  Purpose

This is a dose-escalation, Phase I/II, open-label, three-part study. Part 1 is designed to determine the recommended dose and schedule for the orally administered MEK inhibitor trametinib, given together with the CDK4/6 inhibitorpalbociclib in subjects with solid tumors. Multiple dose levels of each inhibitor will be tested to determine the recommended dose and schedule. Part 2 will evaluate the effect of the combination on tumor biomarkers safety, and anti-cancer activity in subjects with cutaneous melanoma that do not have a change at BRAFV600. Approximately 100-200 subjects will be enrolled. All subjects will receive trametinib and/or palbociclib until disease progression, death, consent withdrawal or unacceptable adverse event (AE).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Part 1
Part 1 is a dose finding phase in which subjects will be initially administered 75 milligram (mg) of palbociclib (21 days on/7 days off) and 1.5 mg of trametinib (once daily continuous dosing) in each 28-day cycle. Dose escalations will continue based on predefined parameters until the RCR is identified. The RCR will not exceed the maximum tolerated dose (MTD).
Drug: Trametinib
Trametinib is available as a 0.5 mg yellow oval tablet or as a 2.0 mg pink round tablet.
Drug: Palbociclib
Palbociclib is available as a 75 mg (size 2 sunset yellow) or 100 mg (size 1 sunset yellow/caramel) or 125 mg (size 0 caramel) capsule.
Experimental: Part 2
Once the MTD and schedule have been determined, two expansion cohorts of up to 20 subjects each will be enrolled. The cohorts will enroll subjects with BRAF-WT (wild type) cutaneous melanoma that are either NRAS-WT or NRAS-MUT (mutated). Subjects will be dosed at or below the RCR to determine the inhibition of selected tumor biomarkers at each dose level.
Drug: Trametinib
Trametinib is available as a 0.5 mg yellow oval tablet or as a 2.0 mg pink round tablet.
Drug: Palbociclib
Palbociclib is available as a 75 mg (size 2 sunset yellow) or 100 mg (size 1 sunset yellow/caramel) or 125 mg (size 0 caramel) capsule.
Experimental: Part 3
Part 3 will be a randomized Phase II study in which subjects will be administered the RCR as previously identified. Part 3 will be initiated only if an RCR is identified, and sufficient anticancer activity is observed in Parts 1 and 2.
Drug: Trametinib
Trametinib is available as a 0.5 mg yellow oval tablet or as a 2.0 mg pink round tablet.
Drug: Palbociclib
Palbociclib is available as a 75 mg (size 2 sunset yellow) or 100 mg (size 1 sunset yellow/caramel) or 125 mg (size 0 caramel) capsule.
