The purpose of this study is to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of olaparib in
combination with radical radiotherapy in patients with oesophageal cancer who are unsuitable
for platinum containing chemotherapy.
Radiation: Radical external beam radiotherapy, 50Gy in 25 fractions

> 18 years of age.
Adequate organ and bone marrow function measured within 28 days prior to administration of study treatment as defined below:
Haemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L
White blood cells (WBC) > 3 x 109/L

Evidence of non-childbearing status for women of childbearing potential, or postmenopausal status: negative urine or serum pregnancy test within 28 days of study treatment, confirmed prior to treatment on day 1. Postmenopausal is defined as:
Amenorrheic for 1 year or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments
Luteinizing hormone(LH) and Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels in the post menopausal range for women under 50,
radiation-induced oophorectomy with last menses >1 year ago,
chemotherapy-induced menopause with >1 year interval since last menses,
surgical sterilisation (bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy).
Patient willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing treatment and scheduled visits and examinations.
Fit to receive all study treatments
Swallowing sufficiently good to tolerate oral medication
Life expectancy ≥ 4 months.
Involvement in the planning and/or conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff and/or staff at the study site)
Previous enrolment in the present study

Any previous treatment with a poly adenosine diphosphate-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, including olaparib.
Patients with second primary cancer, except: adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, curatively treated in-situ cancer of the cervix, or other solid tumours curatively treated with no evidence of disease for ≥ 5 years.
Patients receiving the following classes of inhibitors of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4)
Major surgery within 2 weeks of starting study treatment and patients must have recovered from any effects of any major surgery.
Patients considered a poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder, non-malignant systemic disease or active, uncontrolled infection. Examples include, but are not limited to, uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmia, recent (within 3 months) myocardial infarction, uncontrolled major seizure disorder, or any psychiatric disorder that prohibits obtaining informed consent.
Patients with a history of interstitial lung disease, inflammatory lung conditions, or severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (FEV1<1litre or < 30% predicted). Patients with pneumonia within the previous 3 months.
Patients unable to swallow orally administered medication and patients with gastrointestinal disorders likely to interfere with absorption of the study medication.
Patients with oesophageal stent in-situ
Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukaemia
Immunocompromised patients, e.g., patients who are known to be serologically positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Patients with known active hepatic disease (i.e., Hepatitis B or C).

Age < 18
Any pregnant, lactating women or potentially childbearing patients not using adequate contraception (see section 3.4 for details of required contraception).
Previous chemotherapy or radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer
Metastatic disease apart from local lymph node disease which can be reasonably encompassed within the radiotherapy volume (total length of tumour and lymph node disease should be <10cm)
