The purpose of this study is to evaluate how effective docetaxel plus PX‑866 treatment is when given to patients with solid tumors due to advanced cancer of the lung, neck and head. Docetaxel prevents cancer cells from growing by blocking certain structures in the cancer cell (microtubules), and is already commonly used for the treatment of various cancers. PX-866 is a new experimental drug that is thought to prevent the growth of cancer cells by affecting a protein called PI-3K. This study aims to purpose find out whether PX-866 in combination with docetaxel is better than docetaxel alone.
