Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Breast | Small Cell Lung Cancer | Ovarian | Gastropathy | Stomach Discomfort | Oat cell carcinoma | Gastric Cancer | Stomach Cancer
  • Age: Between 18 - 130 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically or cytologically confirmed progressive advanced or metastatic solid tumor of one of the following:
  • Platinum sensitive relapsed small cell lung cancer (module 1)
  • gBRCAm HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer (module 2)
  • gBRCAm ovarian cancer (modules 3 and 5)
  • Metastatic or relapsed Gastric cancer (adenocarcinoma) (module 4)
  • gBRCAm negative ovarian cancer (modules 6 and 7)
  • BRCAm (including germline and tumor BRCA1/2 mutations) human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer patients with metastatic or locally advanced disease, which is unresectable (or the patient is not a candidate for resection) (Module 8 BRCAm)
  • Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer patients with metastatic or locally advanced disease, which is unresectable (or the patient is not a candidate for resection) Patients must have documented evidence from Myriad central tumor testing that they do not have a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 that is predicted to be deleterious or suspected deleterious (known or predicted to be detrimental/lead to loss of function) and do have a deleterious or suspected deleterious mutation in at least 1 of the following 13 HRR genes: ATM, BARD1, BRIP1, CDK12, CHEK1, CHEK2, FANCL, PALB2, PPP2R2A, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D, RAD54L. (Module 9 HRRm).
  • Breast cancer patients with metastatic or locally advanced disease, which is unresectable (or the patient is not a candidate for resection). Patients must have documented evidence from Myriad central tumor testing that they do not have any mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, BARD1, BRIP1, CDK12, CHEK1, CHEK2, FANCL, PALB2, PPP2R2A, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D, RAD54L that is predicted to be deleterious or suspected deleterious (known or predicted to be detrimental/lead to loss of function) (Module 10 TNBC).
  • At least one measurable lesion that can be accurately assessed at baseline by computed tomography (CT) (or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] suitable for assessment as per RECIST 1.1. The baseline scan must be obtained within 28 days prior to the first dose of olaparib.
  • Male or female patients, age 18 years (19 years for South Korea)
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-1
  • Life expectancy 12 weeks
  • Adequate organ and marrow function
  • Ability to swallow oral medications (capsules and tablets) without chewing, breaking, crushing, opening or otherwise altering the product formulation. Patients should not have gastrointestinal illnesses that would preclude the absorption of olaparib, which is an oral agent. For the gastric cancer cohort, patients with a full or partial gastrectomy will be permitted.
  • Ability of patient to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document prior to any protocol related procedures, including screening evaluations.
  • Female patients must either:
  • Be of non-reproductive potential OR
  • Have a negative serum pregnancy test within 28 days of study treatment and confirmed prior to treatment on Day 1, and agree to use contraception if they or their partner are of reproductive potential

Exclusion criteria

  • Prior chemotherapy or other systemic anticancer therapy within 4 weeks prior to start of olaparib treatment, 6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin. Exceptions include: Anti-hormonal treatment for ER positive or PR positive breast cancer is allowed until 7 days prior to treatment with olaparib, exposure to an investigational agent within 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is the longer) prior to start of olaparib treatment is not allowed, prior receipt of biologics targeting T cell co-regulatory proteins and/or immune checkpoints is not allowed. Examples include MEDI4736 or other PD1 or PD-L1 or PD-L2 inhibitors or anti-CTLA4 therapy, previous treatment with a PARP inhibitor, is not allowed.
  • Radiation therapy within 4 weeks prior to start of olaparib treatment (includes radiation targeting bone metastases) or radionuclide treatment within 6 weeks of treatment start.
  • Current dependency on total parenteral nutrition or IV fluid hydration.
  • Concomitant use of known strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A (CYP3A) inhibitors or moderate CYP3A inhibitors. Concomitant use of known strong or moderate CYP3A inducers.
  • Concomitant therapy with any other anticancer therapy or chronic use of systemic corticosteroids.
  • Previous allogenic bone marrow transplant or double umbilical cord blood transplantation
  • Whole blood transfusions in the last 120 days
  • Patients with symptomatic or uncontrolled brain metastases.
  • Patients being considered at poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder or non-malignant systemic disease.
  • Any psychiatric disorder that prohibits obtaining informed consent
  • Major surgery or significant traumatic injury within 2 weeks of run-in
  • Immunocompromised patients
  • QTc prolongation >470 msec or other significant ECG abnormality noted within 14 days of treatment
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women are excluded.
  • Involvement in the planning and/or conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff and/or staff at the study site)
  • Previous enrolment in the present study
  • Participation in a clinical study within 28 days or 5 half-lives of the drug, whichever is longer.
