(ESMO) Congress 2016: Highlights/summary of selected abstracts in gyn cancers

open access

Two strong themes emerged from the gynecological track at ESMO
2016. Firstly, the therapeutic landscape for PARP inhibitors is expanding
beyond the treatment of gBRCAmut HGSOC. HRD assays may usefully
identify patients likely to have the greatest response to PARP inhibitor
treatment, but may not be sufficiently sensitive to separate out nonresponders
to PARP inhibitors from within the HRD negative group.
The niraparib trial provides additional evidence that there is a clinical
benefit for PARP inhibitor maintenance therapy in most patients with
platinum sensitive recurrent disease. Secondly, there are number of
novel therapies, includingADCs and smallmoleculeswhich are showing
promising preliminary activity in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer,
where a minimal gain in outcome has been made in the past decade.
