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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Females 18 years old and older
  • Patients with histologically confirmed, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage III or IV epithelial ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube carcinoma (serous, endometrioid or mucinous), who had complete remission after first line platinum (Pt)-based chemotherapy and are selected to receive second line Standard of Care chemotherapy
  • Radiologically confirmed relapse after >6 months of remission (Platinum-sensitive patients), found up to 4 weeks prior study entry.
  • The patient must have at least one measureable target lesion as defined by the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 criteria to be eligible for enrolment in the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Non-epithelial ovarian cancer
  • Borderline tumors (tumors of low malignant potential)
  • Prior or current systemic anti-cancer therapy for ovarian cancer [for example chemotherapy, monoclonal antibody therapy , tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy or hormonal therapy] except first line Platinum-based chemotherapy (with or without bevacizumab)
  • Previous radiotherapy to the abdomen and pelvis
  • Malignancy other than epithelial ovarian cancer, except those that have been in clinical remission (CR) for a minimum of 3 years, and except carcinoma in-situ of the cervix or non-melanoma skin carcinomas
