Rebecca S. Kristeleit, MD, PhD, of the University College London and UCL Cancer Institute, discusses efficacy and safety results from the phase III ARIEL4 study, which showed that rucaparib improved progression-free survival vs standard-of-care chemotherapy in patients with BRCA-mutated, platinum-resistant, or platinum-sensitive relapsed ovarian cancer (ID #10191).

Ursula A. Matulonis, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses phase III results from the ENGOT-OV16/NOVA study on the long-term safety and efficacy of niraparib as maintenance therapy in patients with platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer with either a BRCA mutation or a tumor with high-grade serous histology. Women in the study have responded to their most recent chemotherapy containing a platinum agent (ID #: 11139).

Laura Chambers, DO, on Treating Epithelial Ovarian Cancer With Cisplatin and Paclitaxel During Surgery

Laura Chambers, DO, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses data showing that combining paclitaxel and cisplatin vs cisplatin alone with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy at interval debulking surgery improved progression-free survival. There was no difference in postoperative complications, length of stay, or time to chemotherapy, but admission to intensive care units did increase.

Sandro Pignata, MD, PhD, of the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, discusses results from the ORZORA trial, which showed the efficacy of olaparib in patients with platinum-sensitive relapsed ovarian cancer is similar, whether they have a germline or somatic BRCA mutation. This information could prove useful for clinical practice (ID #10226).

Morcos N. Nakhla, MS, a second-year student at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, discusses data showing that a higher surgical volume is associated with better outcomes for frail patients undergoing surgery for ovarian cancer. Over the 12-year study period, mortality decreased for all women with ovarian cancer, despite a concurrent increase in frail patients (ID #10209).
