Therapy Setting


Study Design

Open-Label, Non-randomized


CBR, ORR, DCR, DoR, OS, evaluated per RECIST


Exploratory: BRCA1/2, HRD (myChoice HRD test, Myriad Genetics)


Primary endpoint analysis: Pt-S, HRD+ (incl. BRCA MUT) with 3 or 4 prior therapies, no prior PARPi (n=47):
ORR: 28% (p=0.00053); DCR: 68%; DoR: 9.2 months; PFS: 5.5 months

Exploratory analysis Pt status and BRCA status (Modified Per Protocol Population: ≥3 prior therapies, no prior PARPi):
Pt-S, BRCA MUT (n=18): ORR: 39%; CBR: 56%
Pt-S, HRD+ (incl. BRCA MUT) (n=53): ORR: 26%; CBR: 40%
Pt-S, HRD+ (excl. BRCA MUT) (n=35): ORR: 20% (FDA approval data); CBR: 31% (Fig. 4A)
Pt-S, HRD- or unk (n=52): ORR: 4%; CBR: 19%
Pt-R or Pt-Rf, BRCA MUT (n=37): ORR: 27%; CBR: 32%
Pt-R or Pt-Rf, HRD+ (incl. BRCA MUT) (n=120): ORR: 10%; CBR: 20%
Pt-R or Pt-Rf, HRD+ (excl. BRCA MUT): CBR: 14% (Fig. 4A)
Pt-R or Pt-Rf, HRD- or unk (n=169): ORR: 3%; CBR: 11%

Clinically Significant Adverse Events

Serious AE: overall (43%), small intestinal obstruction (7%), thrombocytopenia (7%), vomiting (6%), 1 death due to gastric hemorrhage
Grade 3-4 AE: anemia (24%), thrombocytopenia (21%)
