Abstract 5033


In SOLO2 (NCT01874353), maintenance therapy with olaparib (Lynparza) significantly prolonged progression-free survival (PFS) vs placebo in pts with PSROC and a BRCA1/2 mutation (BRCAm; hazard ratio 0.30, 95% CI 0.22–0.41; P


The randomized, double-blind, Phase III SOLO2 study enrolled 295 pts previously treated with ≥2 PBC regimens who were in response after receiving their most recent cycle of PBC. Pts were randomized 2:1 to receive olaparib (300 mg bid; tablet) or placebo. Objective tumour responses were investigator assessed using modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors v1.1.

*One patient in the olaparib arm did not receive study treatment. HR, hazard ratio; NR, not reached

At study entry, 73/196 (37%) olaparib pts and 35/99 (35%) placebo pts had measurable disease (evidence of target lesions at baseline); within this group, the adjusted objective response rate (number of pts with CR and PR divided by the number of pts with measurable disease at baseline) was 41.1% with olaparib vs 17.1% with placebo (odds ratio 3.52, 95% CI 1.34–10.59; P=0.0097). The placebo value is higher than expected, possibly due to a carry-over effect from last chemotherapy. In the olaparib arm, 17/113 pts (15.0%) with evidence of disease at baseline achieved CR following maintenance therapy (placebo arm, 5/55 [9.1%]).


Treatment with olaparib not only maintained the response achieved with PBC, but also induced additional antitumour activity in pts with measurable target tumour lesions at baseline. Olaparib monotherapy led to a significant PFS benefit in pts with both CR or PR at study entry, further supporting the role of olaparib as maintenance treatment for pts with PSROC and a BRCAm.
