Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the efficacy of oral olaparib in patients with advanced cancer who have a confirmed genetic BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation by assessment of tumour response [ Time Frame: at baseline, then in every 8 weeks up to 6 months after starting study treatment, then every 12 weeks until progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • assessment of objective response rate (ORR), progression free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), duration of response (DOR) and disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: at baseline, then in every 8 weeks up to 6 months after starting study treatment, then every 12 weeks until progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • safety and tolerability by collection of adverse events, haematology, clinical chemistry data, vital signs [ Time Frame: at screening, 3x within 1st month and then every 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Exploratory outcome measure; to enable a potential retrospective comparison of previously determined genetic BRCA mutation status taken from blood sample collection [ Time Frame: At screening visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 318
Study Start Date: February 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Primary Completion Date: July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
olaparib 400mg BD
Drug: olaparib
400mg (8 x 50mg capsules), oral BID until progression of the disease


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Confirmed documented deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA mutation. (The presence of a loss-of-function germline mutation in the BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 gene must be confirmed prior to consent according to local practice).
  • Confirmed malignant solid tumours for which no standard treatment exists
  • At least one lesion (measurable and/or non measurable) at baseline that can be accurately assessed by CT/MRI and is suitable for repeated assessment at follow up visits

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any previous treatment with a PARP inhibitor, including olaparib
  • Patients unable to swallow orally administered medication and patients with gastrointestinal disorders likely to interfere with absorption of the study medication
  • Patients receiving any systematic chemotherapy, radiotherapy (except for palliative reasons) within 2 weeks from the last dose prior to study treatment (or a longer period depending on the defined characteristics of the agents used)
