Baseline UK real-world study in ovarian cancer pre-PARPi published

  • A study was published recently on the real-world outcomes in platinum sensitive relapsed ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer treated in routine clinical practice in the United Kingdom prior to poly-ADP ribose polymerase inhibitors as a result of a collaboration between AstraZeneca and SVMPharma
  • The study, aside from providing a baseline for future evaluations to compare themselves to, produced survival data which complements randomised control trials (RCTs); for example, it described a shorter median overall survival for patients in the real-world than those reported in landmark RCTs
  • “[This study] will be an important benchmark for the future.” – Dr Ros Glasspool, Consultant Medical Oncologist at Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre
