A Phase Ib Study of the Safety and Pharmacology of Atezolizumab (Anti-PD-L1 Antibody) Administered With Bevacizumab and/or Chemotherapy in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

This open-label, Phase Ib study that has six treatment arms is designed to assess the safety, pharmacology and preliminary efficacy of atezolizumab (MPDL3280A; an engineered anti-programmed death-ligand 1 [PDL1] antibody) administered with bevacizumab (Arm A) and with bevacizumab plus oxaliplatin, leucovorin, and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (FOLFOX) (Arm B), with carboplatin and paclitaxel (Arm C), with carboplatin and pemetrexed (Arm D), with carboplatin and nab-paclitaxel (Arm E), and with nab-paclitaxel (Arm F) in participants with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The study includes dose escalation cohort for establishing the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or maximum administered dose (MAD) and then expansion cohort will be initiated based on a selected dose level at or below the MTD or MAD.

The following histological types are eligible: Adenocarcinoma NOS, clear cell adenocarcinoma, endometriod adenocarcinoma, malignant Brenner's tumour, mixed epithelial carcinoma, mucinous adenocarcinoma, serous adenocarcinoma, transitional cell carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma

        Bladder Cancer:

         - Histologically or cytologically documented locally advanced (T4b, any N; or any T, N 2-3) or metastatic (M1, Stage IV) transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelium (including renal pelvis, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra)

         - Participants with mixed histologies are required to have a dominant transitional cell pattern

         - Locally advanced bladder cancer must be inoperable based on involvement of pelvic sidewall or adjacent viscera (clinical stage T4b) or bulky nodal metastasis (N2-N3)

         - Disease progression during or following treatment with at least one platinum-containing regimen (e.g., GC, MVAC, CarboGem, etc.) for inoperable locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma or disease recurrence

        Cervical Cancer:

         - Persistent or recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix (including adenosquamous tumors)

        Arms C, D, and E Cohorts:

        - Histologically or cytologically documented Stage IIIB (not eligible for definitive chemoradiotherapy), Stage IV, or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

        Arm F Cohort:

         - Histologically confirmed estrogen receptor (ER)-, progesterone receptor (PR)-, and human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-negative (triple-negative) adenocarcinoma of the breast that has been treated with systemic cytotoxic therapy. Locally recurrent disease must not be amenable to resection with curative intent

         - Participants with tumors amenable to excisional, punch, or core needle biopsy are eligible for a separate biopsy expansion cohort
