2020 Year in Review - Ovarian Cancer

Personalized starting doses of niraparib based on body weight and platelet count are associated with reductions in thrombocytopenia and other hematologic events.
Treatment with rucaparib was associated with improvements in progression-free survival, time to first subsequent treatment, and other post-progression efficacy end points.
Results from a previous study indicated that treatment with the combination would lead to improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) compared with treatment with olaparib alone.
When utilized as maintenance therapy after frontline treatment of ovarian cancer in patients with BRCAwt tumors, niraparib improved progression-free survival (PFS), even in the most difficult-to-treat patients.
In this study, researchers explored whether there is a potential synergistic effect of olaparib when combined with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin, highlighting a potential means to improve tolerability.
The phase 3 ENGOT-ov50/GOG-3029/INNOVATE-3 study is exploring the use of an antimitotic therapy tumor treating (TT) fields plus weekly paclitaxel in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer.
The combination of lenvatinib + pembrolizumab exhibited a manageable safety profile and encouraging efficacy in patients with heavily pretreated ovarian cancer, as well as those with a previous history of treatment failure.
In the phase 2 OVARIO study, median progression-free survival (PFS) has not yet been reached in women with advanced ovarian cancer who are being treated with the combination of niraparib and bevacizumab after response to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy plus bevacizumab. The combination did not appear to cause cumulative toxicities.
Are patient-reported outcomes (PROs) similar in the placebo and the niraparib groups, suggesting that over the course of treatment niraparib does not adversely affect patients’ quality of life? Results of the PRIMA/ENGOT-OV26/GOG-3012 trial begin to elucidate the answer to this question.
