Brief Summary:

Epithelial ovarian cancer harbours 20% Breast Cancer gene (BRCA)1/2 mutations independently of family history. Poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors (PARPi) have shown clinical activity among patients with homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) and specifically among BRCA1/2 mutation carriers.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the use of olaparib as maintenance therapy "as monotherapy for the maintenance treatment of adult patients with platinum sensitive relapsed BRCA mutated (germline and/or somatic) high-grade serous epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who are in response (complete response or partial response) to platinum-based chemotherapy".

Trabectedin and Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) have shown relevant activity in relapsed epithelial ovarian cancer. In the relapse with Treatment-free interval of last platinum (TFIp) between 6 and 12 months this efficacy translated into an increase in Overall survival (OS) and Progression free survival (PFS).

There is an increase of hypersensitivity reactions (HSR) among platinum sensitive patients, that reaches 44% in third line and does not always allow for platinum use despite desensitization protocols. In relapse with TFIp between 6-12 months the use of Trabectedin+PLD is accepted in guidelines and consensus.

Following clinical BRCAness criteria a group of patients that harbours up to 50% of BRCA1/2 mutations can be selected. Olaparib has been licensed according to EMA for maintenance in BRCA mutated patients after response to platinum following Study 19 phase II trial and further confirmed with phase III SOLO-2 data. However there is no evidence of the benefit of adding olaparib after Trabectedin+PLD response among BRCA1/2 carriers.

The combination of Trabectedin+PLD, as well as both single drugs, have shown higher activity among BRCA1/2 carriers.

    Time from date of first olaparib dose (treatment initiation) to date of second subsequent treatment commencement or death due to any cause if this occurs before commencement of second subsequent treatment.

  3. Progression free survival 2 (PFS2) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Interval from the first olaparib dose (treatment initiation) to the earliest of the progression events subsequent to that used for the primary variable PFS, or death

  8. 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 with no blood transfusion in the past 28 days
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L
