The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the combination of two drugs called RAD001 and AMG479. This study will see what effects (good and bad) RAD001 and AMG479 have on cancer. This study will also find the highest doses of RAD001 and AMG479 that can be given without causing severe side effects.

I. To determine the maximum tolerated (MTD) and recommended Phase II doses for AMG479 (ganitumab) and RAD001 (everolimus) in patients with refractory solid tumors.

II. To determine the safety and toxicity of AMG479 and RAD001.


I. To determine preliminary antitumor efficacy of AMG479 and RAD001 in solid tumors: response and stable disease rates, duration of response and of stable disease, time to progression (TTP) and overall survival (OS).

II. For all patients, to analyze tumor and blood samples for pharmacodynamic biomarkers related to IGF-1R and mTOR signaling: pAkt, pS6, p-4EBP1, PTEN, IGF-1, IGF-2, pIGF-1R and IGFBP3 and correlate with response and stable disease.

III. For all patients, to analyze the pharmacokinetic profile (PK) for RAD001 and AMG479, and correlate with response/stable disease and pharmacodynamic markers.

IV. To evaluate the effects of RAD001 on AMG 479 pharmacokinetics.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive everolimus orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28 (days 1-7 and 16-28 of course 1 only) and ganitumab intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on days 1 and 15 (day 15 of course 1 only). Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at day 30, every 3 months for 2 years from registration for study treatment, every 6 months for years 3-5, and then annually thereafter.

Must be willing to provide metastatic tissue biopsy samples (may be paraffin embedded) at baseline
Must be willing to undergo a metastatic tissue biopsy after 2 cycles of therapy to perform pharmacodynamic research biomarkers testing.
Subjects must be willing and able to abstain from using strong or moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers during the study period.
