Brief Summary:
Uterine serous carcinoma (USC) accounts for up to 40% of endometrial cancer-related deaths. Patients with USC share many genomic and clinical characteristics with patients who has serous ovarian cancer. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of maintenance Niraparib regimen in patients with advanced or platinum sensitive recurrent uterine serous carcinoma. Additionally, the investigators aim to further describe the safety of this regimen. The investigators hypothesize that Niraparib maintenance will be a well-tolerated treatment and show significant response in patients with uterine serous carcinoma.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Niraparib

Oral niraparib

-Cohort - Uterine serous carcinoma

Drug: Niraparib
Study treatment will be administered orally Q day continuously. Up to three capsules of 100mg strength will be taken at each dose administration. Initiation dose will be defined per current FDA guidelines for Niraparib treatment in ovarian cancer. Dose interruption (no longer than 28 days) will be allowed. Dose reduction will be allowed based on treatment side effects. Dose reductions to 2 capsules daily (200mg) and subsequently to 1 capsule daily (100mg) will be allowed. No further dose reductions will be allowed. The timing of efficacy or safety evaluations should not be affected by dose interruptions or reductions.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    To determine the Progression Free Survival (PFS) at 1 year in the proposed Niraparib regimen in the population of patients with stage III, all stage IV, or recurrent uterine serous carcinoma (USC).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS)

  2. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    To further describe safety and assess toxicities encountered with the use of the proposed treatment regimen in patients with stage III, all stage IV, or recurrent uterine serous carcinoma (USC).

  3. Mutational burden [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    To identify the prevalence of somatic mutations, HRD mutations, and overall mutational burden in patients with USC and classify tumor into loss of heterozygosity (LOH) high and low phenotype.

  4. Quality of Life (QOL) measures using Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT- endometrial cancer) and EQ-5D-5L Euroqol [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    To evaluate quality of life (QOL) for the subjects undergoing this treatment, using validated tools. QOL will be assessed every 3 months during treatment course. [Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy - Endometrial Cancer questionnaire (score range from 0 to 120 - Higher scores represent better quality of life. EQ-5D-5L Euroqol is scored 0-20, with negative values corresponding to death, full health, and health states worse than death

  5. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Overall Survival

  6. ORR [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Overall response rate (ORR) at 2, and 3 years interval from start of treatment protocol

Individual Participant Data (IPD) Sharing Statement:
Plan to Share IPD: No
Plan Description:

Individual Participant Data will be available to other researchers via REDCAP, with de-identified source documents uploaded by the site. Remote review of the CRFs will be done monthly, cross-checking with source documents. Clarification of administrative matters will be performed by study coordinator and research manager. Remote monitoring of specific data will include eligibility, adverse events, tumor response, and protocol compliance.

Data will be maintained in a password- protected secure database, secured on an ePHI. The database will contain a study identifier that is linked to the subject's medical record number. To maintain confidentiality of identifiable information, paper based records will be kept in a secured location only available to research personnel, computer based files will be made available to research personnel through the use of access privileges and passwords, and whenever feasible identifiers will be removed from study information.
