The premium-priced therapies used to treat ovarian cancer, such as Avastin (Roche/Genentech) and the PARP inhibitors Lynparza (AstraZeneca/Merck & Co), Rubraca (Clovis Oncology), and Zejula (GlaxoSmithKline/Tesaro), result in a significant financial burden for payers. These costs are likely to increase with the expected label expansions of current therapies to new patient populations and the anticipated approval of AstraZeneca’s Imfinzi for newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer. As the number of high-priced therapies increases, understanding the market access drivers that are important to payers and oncologists will be essential to maximizing these therapies’ uptake.
