If tissue is not available for MSK patient, a new tumor specimen will need to be obtained prior to the start of study treatment If archived tissue is available, participating site patient will provide for the evaluation of potential predictive biomarkers. If tissue is not available for participating site patient, a new tumor specimen is optional prior to the start of study treatment.

  • INR ≤ 1.5

  • Serum creatinine <1.5mg/dL or creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min

  • In the absence of liver metastases, alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) <2.5 x ULN. If a patient has liver metastases, ALT and AST <5 x ULN

  • Total bilirubin < ULN; or total bilirubin ≤3.0 x ULN or direct bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN in patients with well-documented Gilbert"s Syndrome

  • Negative serum pregnancy test done ≤14 days prior to registration, for women of childbearing potential only A serum pregnancy test will be conducted ≤ 72 hours prior to treatment start as a pre-treatment parameter. All women of reproductive potential and their partners must agree to use adequate methods of birth control (e.g. latex condoms) throughout the study and for 30 days after the last dose of study drug.

† A female of reproductive potential is a sexually mature female who: has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e. has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months).

  • Patient with standard 12-lead ECG with the following parameters at screening (defined as the mean of the triplicate ECGs)

°QTcF interval at screening <450msec (using Fridericia"s correction)

  • Must be able to swallow LEE011 and everolimus capsules/tablets

  • Recovered from adverse events (to grade 1 or less toxicity according to CTCAE 4.0) due to agents administered previously *NOTE: Chemotherapy-induced alopecia and grade 2 neuropathy are acceptable

Exclusion Criteria:
  • Patient has a known hypersensitivity to any of the excipients of LEE011 or everolimus

  • Previous treatment with a CDK 4/6 inhibitor or an mTOR inhibitor

  • Has had prior chemotherapy, targeted small molecule therapy within 2 weeks prior to study Day 1 or who has not recovered (i.e. ≤ Grade 1 or at baseline) from adverse events due to a previously administered agent

*Note: Subjects with < Grade 2 neuropathy or chemotherapy-induced alopecia are an exception to this criterion and may qualify for the study

  • Patient has a known history of HIV infection (testing not mandatory)

  • Patient has any other concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical condition that would, in the investigator"s judgment, cause unacceptable safety risks, contraindicate patient participation in the clinical study or compromise compliance with the protocol (e.g. chronic pancreatitis, active untreated or uncontrolled fungal, bacterial or viral infections, etc.).

  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus as defined by HbA1c >8% despite adequate therapy. Patients with a known history of impaired fasting glucose or diabetes mellitus (DM) may be included, however blood glucose and antidiabetic treatment must be monitored closely throughout the trial and adjusted as necessary

QT syndrome, or any of the following:
  • Risk factors for Torsades de Pointe (TdP) including uncorrected hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia, history of cardiac failure, or history of clinically significant/symptomatic bradycardia

  • Concomitant medication(s) with a known risk to prolong the QT interval and/or known to cause Torsades de Pointe that cannot be discontinued or replaced by safe alternative medication (e.g. within 5 half-lives or 7 days prior to starting study drug)
