The poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, such as AstraZeneca’s Lynparza, GSK’s Zejula, and Clovis Oncology’s Rubraca, have revolutionized the therapeutic landscape of platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer, where platinum-based regimens used to be the standard of care. Although substantial improvements have been made with the FDA’s 2019 approval of Lynparza for first-line maintenance therapy in advanced ovarian cancer, opportunity exists to develop more effective therapies for platinum-sensitive disease, while optimal sequencing of these therapies remains an unmet need.
Unmet Need provides quantitative insight into U.S. and European physician perceptions of key treatment drivers and goals and the current level of unmet need for a specific disease. Commercial opportunities are analyzed, and the extent to which emerging therapies may capitalize on these opportunities is evaluated.
