- Have histologically confirmed rare cancer and/or cancer of unknown primary, that did not have a match to a molecularly-guided therapy on EAY131 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice (MATCH) protocol or who progressed on molecularly-matched therapy and have no further molecularly-matched treatment recommendations per EAY131, NCI-MATCH.
- Have histologic documentation of metastatic malignancy with no discernible primary site identified from histopathologic review, physical exam and associated cross-sectional imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.
