This is an open-label, multicenter, 2-part study to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose
(RP2D) for GSK2816126 given twice weekly by intravenous (IV) infusion. Part 1 will be
conducted in adult subjects with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL),
transformed follicular lymphoma (tFL), other Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL), solid tumors
(including castrate resistant prostate cancer) and multiple myeloma (MM) to determine the
safety and tolerability of GSK2816126. Expansion cohorts (Part 2) are planned to further
explore clinical activity of GSK2816126 at the RP2D in subjects with Enhancer of Zeste 2
(EZH2) wild type and EZH2 mutant positive germinal center B-cell like diffuse large B cell
lymphoma (GCB-DLBCL), tFL and MM.

dose of study medication until at least 2 weeks (14 days) after the last dose of study
treatment due to the long elimination phase of study drug.
- A female subject is eligible to participate ifs she is of: Non-child bearing potential
as described in the protocol; OR Child bearing potential and agrees to use effective
contraception as described in the protocol, for an appropriate period of time (as
determined by the product label) prior to the start of dosing to sufficiently minimize
the risk of pregnancy and for at least 2 weeks (14 days) following the last dose of
study treatment. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy
test within 7 days of first dose of study treatment followed by negative urine or
serum pregnancy test once every 4 weeks (prior to next dose cycle) thereafter.-

and MM subjects only. Relapsed and/or refractory MM or tFL that have failed prior
standard therapy and for which there is no standard salvage regimen
- Lymphoma subjects will be required to undergo EZH2 mutation testing. This will require
availability of archival tissue, or willingness to undergo fresh biopsy, for central
testing of EZH2 mutation status.
- Based on the results of the mutation test, lymphoma subjects may be enrolled in one of
four cohorts: GCB-DLBCL EZH2 mutant cohort: Tumors must contain one, or more, of the
following EZH2 activating mutations: Y641F; Y641N; Y641S; Y641H; Y641C; A677G; and/or
