This is a single-center, randomized, double-blinded, biomarker driven, preoperative window of opportunity study with a pharmacodynamic primary endpoint. Patients with resectable, histologically confirmed OCC for whom surgical treatment is planned as definitive management, will be randomized 2:1 to receive PF-00299804 pre-operatively at a loading dose of 45 mg twice daily orally for 3 days, followed by 5 days of dosing at 45 mg once daily orally (plus or minus 3 days depending on surgery schedule), or to Matching Placebo for 8 days (plus or minus 3 days depending on surgery schedule). The target is a total of 8 days of treatment but with a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 11 dosing days. All patients will receive surgery as per standard of care without delay. Biomarkers from the surgical specimen and mandatory baseline tumor biopsy will be evaluated for primary and secondary pharmacodynamic endpoints.

There are three arms to this study (A, B and C) The purpose of this research study during Arm A is to see how much of PF-00299804 gets into the brain tumor. For many brain tumors, one rea...
The primary purpose of this study is to study the side effects of PF-00299804 and determine the highest dose that can be safely administered in patients with advanced cancer.
RATIONALE: PF-00299804 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether PF-00299804 is more effective than a placebo i...

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
