females with a documented tubal ligation or hysterectomy; or

blood sample with simultaneous follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) greater than 40
milli international unit/mL and estradiol less than 40 pg/mL (less than 140 pmol/L) is
confirmatory]. Females on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and whose menopausal
status is in doubt will be required to use one of the contraception methods if they
wish to continue their HRT during the study. Otherwise, they must discontinue HRT to
allow confirmation of postmenopausal status prior to study enrollment. For most forms
of HRT, at least 2 to 4 weeks will elapse between the cessation of therapy and the
blood draw; this interval depends on the type and dosage of HRT. Following
confirmation of their post-menopausal status, they can resume use of HRT during the
study without use of a contraceptive method; Child-bearing potential and agrees to use
one of the contraception methods (described in the protocol) for an appropriate period
of time (as determined by the product label or investigator) prior to the start of
dosing to sufficiently minimize the risk of pregnancy at that point. Female subjects
must agree to use contraception until 7 months after the last dose of study
medication; Negative serum pregnancy test <=7 days prior to first study drug dose;
Female subjects who are lactating must discontinue nursing prior to the first dose of
