Dr Shannon Westin - MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas

Dr Westin talks with ecancer at the ESMO 2017 Congress in Madrid about the phase I expansion of olaparib and a novel AKT inhibitor (AZD5363) in recurrent ovarian, endometrial and triple negative breast cancer. 

She notes this as one of the arms in the OCTOPUS trial, and details the dosage and cohort composure of patients recruited so far.

Dr Westin describes the tolerance of this combination as promising, and notes other arms and combinations within the trial evaluating alternative combinations.
