  • Measurable disease by RECIST v1.1
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 1

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed metastatic CRC. Patients in the Arm A Safety Expansion Cohort must have mCRC for which established therapies have proved ineffective or intolerable. Patients with malignancies other than CRC within 5 years prior to Day 1 (except for those with a negligible risk of metastasis or death, such as adequately treated carcinoma in situ of the cervix, basal or squamous cell skin cancer, localized prostate cancer treated surgically with curative intent, or ductal carcinoma in situ treated surgically with curative intent) are not eligible.
  • Arm A Safety Expansion Cohort: Up to 10 patients with CRC and high microsatellite instability (MSI-H) tumors will be enrolled.

Arm A RCC Cohort:

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any approved anti-cancer therapy, including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiotherapy, or herbal therapy intended as anti-cancer therapy, within 3 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment; the following are allowed: hormonal therapy with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists or antagonists for prostate cancer, hormone-replacement therapy, and palliative radiotherapy for bone metastases > 2 weeks prior to Day 1

  • Initiation of oral antibiotics < 14 days prior to Day 1
  • History of myocardial infarction, unstable angina or stroke with 6 months prior to Day 1.
  • Administration of a live, attenuated vaccine within 4 weeks before Day 1 or anticipation that such a live attenuated vaccine will be required during the study
  • Any bevacizumab-specific exclusion criteria

Exclusion Criteria Unique to Arm A RCC Cohort

Exclusion Criteria Unique to Arm B:

  • Prior treatment with an oxaliplatin-containing regimen. Oxaliplatin > 12 months prior to the diagnosis of metastatic disease is permitted.
  • Known dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency or thymidylate synthase gene polymorphism predisposing the patient for 5-FU toxicity.

Exclusion Criteria Unique to Arms C, D, and E:

  • Prior chemotherapy for locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC.
  • For patients who received prior adjuvant/neo-adjuvant chemotherapy or chemoradiation for NSCLC, a treatment-free interval > 6 months between the last treatment administration and the date of recurrence in required.
  • Patients with a known EGFR sensitizing mutation must have experienced disease progression during or after treatment with an approved EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
  • Patients with a known ALK fusion oncogene must have experienced disease progression during or after treatment with crizotinib.
  • For Arm D (carboplatin + pemetrexed), squamous cell histology or evidence of mixed NSCLC histology with a predominance of the squamous cell type.
  • For Arm D (carboplatin + pemetrexed), inability to discontinue treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 5 days.

Exclusion Criteria Unique to Arm F:

  • Prior therapy with more than two cytotoxic regimens for metastatic or locally advanced TNBC
  • Treatment with a taxane-containing regimen within 6 months before enrollment
