Participants who previously received lenvatinib treatment are ineligible

      11. For CRC Subpart in Expansion Part only: participants must have received at least 2

  1. Any of cardiac conditions as follows:
    1. Heart failure New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II or above

    Note: Adequate wound healing after major surgery must be assessed clinically, independent of time elapsed for eligibility

  3. Known to be human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive Note: the sponsor has evaluated whether to include participant with HIV. Given that this is the first combination study of E7386 with lenvatinib and that the main mechanism of action of E7386 is immunomodulation of the tumor microenvironment along with the fact that several anti-retroviral therapies have drug-drug interaction with cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) substrates, the sponsor has decided not to include these participants at the current time. However, further considerations will be made moving forward based on new emerging data Note: HIV testing is required at screening only when mandated by local health authority
