Prof Jonathan Ledermann - University College London Hospitals, London, UK

Prof Ledermann speaks with ecancer at the ESMO 2017 Congress about the phase III ARIEL3 study of rucaparib vs placebo following response to platinum-based chemotherapy for recurrent ovarian carcinoma.

He states that rucaparib has anti-tumour activity in BRCA-mutant or BRCA wild-type/genomic loss of heterozygosity high associated ovarian carcinoma.

He goes on to discuss the results of the study highlighting that rucaparib significantly improved progression-free survival vs placebo in all primary analysis groups of patients with platinum-sensitive, recurrent ovarian carcinoma.

Improvement in progression-free survival was observed in non-nested subgroups of patients with BRCA wild-type ovarian carcinoma.
