Topics to Be Discussed

  • Biology of ovarian cancer (OC); incidence and relevance of various germline and somatic genomic abnormalities
  • Indications for and practical implementation of genetic testing for patients with newly diagnosed advanced OC
  • Current role of PARP inhibitor maintenance therapy in the first-line setting for patients with advanced OC with and without BRCA mutations
  • Identification and management of side effects and other practical considerations with the use of PARP inhibitors in advanced OC

Target Audience
This activity is intended for gynecologic oncologists, gynecologists, medical oncologists, medical oncology fellows, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

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

  • Assess potential biomarkers of response to PARP inhibition and appraise guideline recommendations and consensus statements regarding the indications for and practical implementation of genetic testing in ovarian cancer (OC), and use the results of these assessments in long-term treatment planning.
  • Recognize homologous recombination deficiency as a unique biologic characteristic, understand how it is measured with commercially available assays and consider the clinical implications for patients with OC.
  • Evaluate available data with olaparib and with niraparib as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with advanced OC harboring a deleterious or suspected deleterious germline or somatic BRCA mutation, and counsel appropriate individuals regarding personalized treatment recommendations.
  • Consider the current role of niraparib as maintenance therapy in the first-line setting for patients with advanced OC without BRCA mutations, and identify individuals for whom treatment with this strategy may be appropriate.
  • Appreciate available clinical trial data with olaparib/bevacizumab as first-line maintenance therapy for patients with newly diagnosed OC responding after first-line platinum/taxane chemotherapy with bevacizumab to determine the role of this novel approach in current clinical practice.
  • Compare and contrast the toxicities associated with PARP inhibitors commonly used in the care of patients with OC, and understand the supportive management strategies available to minimize or ameliorate these side effects.
