FISH or 3+ Her2 overexpression by immunohistochemistry ("IHC"). Patients are not
required to have measurable disease for this investigation. Disease must be assessed
within 28 days prior to treatment initiation

- All Adverse Events of any prior chemotherapy, surgery, or radiotherapy, must have
resolved to NCI CTCAE (v. 3.0) Grade <= 2 (except for alopecia)

- The following laboratory results, within 10 days of KOS-1022 administration:

- Hemoglobin >= 8.5 g/dL

- Absolute neutrophils count >= 1.5 x 10*9* /L

- Platelet count >= 75 x 10*9*/L

- Serum bilirubin <= 2 x ULN

- AST and ALT <= 2.5 x ULN

- Serum creatinine <= 2 x ULN

Exclusion Criteria:

- Documented hypersensitivity reaction of CTCAE Grade >= 3 to prior therapy containing

- Pregnant or breast-feeding women. Male patients must be surgically sterile or agree
to use an acceptable method of contraception

- Patients with Grade 2 or higher dyspnea at rest on room air; patients with other
clinically significant pulmonary co-morbidity(s) that might predispose the patient to
pulmonary toxicity
