Olaparib Maintenance Monotherapy in Patients With BRCA Mutated Ovarian Cancer Following First Line Platinum Based Chemotherapy.
This study is being carried out to see if a new treatment being tested, called olaparib, is effective in treating ovarian cancer and preventing it from coming back as quickly as it could otherwise do without any medication. The current medical practice is not to take further medications until the cancer comes back.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
Collaborator: Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
- Drug: Olaparib 300mg tablets
- Female patients with newly diagnosed, histologically confirmed, high risk advanced
(FIGO stage III - IV) BRCA mutated high grade serous or high grade endometrioid
ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal cancer and / or fallopian - tube cancer who have
completed first line platinum based chemotherapy (intravenous or intraperitoneal).
- Stage III patients must have had one attempt at optimal debulking surgery (upfront or
interval debulking). Stage IV patients must have had either a biopsy and/or upfront or
interval debulking surgery.
- Documented mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 that is predicted to be deleterious or suspected
deleterious (known or predicted to be detrimental/lead to loss of function).
- Patients who have completed first line platinum (e.g. carboplatin or cisplatin),
containing therapy (intravenous or intraperitoneal) prior to randomisation:
- Patients must have, in the opinion of the investigator, clinical complete response or
partial response and have no clinical evidence of disease progression on the post
treatment scan or rising CA-125 level, following completion of this chemotherapy
course. Patients with stable disease on the post-treatment scan at completion of first
line platinum-containing therapy are not eligible for the study.
- Patients must be randomized within 8 weeks of their last dose of chemotherapy
- BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutations that are considered to be non detrimental (e.g. "Variants
of uncertain clinical significance" or "Variant of unknown significance" or "Variant,
favor polymorphism" or "benign polymorphism" etc).
- Patients with early stage disease (FIGO Stage I, IIA, IIB or IIC)
- Stable disease or progressive disease on the post-treatment scan or clinical evidence
of progression at the end of the patient's first line chemotherapy treatment.
- Patients where more than one debulking surgery has been performed before randomisation
to the study. (Patients who, at the time of diagnosis, are deemed to be unresectable
and undergo only a biopsy or oophorectomy but then go on to receive chemotherapy and
interval debulking surgery are eligible).
- Patients who have previously been diagnosed and treated for earlier stage ovarian,
fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer.
- Patients who have previously received chemotherapy for any abdominal or pelvic tumour,
including treatment for prior diagnosis at an earlier stage for their ovarian,
fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer. (Patients who have received prior
adjuvant chemotherapy for localised breast cancer may be eligible, provided that it
was completed more than three years prior to registration, and that the patient
remains free of recurrent or metastatic disease).
- Patients with synchronous primary endometrial cancer unless both of the following
criteria are met: 1) stage <2 2) less than 60 years old at the time of diagnosis of
endometrial cancer with stage IA or IB grade 1 or 2, or stage IA grade 3 endometrioid
adenocarcinoma OR ≥ 60 years old at the time of diagnosis of endometrial cancer with
Stage IA grade 1 or 2 endometrioid adenocarcinoma. Patients with serous or clear cell
adenocarcinoma or carcinosarcoma of the endometrium are not eligible.
