This global, multicenter, open-label study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of MPDL3280A in combination with other immune-modulating therapies in the treatment of selected advanced or metastatic malignancies. The MPDL3280A plus ipilimumab arm (Arm A) will focus primarily on patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC. The MPDL3280A plus interferon alfa-2b arm (Arm B) will enroll patients with advanced or metastatic RCC and melanoma. MPDL3280A will be administered intravenously every 3 weeks (q3w).

Primary Outcome Measures:

  • Incidence of adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after last dose of study drug ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Best overall response, as determined by investigator assessment using conventional RECIST v1.1 and modified RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: From first study treatment to disease progression, assessed up to 3 years ]

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From first study treatment to death, assessed up to 3 years ]
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From first study treatment to first occurence of disease progression or death, assessed up to 3 years ]
  • Objective response (partial response plus complete response), confirmed by repeat assessments >/= 4 weeks after initial documentation and determined by investigator assessment using conventional RECIST v1.1 and modified RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: From first study treatment to disease progression, assessed up to 3 years ]
  • Serum concentrations of study drugs, MPDL3280A and ipilimumab administered in combination [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ]
  • Serum concentrations of study drugs, MPDL3280A and interferon alfa-2b administered in combination [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ]
