          -  For women of childbearing potential: agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from
             heterosexual intercourse) or use contraceptive methods that result in a failure rate
             of < 1% per year during the treatment period and for at least 6 months after the last
             dose of DS-3201b or irinotecan, whichever date is later.

               -  A woman is considered to be of childbearing potential if she is postmenarcheal,
                  has not reached a postmenopausal state (≥ 12 continuous months of amenorrhea with
                  no identified cause other than menopause), and has not undergone surgical
                  sterilization (removal of ovaries and/or uterus).

               -  Examples of contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1% per year include
                  bilateral tubal ligation, male sterilization, and established proper use of

               -  The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the
                  duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the
                  patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or
                  postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of
                  contraception.

          -  For men of childbearing potential: agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from
             heterosexual intercourse) or use a condom with female partners of childbearing
             potential or pregnant female partners during the treatment period and for at least 6
             months after the last dose of DS-3201b or irinotecan, whichever date is later.

               -  Men must refrain from donating sperm during this same period as defined above.

               -  The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the
                  duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the
                  patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or
                  postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of
                  contraception.

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:maximum tolerated dose (MTD) (Phase l)
Time Frame:1 year
Safety Issue:
Description:Will employ a standard 3-by-3 dose-escalation phase I study design to investigate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of DS-3201b in combination with fixed dose irinotecan. The study population for Phase I dose-escalation will include only patients who complete at least 1 full cycle of treatment (including the initial 7-day safety run-in and the complete 21-days of Cycle 1); only these patients will be considered evaluable for DLT and determination of the MTD.
