The primary objective of this phase II trial is to determine tumor overall response rate (ORR) in molecularly selected patients with measurable disease as assessed by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), before versus after 16 weeks of treatment across tumor types in each arm of the study.

Study summary:

This is a phase II signal-searching study in a range of tumor types with the potential to identify novel tumor indications for combination therapy with olaparib that can subsequently be explored in dedicated studies. Patients will be enrolled in this study based on molecular markers from genetic profiling performed on their tumors prior to study entry (outside of protocol). The trial will also identify genetic determinants of response and resistance. Patients with tumors harboring damaging mutations in Homologous - DNA repair (HDR) genes or mutations such as ATM, CHK2, MRN (MRE11/NBS1/RAD50), CDKN2A/B and APOBEC will be treated with olaparib or olaparib and AZD6738. Enrollment to the olaparib monotherapy arm will be completed prior to commencement of enrollment to the olaparib and AZD6738 arm. Patients with tumors harboring IDH1/IDH2 mutations will be treated with olaparib. Patients with tumors harboring either TP53 or KRAS mutations or mutations in KRAS and TP53 will be treated with AZD1775 plus olaparib. Patients with tumors harboring PTEN, PIK3CA, AKT, or ARID1A mutations or other molecular aberrations leading to dysregulation of the PI3K/AKT pathway will be treated with AZD5363 plus olaparib.


Inclusion Criteria: - Histologically documented metastatic cancer (solid tumors, not including hematologic malignancies) - Patients who have received standard first-line therapy for metastatic cancer (except for the tumors for which no first-line therapy exists) and in whom a trial of targeted therapy is considered the best available treatment option.

The patient can receive a stable dose of corticosteroids before and during the study if started at least 28 days prior to initiating the study agent(s).. - History of carcinomatous meningitis - Patients with second primary cancer, except: adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, curatively treated stage I cancers (cervix, breast, colon, lung, or prostate as examples) or other advanced (> Stage I)solid tumors curatively treated with no evidence of disease for ≥ 5 years. - Patient must not have a co-morbid condition(s) that, in the opinion of the investigator, prevent safe treatment. - Immunocompromised patients, e.g., patients who are known to be serologically positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and are receiving antiviral therapy (testing is not part of the protocol). - Patients with known (testing is not part of the protocol) active hepatic disease (i.e., Hepatitis B or C) due to risk of drug interactions with anti-viral therapy. - Any of the following cardiovascular events within 6 months prior to study entry: myocardial infarction, malignant hypertension, severe/unstable angina, symptomatic congestive heart failure, cerebral vascular accident, or transient ischemic attack - History or presence of clinically significant ventricular or atrial dysrhythmia > Grade 2 (NCI CTCAE v4.0) − Patients with chronic, rate-controlled atrial arrhythmias who do not have other cardiac abnormalities are eligible. - Major surgery within 3 weeks prior to first dose of study treatment, and patients must have recovered from the effects of surgery - Patients unable to swallow orally administered medication and patients with gastrointestinal disorders likely to interfere with absorption of the study medication - Refractory nausea and vomiting, chronic gastrointestinal diseases (e.g. inflammatory bowel disease) or significant bowel resection that would preclude adequate absorption - Patients with uncontrolled seizures - Inadequate bone marrow reserve within past 28 days prior to study treatment as demonstrated by: - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 1500/μl, - WBC ≤ 3x109/L - Platelet count (PLT) < 100,000/μl, or - Hemoglobin (Hgb) < 10 g/dL - Blood (packed red blood cells, platelets) transfusions within 1 month prior to study start - Whole blood transfusion in the last 120 days prior to entry to the study - Patients with concomitant use of drugs, herbal supplements and/or ingestion of foods known to strongly modulate CYP3A4 enzyme activity as specified in the drug specific appendix. - Women who are pregnant or lactating (breastfeeding) - Patients with a known hypersensitivity to olaparib or any of the excipients of the product. - Patients with a known hypersensitivity to the combination/comparator agent - Any other severe acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation or may interfere with the interpretation of study results − Patients considered a poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder, non-malignant systemic disease or active, uncontrolled infection. Examples include, but are not limited to, uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmia, superior vena cava syndrome, extensive bilateral lung disease on HRCT scan or any psychiatric disorder that prohibits obtaining informed consent - Psychological, familial, sociological, or geographical conditions that do not permit compliance with the protocol
