This phase I trial studies the long-term side effects of the continuation of oral ONC201 in
treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body who have
previously benefited from receiving this drug. Oral ONC201 may stop the growth of tumor cells
by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. To evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of ONC201 (oral ONC201) administered
orally in patients with advanced cancers.
I. To characterize pharmacokinetics of ONC201. II. To assess serum biomarkers of therapeutic
response to ONC201. III. To assess preliminary antitumor activity of ONC201 as a single agent
in advanced solid tumors.
Patients receive oral ONC201 orally (PO) on day 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the
absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 4 weeks.
- Patient has completed participation in one of the ONC201 protocols, has not shown
tumor progression while on study treatment, and has tolerated the study drug without
- Patient has not met criteria for withdrawal from the base protocol
- Patient is willing to comply with protocol requirements and procedures, and keep
scheduled study visits
- Patient agrees to practice effective contraception during the entire study period
unless documentation of infertility exists

local palliative radiotherapy is permissible upon discussion with the principal
- Patient has alcohol or substance abuse which, in the opinion of the investigator,
would interfere with compliance or safety
- Patient has any condition or laboratory abnormality which, in the opinion of the
investigator, would pose additional risk in administering the study drug to the
