ARIEL4: A Study of Rucaparib Versus Chemotherapy BRCA Mutant Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer Patients

Official Title

ARIEL4 (Assessment of Rucaparib In Ovarian CancEr TriaL): A Phase 3 Multicentre, Randomized Study of Rucaparib Versus Chemotherapy in Patients With Relapsed, BRCA Mutant, High Grade Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

Summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine how patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancer will best respond to treatment with rucaparib versus chemotherapy.

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • Investigator assessed progression-free survival (invPFS) by RECIST Version 1.1 for rucaparib versus chemotherapy
Secondary Outcome:
  • Efficacy of rucaparib versus chemotherapy as measured by overall survival (OS)
  • Safety and tolerability of rucaparib versus chemotherapy assessed by AEs reported; clinical laboratory investigations; Vital signs; 12 lead ECGs; Physical examinations; and ECOG performance status
Rucaparib is an orally available, small molecule inhibitor of poly-adenosine diphosphate [ADP] ribose polymerase (PARP) being developed for treatment of ovarian cancer associated with homologous recombination (HR) DNA repair deficiency (HRD). The safety and efficacy of rucaparib has been evaluated in several Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies. An oral formulation is the focus of current development efforts. Rucaparib is currently being investigated as monotherapy in patients with cancer associated with breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1) or BRCA2 mutations. While PARP inhibitors have demonstrated consistent robust clinical activity in patients with relapsed ovarian cancer associated with HRD, prospective studies evaluating efficacy and safety of PARPi versus standard of care chemotherapy have been limited. The primary purpose of this Phase 3 study is to compare the efficacy and safety of rucaparib versus chemotherapy as treatment for relapsed ovarian cancer in patients with a deleterious BRCA1/2 mutation in their tumour.
