last menstrual period of the female partner during the study treatment and for 6
months after the final dose of study treatment.
10. Women of child bearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test
at the Screening Visit and be non-lactating.
11. Accessibility to the site that ensures the subject will be able to keep all
1. Prior exposure to >375 mg/m2 of doxorubicin or liposomal doxorubicin.
2. Prior treatment with topotecan.
3. Palliative surgery and/or radiation treatment < 21 days prior to date of

5. Exposure to any systemic chemotherapy within 21 days of date of randomization.
6. Active (symptomatic) central nervous system (CNS) metastasis.
7. History of other malignancies except cured basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous
cell carcinoma, melanoma in situ, superficial bladder cancer or carcinoma in situ of
the cervix unless documented free of cancer for ?3 years.
8. Laboratory values: Screening serum creatinine >1.5×upper limit of normal (ULN),
alanine aminotransferase (ALT) >3×ULN or >5×ULN if liver metastases are present,
total bilirubin >2×ULN, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) <1,500/mm3, platelet

medications associated with a high incidence of QT prolongation is not allowed.
12. History or signs of active coronary artery disease with angina pectoris within the
last 6 months.

fraction (LVEF) below the institution's lower limit of predicted normal.
14. Known history of HIV infection.
15. Active, clinically significant serious infection requiring treatment with
antibiotics, anti-virals or anti-fungals.
16. Treatment with p-glycoprotein inhibitors such as cyclosporine A, elacridar,

19. Any condition that is unstable and could jeopardize the subject's participation in
18 Years and older
