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).

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.

Supriya Chopra, MD, of Tata Memorial Centre, discusses a final analysis of the phase III PARCER trial, which showed that image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy is superior to conventional radiotherapy in reducing bowel toxicity in women with cervical cancer. Acute diarrhea was also reduced, with no difference in disease-related outcomes (ID# 10224).

William H. Bradley, MD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, discusses results from the SOLO-1 trial on maintenance olaparib after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer and a BRCA mutation. Almost half of the patients treated with olaparib in the study were disease-free at 5 years, vs 20% of those treated with placebo (ID# 10224).

Lauren Thomaier, MD, on Predicting Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in Gynecologic Cancer Survivors

Lauren Thomaier, MD, of the University of Minnesota, discusses the genetic variants found to be associated with an increase in chemotherapy-induced neuropathy symptoms in a cohort of gynecologic cancer survivors. Combining these variants with clinical characteristics may provide an important treatment tool (ID# 10253).

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).
