Olaparib in gBRCA Mutated Pancreatic Cancer Whose Disease Has Not Progressed on First Line Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of the study drug, Olaparib, when compared to a Placebo in patients with gBRCA Mutated Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer. In addition, the study aims to get a better understanding of the safety and tolerability of Olaparib maintenance monotherapy. Finally, we hope to study the effects of Olaparib on the participant's quality of life.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

Phase 3


Key Inclusion Criteria

   - Histologically or cytologically confirmed pancreas adenocarcinoma receiving initial
   chemotherapy for metastatic disease and without evidence of disease progression on

   - Patients with measurable disease and/or non-measurable or no evidence of disease
   assessed at baseline by CT (or MRI where CT is contraindicated) will be entered in
   this study.

   - Documented mutation in gBRCA1 or gBRCA2 that is predicted to be deleterious or
   suspected deleterious

   - Patients are on treatment with a first line platinum-based (cisplatin, carboplatin or
   oxaliplatin) regimen for metastatic pancreas cancer, have received a minimum of 16
   weeks of continuous platinum treatment and have no evidence of progression based on
   investigator's opinion.

   - Patients who have received platinum as potentially curative treatment for a prior
   cancer (eg ovarian cancer) or as adjuvant/neoadjuvant treatment for pancreas cancer
   are eligible provided at least 12 months have elapsed between the last dose of
   platinum-based treatment and initiation of the platinum-based chemotherapy for
   metastatic pancreas cancer.

Major Exclusion Criteria:

   - gBRCA1 and/or gBRCA2 mutations that are considered to be non detrimental (eg,
   "Variants of uncertain clinical significance" or "Variant of unknown significance" or
   "Variant, favour polymorphism" or "benign polymorphism" etc.)

   - Progression of tumour between start of first line platinum based chemotherapy for
   metastatic pancreas cancer and randomisation.

   - Cytotoxic chemotherapy or non-hormonal targeted therapy within 28 days of Cycle

   1 Day 1 is not permitted.

   - Exposure to an investigational product within 30 days or 5 half lives (whichever is
   longer) prior to randomisation

   - Any previous treatment with a PARP inhibitor, including Olaparib
