You are being asked to take part in this research study because you have advanced cancer that may not be responding to standard of care therapy, or because there is no current standard of care therapy available for you. This study is being done to find out the good and bad effects of a research study drug, called PF-02341066. The PF-02341006 study drug is an oral anti-cancer drug made by Pfizer, Inc. which inhibits the tumor activity of the ALK gene fusion. PF-02341066, also known as crizotinib, has been given to more than 1000 people worldwide for ALK-positive locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). On 26 August 2011, PF-02341066 (XALKORI) was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is ALK-positive as detected by an FDA-approved test. This is the first study in which PF-02341066 is being given to cancer patients, and this study has been ongoing since May 2006. It has also been tested in animals and has been shown to have anti-tumor activity in animals. This drug is being used in this study for indications that are not FDA approved and is considered investigational. The purposes of this study are: To test the safety of PF-02341066; to compare the amount of PF-02341066 in your blood after you take different strengths, to test if there are reactions to single and increased doses of PF-02341066, to determine the best dose level (how many milligrams of study drug per day) for PF-02341066 in patients, to measure how much of PF-02341066 is in your blood after you take the study drug.
