The study will include a safety run-in phase (Stage 1) and a randomization phase (Stage 2).

The purpose of Stage 1 is to evaluate the safety of cobimetinib when administered in combination with niraparib (Cohort 1) and cobimetinib with niraparib plus atezolizumab (Cohort 2).

Stage 1 will enable patient enrollment in the randomized phase of the study (Stage 2) with both regimens at the recommended dose levels from Stage 1.

Stage 2 is a randomized, dose-expansion phase, evaluating clinical outcomes in patients with advanced platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer.

All patients will continue to receive study treatment until disease progression (according to "Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors" (RECIST), Version 1.1, unacceptable toxicity, death, or patient or investigator decision to withdraw, whichever occurs first.
