- Patient must have a histologically-confirmed metastatic or locally advanced cancer.
- Patient is ≥ 18 years of age on day of signing informed consent.
- Patient must have performance status < 1 on the ECOG performance scale.
- Patient must have adequate organ function as indicated by the following laboratory
- Hematological: absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,5x109/L; platelets ≥ 100
x109/L; hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL
- Renal : calculated creatinine clearance b ≥ 60 mL/min
- Hepatic : serum total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 X ULN ; AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 X
ULN; alkaline phosphatase if > 2.5 X ULN, then liver fraction should be ≤ 2.5 X
- Coagulation : prothrombin time (PT) ≤1.2 X ULN ; partial thromboplastin time
(PTT) ≤1.2 X ULN
1. Patients should have adequate bone marrow function without the current use
of colony stimulating factors
2. Creatinine clearance should be calculated according to Cockcroft-Gault

test within 72 h before drug administration
