been amenorrheic for 12 months without an alternative medical cause. The following
age-specific requirements apply:

therapeutic antibodies and toxin immunoconjugates) or any investigational therapy ≤ 14
days or within 5 half-lives prior to starting study treatment, whichever is shorter.
- Subject has received radiotherapy ≤ 14 days prior to the first dose of study
treatment. Localized radiation therapy for the treatment of symptomatic bone
metastasis is allowed during that timeframe.
- Subjects who have undergone major surgery ≤ 3 weeks prior to starting study drug or
who have not fully recovered from major surgery.
- Presence of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC).

castration) or prostate cancer that has been adequately treated with prostatectomy or
radiotherapy and currently with no evidence of disease or symptoms is allowed.
- Known brain metastases or cranial epidural disease.
--Note: Brain metastases or cranial epidural disease adequately treated with
radiotherapy and/or surgery and stable for at least 4 weeks before the first dose of
study treatment will be allowed on trial. Subjects must be neurologically asymptomatic
and without corticosteroid treatment at the time of first dose of study treatment.
- History or current evidence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or current risk factors
for RVO (e.g. uncontrolled glaucoma or ocular hypertension, history of hyperviscosity
or hypercoagulability syndromes).
- Current evidence of uncontrolled, significant intercurrent illness including, but not
limited to, the following conditions:
- Cardiovascular disorders:
- Congestive heart failure New York Heart Association Class 3 or 4, unstable angina
pectoris, serious cardiac arrhythmias.
- Stroke (including transient ischemic attack [TIA]), myocardial infarction (MI),
or other ischemic events, or thromboembolic event (eg, deep venous thrombosis,
pulmonary embolism) within 3 months before first dose.
- QTc prolongation defined as a QTcF > 500 ms.
- History of seizures
- Impairment of gastrointestinal function or gastrointestinal disease (e.g.,
ulcerative disease, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption
syndrome, or small bowel resection under the judgment of the PI may impair
absorption of study drugs).
- Any other condition that would, in the Investigator's judgment, contraindicate
the patient's participation in the clinical study due to safety concerns or
compliance with clinical study procedures, e.g., infection/inflammation,
intestinal obstruction, unable to swallow medication.(patients may not receive
drug through a feeding tube), social/ psychological issues, etc.
- Known HIV infection with a detectable viral load within 6 months of the anticipated
start of treatment.
--Note: Patients on effective antiretroviral therapy with an undetectable viral load
within 6 months of the anticipated start of treatment are eligible for this trial.

history, physical examination, radiographic findings, and TB testing in line with
local practice), hepatitis B (known positive HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) result), or

hepatitis B core antibody [anti-HBc] and absence of HBsAg) are eligible. Patients
positive for hepatitis C (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction
is negative for HCV RNA.
- Medical, psychiatric, cognitive or other conditions that may compromise the patient's
ability to understand the patient information, give informed consent, comply with the

indicated should occur prior to the start of treatment.
