CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of ovarian cancer.


    • Consider available and emerging clinical research findings with PARP inhibitors as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for advanced OC, and counsel appropriate patients regarding personalized treatment recommendations.
    • Assess available clinical trial data with and approved indications for FDA-endorsed PARP inhibitors for recurrent, platinum-sensitive and multiregimen-refractory OC in order to optimally incorporate these agents into patient care.
    • Appreciate the biologic rationale for and published clinical research data with the use of PARP inhibitors in combination with other systemic therapies, and consider the clinical and research implications of these findings for current and future OC management.
    • Recognize the rationale for targeting folate receptor alpha and sodium-dependent phosphate transport protein 2b in OC, and consider available research findings with and the potential role of novel therapeutic approaches exploiting these biomarkers.
    • Describe the scientific rationale for the use of tumor treating fields (TTFs) as a therapeutic approach for OC, and appraise the available efficacy and safety data with TTFs in combination with chemotherapy for recurrent, advanced disease.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for OC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
