Overall Survival with Maintenance Olaparib at a 7-Year Follow-Up in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Advanced Ovarian Cancer and a BRCA Mutation: The SOLO1/GOG 3004 Trial

- Results indicate a clinically meaningful improvement in OS with maintenance olaparib in patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer and a BRCA mutation and support the use of maintenance olaparib to achieve long-term remission in this setting; the potential for cure may also be enhanced.

Gene-Expression Profiling of Mucinous Ovarian Tumors and Comparison with Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal Tumors Identifies Markers Associated with Adverse Outcomes.

- An infiltrative growth pattern infers poor prognosis within 2 years from diagnosis and may help select stage I patients for adjuvant therapy.
- High expression of THBS2 and TAGLN in mucinous ovarian cancer confers an adverse prognosis
- Anti-HER2 therapy should be investigated in a subset of patients.

Molecular Subclasses of Clear Cell Ovarian Carcinoma and Their Impact on Disease Behaviour and Outcomes.

- Data showed two clear cell ovarian cancer subtypes:
:- One dominated by ARID1A-mutated tumors with enriched expression of canonical clear cell ovarian cancer genes and markers of platinum resistance;
:- The second was largely comprised of tumors with TP53 mutations and enriched for the expression of genes involved in extracellular matrix organization and mesenchymal differentiation.
- These two distinct molecular subclasses showed distinct clinical presentation and outcomes, with potential relevance to therapeutic responsiveness.
