Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the tolerability of PARP inhibitor and platinum chemotherapy in patients with ovarian cancer overall and in biomarker-selected subsets.
  2. Conclude that HRD score is not a predictive biomarker of Veliparib benefit in 1L ovarian cancer
  3. Define the role of PARP inhibitors in monotherapy in treatment of platinum sensitive ovarian cancer.
  4. Summarize the effect of rucaparib vs placebo on postprogression endpoints in a post hoc exploratory analysis of the subgroup of patients with a non-BRCA homologous recombination repair (HRR) gene mutation in their tumor who participated in the phase 3 study ARIEL3 (NCT01968213).
