Brief Summary:
Evaluation of the efficacy of the combination of olaparib and trabectedin in adult patients with locally advanced/metastatic solid tumors that failed standard treatment and whose molecular sequencing tumor profiles show homologous recombination repair (HRR) defects. The primary objective is to show superior disease control rate in patients with HRR-deficient tumors treated with olaparib and trabectedin compared to treatment according to current guidelines (physician's choice). This trial aims to establish whether the PARP-dependency of HRR-deficient tumors across entities can be exploited for therapeutic benefit.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease Control Rate [ Time Frame: At week 16 (after 5 cycles of study medication) ]
    Randomized, open-label, multicenter phase-II study comparing olaparib in combination with trabectedin versus physician's choice. Primary efficacy endpoint is the disease control rate after 5 cycles.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Time from first administration of the IMP to time death from any cause until end of study (2.5 years) ]
    defined as the time from first administration of the IMP to time of death from any cause

  2. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Time from first administration of the IMP to subjects end of trial (approximately month 6) ]
    This endpoint includes all AEs, their severity, SAEs, the relation of AEs to the study treatment, dose modifications for toxicity and discontinuation of study treatment during the trial phase. Toxic effects will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria.

  3. Patient reported outcomes [ Time Frame: Before the first (week 0), at the third (week 8), and after the fifth treatment cycle (week 16) ]
    Patient reported outcomes (PROs) including health-related quality of life (QoL) are calculated as the new European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC). QLQ-C30 summary score recommended by teh EORTC Quality of Life Group. In addition, the EORTC QLQ function and symptom scores are calculated according to the actual EORTC Scoring Manual.

  4. Tumor response rate [ Time Frame: At week 16 (after 5 cycles of study medication) ]
    Defined as the sum of complete remission (CR) and partial remission (PR) according to RECIST version 1.1 after 5 cycles of study medication
