Vandetanib and Everolimus in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Cancer


The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the combination of vandetanib and everolimus that can be given to patients with advanced cancer.

The effects of the study drugs at different dose levels and the safety of the study drugs will also be studied.

Vandetanib and everolimus are both designed to harm cancer cells, stopping their growth. This may stop or slow the growth or spread of cancer cells.
