Objectives: Primary Objective: To establish the safety and tolerability of Selinexor when given in combination with standard chemotherapy regimens. Secondary Objectives: To determine disease control and progression free survival of Selinexor administered with standard chemotherapy treatments. Exploratory Objectives: To determine the correlation of translational biomarkers To compare serial assessment of mutation status in biopsies obtained at baseline and progression after clinical response to combination therapy

Study summary:

This is an open label, single center Phase IB combination therapy study in metastatic or locally advanced cancers. The addition of Selinexor to multiple standard chemotherapy regimens will be tested in parallel. Two types of patients may be enrolled in this study: (1) advanced staged cancer patients either unresponsive or relapsed following prior standard therapy or for whom there is no known effective therapy; OR (2) advanced stage cancer patients for whom the standard chemotherapy treatment to which Selinexor is added is considered an appropriate and acceptable therapy. Patients who meet these criteria may in some cases have received no prior chemotherapy. Study Groups: If participant is found to be eligible to take part in this study, their doctor will decide which part of the study they will be in based on the type of tumor they have. The study doctor will discuss this with participant. - If participant is in Group A, they will receive selinexor and carboplatin. - If participant is in Group B, they will receive selinexor and paclitaxel. - If participant is in Group C, they will receive selinexor and eribulin. - If participant is in Group D, they will receive selinexor, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide. - If participant is in Group E, they will receive selinexor, carboplatin, and paclitaxel. - If participant is in Group F, they will receive selinexor, carboplatin, and pemetrexed. - If participant is in Group G, they will receive selinexor and topotecan. - If participant is in Group H, they will receive selinexor in combination with FOLFIRI. - If participant is in Group I, they will receive selinexor in combination with irinotecan. - If participant is in Group J, they will receive selinexor in combination with XELOX. - If participant is in Group K, they will receive selinexor in combination with olaparib. - If participant is in Group L, they will receive selinexor in combination with pembrolizumab. - If participant is in Group M, they will receive: selinexor in combination with nivolumab. Up to 588 participants will be enrolled in this study. All will take part at MD Anderson.

Renal function defined as a calculated or measured glomerular filtration rate (GFR) >/=30 mL/min. For Arm F Carboplatin and Pemetrexed, GFR >/=45 mL/min. 10. The patient has recovered to Grade </= 1 by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, Version 4.03 (NCI-CTCAE v4.03) from the effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, or other targeted therapies, with the exception of alopecia. The exceptions for such effects are allowed lab values of </= Grade 2 specified elsewhere in these inclusion criteria. 11. Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks. 12. Able to swallow and retain oral medication. 13. Patients must give informed consent according to the rules and regulations of the individual participating sites. 14. Negative serum pregnancy test in women of childbearing potential within 7 days of first dose of treatment and patients of child-bearing potential must agree to use effective contraception during/after 3 months post dose. A woman of childbearing potential is defined as a premenopausal female capable of becoming pregnant. This includes women on oral, injectable or mechanical contraception; women who are single and women whose male sexual partners have been vasectomized or whose male sexual partners have received or are utilizing mechanical contraceptive devices. 15. If in Arm D (Doxorubicin and Cyclophosphamide), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >/= 50% as measured by echocardiogram (ECHO) within 4 weeks prior to study drug administration. Exclusion Criteria: 1. Evidence of complete or partial bowel obstruction. 2. Patients with primary CNS tumor or CNS tumor involvement. However, patients with metastatic CNS tumors may participate in this study if the patient is: > 4 weeks from prior therapy completion (including radiation and/or surgery); Clinically stable with respect to the CNS tumor at the time of study entry; Not receiving steroid therapy in treating CNS tumor or CNS tumor involvement; Not receiving anti-convulsive medications (that were started for brain metastases). 3.

Uncontrolled active infection requiring parenteral antibiotics, antivirals, or antifungals within one week prior to the first dose. Active infection with concurrent treatment is acceptable only if the patient is clinically stable. 13. Significantly diseased (as determined by the PI or treating physician) or obstructed gastrointestinal tract or uncontrolled vomiting or diarrhea. 14. Treatment with an investigational anti-cancer study drug within 3 weeks prior to study drug administration date. 15. Concurrent therapy with approved or investigational anticancer therapeutics. 16.

Men whose partner is a woman of child-bearing potential, (i.e. biologically able to conceive), and who is not employing two forms of highly effective contraception. Highly effective contraception (e.g. male condom with spermicide, diaphragm with spermicide, intra-uterine device) must be used by both sexes during the study and must be continued for 3 months after the end of study treatment. Women of child-bearing potential is defined as sexually mature women who are not surgically sterile or who have not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (e.g., who has had menses any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months). 18.
