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).

Andreas Obermair, MD, on Treating Endometrial Adenocarcinoma With a Levonorgestrel Intrauterine Device

Andreas Obermair, MD, of the University of Queensland and Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer Research, discusses data on a hormonal IUD used to treat women with the precursor lesion endometrial hyperplasia with atypia (EHA) and those with stage I endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). At 6 months, the data showed a complete pathologic response in 82% of patients with EHA and in 43% of those with EAC (ID# 10244).

Vicky Makker, MD, on Endometrial Cancer: Lenvatinib Plus Pembrolizumab

Vicky Makker, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses phase III findings showing that lenvatinib plus pembrolizumab may improve overall and progression-free survival, as well as overall response rate, compared with treatment of physician’s choice for advanced endometrial cancer. These results were achieved regardless of mismatch repair status following platinum-based chemotherapy (ID #10191).

Alice P. Barr, MD, of the Carolinas Medical Center and Levine Cancer Institute, discusses results from a retrospective study, which showed that progression-free and overall survival appeared to be no different with open surgery and minimally invasive surgery for interval debulking after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in women with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. Perioperative outcomes also seemed to be superior with minimally invasive surgery (ID #10209).

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).
