This is an open-label, multicenter, basket trial Phase II study to evaluate the antitumor activity of RO6874281 in combination with atezolizumab in participants with advanced and/or metastatic solid tumors.

Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Participants who have progressed on at least one previous regimen of anticancer therapy (chemotherapy, mutation targeted therapy, and/or CPI therapy)
  • Measurable disease, as defined by RECIST Version 1.1
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status 0 or 1 or Karnofsky Performance Score greater than or equal to (>=) 70
  • Life expectancy of >=12 weeks
  • Confirmed at least one tumor lesion with location accessible to safely biopsy per clinical judgment of the treating physician (not applicable to Part 1 Cohort A)
  • Consent to provide an archival tumor tissue sample (if available, applicable to all participants)
  • Willingness to undergo baseline and on-treatment tumor biopsies for pharmacodynamics (PD) biomarker analysis (not applicable to Part 1 Cohort A)
  • Adequate cardiovascular function as defined in the study protocol
  • AEs related to any previous radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or surgical procedure must have resolved to Grade less than or equal to (<=) 1, except alopecia (any grade) and Grade 2 peripheral neuropathy
  • Adequate haematological, liver, and renal functions.
  • Participants with unilateral pleural effusion (indications other than NSCLC) are eligible if they fulfill both of the following: (a) New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class 1; (b) Global initiative for obstructive lung disease test level 1 (forced expiratory volume 1 / forced vital capacity less than [<] 0.7 and forced expiratory volume >=80 percent [%] predicted) (use of bronchodilators allowed)
  • Participants with Gilbert's syndrome will be eligible for the study

CPI-Naïve Participants (Part 1 Cohort A + C):

  • Participants must not have received CPI therapy (for example, anti- cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 [anti-CTLA-4], anti-programmed death-1 [anti-PD-1]/ anti-PD-L1) before study enrollment
  • Participant must have progressed on at least one previous systemic therapy for advanced or metastatic disease
  • Participants may be enrolled if they are ineligible for standard of care (SoC) therapy or if they are not willing to receive conventional therapy
  • Participants whose tumors have a known sensitizing mutation (for example, Epidermal growth factor receptor [EGFR], Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase [ALK] etc.) must have experienced disease progression (during or after treatment) or intolerance to treatment with a respective targeted therapy

CPI-Experienced Participants (Part 1 Cohort B and Part III Cohort H):

  • Participants must have experienced documented disease progression on or after CPI therapy (investigational or approved)
  • The CPI may have been administered as monotherapy or as part of a combination regimen at any time during the anti-cancer treatment before study enrollment
  • Participants with suspected or documented disease progression within the first 12 weeks of CPI therapy may not be eligible and require discussion with the Sponsor. Screening tumor assessment should confirm previous progression
  • No history of severe immune-related adverse effects from CPI treatment (National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for AEs [NCI CTCAE] Grade 3 and 4)

CPI-Experienced Participants (Part 1 Cohort D):

  • Participants who experienced disease progression during or following treatment with a platinum-containing regimen and a checkpoint inhibitor, given in combination as one line of therapy or as two separate lines of therapy.
  • Participants should have experienced disease progression on docetaxel therapy.

Participants with High-Tumor PD-L1 Expression (Part 2 Cohort E) - Participants with a PD-L1 TPS greater than 50%, who have not received any prior systemic therapy for metastatic NSCLC and who must not have any target mutations and/or rearrangements.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Symptomatic or untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases
  • History of treated asymptomatic CNS metastases as described in the protocol
  • Spinal cord compression not definitively treated with surgery and/or radiation or previously diagnosed and treated spinal cord compression without evidence that disease has been clinically stable for >=2 weeks before enrollment
  • Leptomeningeal disease
  • An active second malignancy
  • Penetrating tumor infiltration
  • Evidence of significant, uncontrolled concomitant diseases that could affect compliance with the protocol or interpretation of results
  • Episode of significant cardiovascular/cerebrovascular acute disease within 6 months before study treatment administration
  • History of significant vascular disease (for example, aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection)
  • Peripheral arterial thrombosis within 6 months before study treatment administration
  • Active or uncontrolled infections
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or hepatitis B or hepatitis C virus infection
  • Known active bacterial, viral, fungal, mycobacterial, parasitic, or other infection (excluding fungal infections of nail beds) or any major episode of infection requiring treatment with IV antibiotics or hospitalization within 4 weeks before study treatment administration
  • History of chronic liver disease or evidence of hepatic cirrhosis
  • Serious, non-healing wound; active ulcer; or untreated bone fracture
  • Dementia or altered mental status that would prohibit informed consent
  • History of, active or suspicion of autoimmune disease
  • History of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonitis (including drug-induced), organizing pneumonia (bronchiolitis obliterans, cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, etc.), or evidence of active pneumonitis on screening chest computed tomography (CT) scan. History of radiation pneumonitis in the radiation field (fibrosis) is permitted
  • Bilateral pleural effusion confirmed by X-ray
  • Any other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding that give reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that would contraindicate the use of an investigational drug
  • Concurrent therapy with any other investigational drug
  • Immunomodulating agents as described in study protocol
  • Chronic use of steroids
  • Radiotherapy within the last 4 weeks before start of study treatment administration, with the exception of limited field palliative radiotherapy
  • Administration of a live, attenuated vaccine within 4 weeks before Cycle 1 Day 1 or at any time during the study and 5 months after the last dose of atezolizumab
  • Major surgery or significant traumatic injury <28 days before study treatment administration (excluding fine needle biopsies) or anticipation of the need for major surgery during study treatment
  • Known hypersensitivity to any of the components of the RO6874281 drug product or atezolizumab drug product

CPI-Experienced Participants Only (Part 1 Cohort B + D):

  • Participants who discontinued CPI therapy for CPI-associated toxicity or intolerability
