A Pilot Open-Label Study to Examine the Safety and Efficacy of Oral LDE225 in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Basal Cell Carcinoma Who Have Been Previously Treated With Non-LDE225 Smoothened Inhibitor(s)

This is a prospective single-center, open label, pilot study to investigate the safety and efficacy of LDE225 in patients with locally advanced or metastatic basal cell carcinoma. Primary Objectives: ? To explore the effects of oral LDE225 on the Progression Free Survival (PFS) of individuals with locally advanced or metastatic BCC who have been previously treated with a non-LDE225 Smo inhibitor. Secondary Objectives: - To evaluate the effect of oral LDE225 on tumor tissue biomarkers of BCC activation (Gii 1, 2, Patched 1,2 and Ki67) in individuals which are non-na"ive to Smo inhibitors other than LDE225, at baseline and at end-of-treatment - To describe adverse effects of oral LDE225 in individuals with a history of non-LDE225 Smo inhibitor usage - To assess the overall survival rates of individuals with locally advanced BCC or metastatic BCC who have previously taken a non-LDE225 Smo inhibitor after treatment with LDE225
