CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Assess potential biomarkers of response to PARP inhibition to optimize genetic testing for patients with ovarian cancer (OC).
    • Consider the FDA approval of olaparib as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with advanced OC harboring a germline or somatic BRCA mutation, and counsel appropriate individuals regarding personalized treatment recommendations.
    • Recognize the FDA approval of niraparib as maintenance therapy in the first-line setting for advanced OC regardless of biomarker status, and identify patients for whom treatment with this agent may be appropriate.
    • Evaluate available clinical trial data with olaparib/bevacizumab as first-line maintenance therapy for patients with homologous recombination-deficient advanced OC responding after first-line platinum-taxane chemotherapy with bevacizumab, and determine the role of this novel strategy in current clinical practice.
    • Compare and contrast the toxicities associated with PARP inhibitors commonly used in the care of patients with OC, and recognize the implications for treatment selection.
    • Develop an understanding of the rationale for, available data with and ongoing research evaluating PARP inhibitors in combination with immunotherapy or other targeted therapies, and consider the implications of these findings for OC management.
