The OncLive Ovarian Cancer condition center page is a comprehensive resource for clinical news and expert insights on ovarian cancer and evolving treatment approaches, including PARP inhibitors, antibody-drug conjugates, chemotherapy and more. This page features news articles, interviews in written and video format, and podcasts that focus on unmet needs, treatment advances, and ongoing research in ovarian cancer.
González-Martín discusses the updated long-term efficacy and safety data from the PRIMA study, the importance of utilizing PARP inhibitors in patients with homologous recombination–deficient tumors, and the benefit observed with niraparib in those with homologous recombination–proficient tumors.
Pafolacianine used during ovarian cancer surgery identified additional tumors that were not detected with conventional means and not otherwise planned for resection, according to results from a phase 3 study recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
Manufacturers of 3 PARP inhibitors—niraparib, olaparib, and rucaparib—have voluntarily withdrawn indications for heavily pretreated patients with BRCA-mutated ovarian cancer due to safety concerns.
Olaparib plus bevacizumab was approved in China as a first-line maintenance treatment for homologous recombination deficiency–positive ovarian cancer following a response to platinum-based chemotherapy plus bevacizumab.
Maintenance treatment with niraparib produced a sustained and durable progression-free survival benefit in patients with primary advanced ovarian cancer who responded to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy, spanning biomarker subgroups.
A supplemental new drug application and a Type II variation has been submitted to the FDA and the European Medicines Agency, respectively, seeking the approval of rucaparib as frontline maintenance treatment in women with advanced ovarian cancer irrespective of biomarker status who have responded to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy.
The investigational carcinoembryonic antigen claudin 6 (CLDN6)–directed CAR T-cell therapy BNT211-01 displayed clinical activity both as monotherapy and in combination with a CLDN6-encoding mRNA vaccine in patients with CLDN6-positive relapsed/refractory advanced solid tumors.
Two years of olaparib maintenance therapy elicited a long-term overall survival benefit vs placebo in patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer harboring a BRCA mutation.
Maintenance olaparib plus bevacizumab following first-line standard-of-care treatment improved overall survival in patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer, particularly those with homologous recombination deficiency.
Pembrolizumab monotherapy and in combination with anlotinib demonstrated encouraging efficacy and safety when administered to patients with refractory or platinum-resistant recurrent high-grade serous ovarian cancer.
Maintenance therapy with niraparib significantly improved progression-free survival compared with placebo in Chinese patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer who achieved a complete response or partial response to first-line chemotherapy.
The European Medicines Agency Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use has recommended that rucaparib no longer be used as monotherapy for the third-line treatment of patients with platinum-sensitive, relapsed or progressive BRCA-mutated high-grade epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
The combination of ofranergene obadenovec and paclitaxel failed to elicit a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival or overall survival compared with paclitaxel alone in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, missing the coprimary end points of the OVAL trial.
The combination of niraparib and dostarlimab produced a low overall response rate in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer without a known BRCA mutation who had progressed and received prior bevacizumab, one that did not reach the threshold for second-stage accrual to the phase 2 MOONSTONE/GOG-3032 trial.
Rucaparib elicited a significant improvement in progression-free survival outcomes vs placebo as first-line maintenance therapy in patients with ovarian cancer who responded to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy across patient subgroups.
Twice-daily oral ruxolitinib plus carboplatin and paclitaxel given as frontline neoadjuvant and post-surgical treatment to patients with stage III or IV ovarian cancer was found to be feasible and to improve progression-free survival compared with chemotherapy alone.
Galinpepimut-S in combination with the PD-1 inhibitor pembrolizumab elicited a clinical benefit in patients with Wilms’ tumor-1-positive relapsed/refractory platinum-resistant advanced metastatic ovarian cancer, according to top line-line data from a phase 1/2 trial (NCT03761914).
Despite numerous well-designed and conducted randomized trials, a definitive answer to the role of specific disease management remains unclear, particularly in the discussions of the optimal role for the regional delivery of cytotoxic chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with ovarian cancer.
The addition of navicixizumab to paclitaxel produced encouraging responses with manageable toxicity in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer irrespective of prior treatment with bevacizumab.
The FDA has granted a fast track designation to VB-111, a targeted anticancer viral gene therapy, for use as a potential therapeutic option in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer.
