Brief Summary:
Impact of the combination of Olaparib and Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin on improvement of progression-free survival at 6 months in patients with platinum resistant advanced ovarian cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Ovarian Cancer Drug: Olaparib Drug: Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The combination of Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors with PLD may provide a synergistic effect in patients with advanced ovarian cancer, especially those with Homologous recombination deficiency (HRD), because of the decreased ability to repair chemotherapy-induced DNA damage. Preclinical studies with PARP inhibitors have shown potentiation of the cytotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic agents and a recent phase I study has shown the tolerability of the combination and efficacy in recurrent ovarian cancer. In this study, encouraging efficacy results were seen in ovarian cancer patients and were not limited by Germline BRCA1/2 (gBRCA) Mutations status or sensitivity to platinum therapy.

PLD 40mg/m2 every 28 days intravenous
Other Name: PLD

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Proportion of pacients with no progression of disease at 6 months after start of treatment with Olaparib plus PLD

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Proportion of patients with tumor size reduction. Response duration is measured from the time of initial response until documented tumor progression. The Objective Response Rate (ORR) is defined as the sum of partial responses plus complete responses according to RECIST 1.1.

  2. Disease Control Rate [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Proportion of patients who have achieved complete response, partial response and stable disease of 8 or more months according to RECIST 1.1

  3. Response to treatment Rate according CA-125 levels [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Proportion of patients who have achieved a response according to CA-125: and it has occurred if there is at least a 50% reduction in CA-125 levels from a pretreatment sample.

  4. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Time from the date of the first dose of study treatment to the date of objective disease progression or death (in the absence of progression) regardless of whether the subject withdraws from study treatment or receives another anti-cancer therapy prior to progression.

  5. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Time from inclusion until death of any cause.

  6. Health related quality of life [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Change in patient's quality of life during the study, using the self-reported European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ) (EORTC QLQ-C30) and the EORTC ovarian cancer module (EORTC-OV-28). Both scores will be combined to report a final outcome.

  7. Activity of tumor based on the growth modulation index (GMI) [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    The GMI is the ratio of time to progression with the nth line (TTP(n)) of therapy to the TTP(n)(-1) with the n-1th line. GMI >1.33 is considered as a sign of activity in phase II trials.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    Frequency, nature and number of patients developing adverse events throughout follow up

  2. DNA damage [ Time Frame: 20 months ]
    BRCA pathway and defects in homologous recombination repair (HRR) Phosphorylation of γH2AX as a marker of DNA damage.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of informed consent prior to any study specific procedures. Procedures conducted as part of the subject's routine clinical management (e.g., blood count, imaging study) and those obtained prior to signing of informed consent may be utilized for screening or for baseline purposes provided these procedures are conducted as specified in the protocol.
  • Patients with histological or cytological confirmed high grade serous or endometrioid epithelial ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal carcinoma, fallopian tube cancer and resistant platinum relapse with no prior treatment with PLD for their resistant relapse. Previous treatment with PLD is allowed as long as it was part of one platinum based regimen and the treatment was finalized at least six months previously to inclusion in this trial.
  • Patients must have platinum-resistant disease, defined as progression within <6 months from completion of at least 4 cycles of platinum and up to 3 prior chemotherapy regimens. Patients should have documented treatment-free interval of ≥6 months following 1st chemotherapy regimen received. Patients with a deleterious mutation in BRCA are eligible in any case with a resistant relapse including primary resistant relapse.
  • Have measurable disease as defined by RECIST v1.1 Criteria. At least one lesion, not previously irradiated, that can be accurately measured at baseline as ≥ 10 mm in the longest diameter (except lymph nodes which must have short axis ≥ 15 mm) with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and which is suitable for accurate repeated measurements.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤2.
  • Female patients with > 18 years of age.
  • Patients must have normal organ and bone marrow function measured within 28 days prior to administration of study treatment as defined below: Haemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL; Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L; No features suggestive of Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Acute Myeloid Leukemia on peripheral blood smear; White blood cells (WBC) > 3x109/L; Platelet count ≥ 100 x 109/L; Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN); aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT)/Alaninotransferase (ALT/SGPT) ≤ 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal unless liver metastases are present in which case it must be ≤ 5x ULN.

Population pharmacokinetic data (in the range of creatinine clearance tested of 30-156 ml/min) demonstrate that PLD clearance is not influenced by renal function. No pharmacokinetic data are available in patients with creatinine clearance of less than 30 ml/min.
