The Phase 1b part of this study is conducted to assess the safety and tolerability of E7386 in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with previously treated selected solid tumors, and to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of E7386 in combination with pembrolizumab.
The Phase 2 part of this study is conducted to assess the objective response rate (ORR) of E7386 in combination with pembrolizumab (melanoma, colorectal cancer [CRC], hepatocellular carcinoma [HCC]) or of E7386 in combination with pembrolizumab plus lenvatinib (HCC) according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1.

Experimental: Phase 1b and 2: E7386 + Pembrolizumab
Participants will receive E7386 twice daily (BID) along with pembrolizumab 200 mg intravenous (IV) infusion once every 3 weeks (Q3W) in 21-day treatment cycle until RP2D is determined in Phase 1b. The recommended dose for Phase 2 part of the study will be based on Phase 1b result. Participants will continue to receive study treatment in Phase 2 part until disease progression, development of unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or termination of the study.
Pembrolizumab IV infusion.
Experimental: Phase 2: E7386 + Pembrolizumab + Lenvatinib
Participants will be randomized to receive E7386 Dose 1 (Cohort 1) or Dose 2 (Cohort 2) tablet, BID, orally in combination with pembrolizumab 200 mg Q3W IV infusion plus lenvatinib 8 mg capsule, orally, once daily (QD) continuously in 21-days treatment cycles until disease progression, development of unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or termination of the study. The dose of treatment depends on tolerability data of both Cohorts.
Pembrolizumab IV infusion.

- Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: From the date of first documented CR or PR until first documentation of recurrent or progressive disease or death due to any causes (up to approximately 3 years 11 months) ]DOR is defined as the time from the first documentation of CR or PR to the first documentation of disease progression or death due to any causes, whichever occurs first in participants with confirmed CR or PR as per RECIST version 1.1.
- Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until PD or death, development of unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or study termination (up to approximately 3 years 11 months) ]DCR is defined as the percentage of participants with BOR of confirmed CR, PR, or SD after >=5 weeks from first dose per RECIST version 1.1.
- Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until PD or death, development of unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or study termination (up to approximately 3 years 11 months) ]CBR is defined as the percentage of participants who have a BOR of confirmed CR, PR, or durable SD (duration of SD >=23 weeks) per RECIST 1.1.
