The purpose of this study is to find a recommended dose level and schedule of dosing LY3023414 that can safely be taken by participants with advanced or metastatic cancer. The study will also explore the changes to various markers in blood cells and potentially tumor cells. Finally, the study will help document any antitumor activity this drug may have. In Part A of this study, participants with advanced/metastatic cancer (including lymphoma) will receive increasing doses of LY3023414. In Part B, LY3023414 will be explored in different types of cancer, including breast and lung cancer, lymphoma and mesothelioma.

  • Have discontinued all previous cancer therapies (except nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors for participants in Part B2), and any agents that have not received regulatory approval for any indication, for at least 21 days or 5 half lives prior to study enrollment, whichever is shorter, and recovered from the acute effects of therapy. Participants must have discontinued mitomycin-C or nitrosourea therapy for at least 42 days
