The purpose of this trial is to explore the clinical utility of several therapies in patients with advanced cancer. This is a multi-center, open-label Phase I/Ib study. The study consists of a dose escalation part, a dose expansion part testing KAZ954 as a single agent or KAZ954 in combination with PDR001, NZV930 and NIR178. The dose escalation parts will estimate the MTD and/or RD and test different dosing schedules. The dose expansion parts of the study will use the MTD/RDE determined in the dose escalation part to assess the activity, safety and tolerability of the investigational products in patients with specific types of cancer. Approximately 135 adult patients with advanced solid tumors will be enrolled.
