Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to test how well patients with advanced solid tumors and ovarian cancer respond to treatment with elimusertib in combination with niraparib. In addition researchers want to find for patients the optimal dose of elimusertib in combination with niraparib, how the drug is tolerated and the way the body absorbs, distributes and discharges the drug. The study medication elimusertib works by blocking a substance produced by the body (ATR Kinase) which is important for the growth of tumor cells. Niraparib works by blocking a substance produced by the body (PARP enzymes) in a way that tumor cells can be killed, or made more susceptible to chemotherapy.
