Brief Summary:

This study has 2 parts. The first part is open to adults with different types of advanced cancer (solid tumors). The second part is open to people with specific types of soft tissue sarcoma, advanced lung cancer, and cancer in the stomach, bladder or bile ducts.

The participants get a combination of 2 medicines called BI 907828 and ezabenlimab (also called BI 754091). BI 907828 is a so-called MDM2 inhibitor that is being developed to treat cancer. Ezabenlimab is an antibody that may help the immune system fight cancer (immune checkpoint inhibitor). When the study started, some participants got a third medicine called BI 754111 in addition. Treatment with BI 754111 was stopped because data from another study showed no additional effect of BI 754111.

The purpose of the first part of the study is to find out the highest dose of BI 907828 that the participants can tolerate in combination with ezabenlimab. Once the best dose of BI 907828 for the combination with ezabenlimab is found, it will be used in the second part of the study.

The purpose of the second part is to see whether the combination of BI 907828 with ezabenlimab is able to make tumors shrink.

The participants are in the study as long as they benefit from and can tolerate treatment. During this time, they get infusions of ezabenlimab, and take tablets with BI 907828 every 3 weeks. The doctors check how many participants have health problems during the study. The doctors also monitor the size of the tumour.

  • Active infection requiring systemic treatment (antibacterial, antiviral, or antifungal therapy) at start of treatment in this trial.
  • Any of the following cardiac criteria:

    • Mean resting corrected QT interval (QTc) >470 msec
    • Any clinically important abnormalities (as assessed by the Investigator) in rhythm, conduction, or morphology of resting ECGs, e.g., complete left bundle branch block, third degree heart block
    • Any factor that increases the risk of QTc prolongation or risk of arrhythmic events such as heart failure, hypokalaemia, congenital long QT syndrome, family history of long QT syndrome or unexplained sudden death under 40 years-of-age, or any concomitant medication known to prolong the QT interval
    • Patients with an ejection fraction (EF) <50% or the lower limit of normal of the institutional standard will be excluded. Only in cases where the Investigator (or the treating physician or both) suspects cardiac disease with negative effect on the EF, will the EF be measured during screening using an appropriate method according to local standards to confirm eligibility (e.g., echocardiogram, multi-gated acquisition scan). A historic measurement of EF no older than 6 months prior to first administration of study drug can be accepted provided that there is clinical evidence that the EF value has not worsened since this measurement in the opinion of the Investigator or of the treating physician or both.
