  4. Recommended expansion dose (RED) [ Time Frame: From signing of ICF until 10 weeks following the last dose or start of new anticancer therapy. ]
    Based on incidence and nature of DLTs, and incidence, nature, and severity of AEs and serious adverse events (SAEs)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serum concentration - time profiles [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Including parameters like maximal serum concentration (Cmax), time at Cmax (Tmax), minimal serum concentration (Cmin)

  2. Area under the serum concentration-time curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis of MP0310

  3. Total clearance (CL) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

    PK analysis of MP0310

  6. Accumulation ratio [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    PK analysis of MP0310

  7. Incidence of anti-drug-antibodies [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

  8. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    The proportion of participants with confirmed complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1 and Immunotherapy Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (iRECIST)

  9. Disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Stable disease lasting 4 or more weeks following the initiation of MP0310

  10. Duration of response (DoR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
