MODULE 1: First-Line Treatment Decision-Making for Patients with Advanced Ovarian Cancer (OC)

  • Incidence of germline and somatic BRCA mutations and homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) in patients with advanced OC; indications and optimal platforms for genetic testing
  • Key factors affecting treatment decision-making for patients with newly diagnosed advanced OC (eg, BRCA and/or HRD status, age and comorbidities, residual disease after surgery, type of and response to primary therapy)
  • Outcomes from Phase III studies (eg, SOLO-1, PRIMA, PRIME, PAOLA-1) supporting the use of olaparib, niraparib and olaparib/bevacizumab maintenance for patients with newly diagnosed OC
  • Findings from and clinical implications of the Phase II OVARIO study assessing maintenance with niraparib/bevacizumab after front-line platinum-based chemotherapy/bevacizumab for advanced OC
  • Emerging findings from the Phase III ATHENA-MONO study demonstrating improved progression-free survival with up-front rucaparib maintenance regardless of biomarker status

MODULE 2: Management of Relapsed OC; Future Directions with PARP Inhibitor Therapy for Newly Diagnosed and Recurrent Disease

  • Long-term follow-up from pivotal clinical trials evaluating niraparib, olaparib and rucaparib for platinum-sensitive and platinum-resistant recurrent OC; patient- and disease-related factors in the selection of a PARP inhibitor
  • Key findings from the Phase IIIb OReO study evaluating the clinical utility of rechallenge with a PARP inhibitor for patients who have experienced disease progression on or after PARP inhibitor therapy; implications for later-line treatment
  • Outcomes observed in the subgroup of patients with BRCA reversion mutations in the Phase III ARIEL4 trial; ramifications, if any, for routine practice
  • Biologic rationale for combining PARP inhibitors with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies with or without bevacizumab for OC; results from early-phase studies evaluating these combinations (eg, MEDIOLA, TOPACIO, OPAL, MOONSTONE)
  • Design, eligibility criteria and primary and secondary endpoints of ongoing Phase III trials evaluating PARP inhibitors in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors for advanced OC (eg, ATHENA-COMBO, FIRST, DUO-O)

MODULE 3: Other Novel Agents and Strategies Under Investigation for Advanced OC

  • Mechanism of action of mirvetuximab soravtansine; published efficacy outcomes from the Phase III SORAYA study of mirvetuximab soravtansine for patients with folate receptor alpha-high, platinum-resistant OC
  • Spectrum, frequency and severity of toxicities, including ocular events, reported with mirvetuximab soravtansine
  • Other ongoing studies of mirvetuximab soravtansine for platinum-resistant and platinum-sensitive OC (eg, MIRASOL, PICCOLO); potential clinical role
  • Biologic rationale for targeting sodium-dependent phosphate transport protein 2b in OC; structural components and mechanism of antitumor activity of upifitamab rilsodotin (UpRi)
  • Available efficacy and safety findings with and ongoing evaluation of UpRi for platinum-resistant and platinum-sensitive OC
  • Mechanism of action of tumor treating fields (TTFs) and biologic rationale for their investigation in OC
  • Early-phase efficacy and safety data with and ongoing Phase III investigation of TTFs in combination with chemotherapy for advanced OC
  • Other promising novel agents and strategies for patients with advanced OC

Target Audience
This activity is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of ovarian cancer (OC).

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Consider available and emerging clinical research findings with PARP inhibitors as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for advanced OC, and counsel appropriate patients regarding personalized treatment recommendations.
  • Assess available clinical trial data with and approved indications for FDA-endorsed PARP inhibitors for recurrent, platinum-sensitive and multiregimen-refractory OC in order to optimally incorporate these agents into patient care.
  • Appreciate the biologic rationale for and published clinical research data with the use of PARP inhibitors in combination with other systemic therapies, and consider the clinical and research implications of these findings for current and future OC management.
  • Recognize the rationale for targeting folate receptor alpha and sodium-dependent phosphate transport protein 2b in OC, and consider available research findings with and the potential role of novel therapeutic approaches exploiting these biomarkers.
  • Describe the scientific rationale for the use of tumor treating fields (TTFs) as a therapeutic approach for OC, and appraise the available efficacy and safety data with TTFs in combination with chemotherapy for recurrent, advanced disease.
  • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for OC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.

CME Credit Form
A CME credit form will be given to each participant at the conclusion of the activity.
