This is a nonrandomized, open-label, dosed escalation, safety activity, and PK study to
determine the MTD and optimal dosing regimen of Eribulin ORA.
This is a multicenter, open-label safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and activity study.
Eligible subjects will be adults with advanced solid tumors.
Groups of 3 to 6 subjects will receive a single dose of Eribulin ORA on Day 1 and Day 8 of a
21 day cycle and will be followed for toxicity. If non linearity in PK is observed,
additional subjects will be added with study drug administered on Day 1 and 8 once every
three weeks cycle. Subjects who tolerate the study drug and have stable disease or better
response will be eligible to receive ongoing treatment.

10. Subjects receiving warfarin who are otherwise eligible and who may be appropriately
managed with low molecular weight heparin, in the opinion of the Investigator, may be

least 7 days prior to receiving study treatment.

sterile (ie, by hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy) or must be using highly
effective contraception (ie, oral contraceptives, intrauterine device, double barrier
method of condom and spermicide) and agree to continue use of contraception for 90
days after their last dose of assigned study treatment.
15. Subjects who are of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test
at Screening and within 72 hours before the first dose.
