Ovarian Cancer – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis : Current Treatment: Physician Insights (US)

The treatment of ovarian cancer has historically been dominated by chemotherapy, but angiogenesis and PARP inhibitors are optimizing treatment options. The regulatory approvals of AstraZeneca / Merck & Co.’s Lynparza, GlaxoSmithKline’s Zejula, and Clovis Oncology’s Rubraca are altering physicians’ prescribing habits and creating new dynamics in treatment sequencing. Notably, the label expansions of existing therapies to the first-line maintenance setting (e.g., Lynparza plus bevacizumab maintenance for HRD-positive patients, Zejula maintenance irrespective of BRCA or HRD status) are having an impact on prescribing decisions.


  • What are the key prescribing influences on physicians’ choice of first-line maintenance treatment (e.g., Lynparza plus bevacizumab versus Zejula) for advanced-stage ovarian cancer?
  • What is the patient share of key therapies used to treat advanced-stage (first- to fourth-line therapy) ovarian cancer
  • What are the key drivers of and obstacles to the use of bevacizumab and PARP inhibitors for advanced-stage ovarian cancer?
  • How do drug-treatment rates vary between key ovarian cancer patient populations, according to stage of disease and line of therapy?
