Abstract Disclosures


Background: The median PFS after chemotherapy in PSR SOC is less than 6 months in many patients. In SOLO2 (ENGOT Ov-21; NCT01874353), maintenance olaparib (O) given after response to chemotherapy resulted in a significant improvement in PFS vs placebo (P) in patients with gBRCAm PSR SOC (hazard ratio [HR] 0.30, 95% CI 0.22, 0.41; P<0.0001; median 19.1 vs 5.5 months; 63% data maturity; Pujade-Lauraine et al. SGO 2017). Our a priori hypothesis was that maintenance therapy with O would not negatively impact HRQOL compared with P and would be associated with additional patient-centered benefits to support the prolongation of PFS, the primary endpoint of SOLO2. Methods: HRQOL was evaluated by the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Ovarian Trial Outcome Index (FACT-O TOI) in all 295 patients. This measures functional and physical well-being and symptoms, including adverse events. Change from baseline in FACT-O TOI score during the first 12 months was the primary HRQOL analysis (mixed model repeated measures). Secondary planned analyses included duration of ‘good quality of life’ by time without symptoms of disease or toxicity (TWiST) and quality-adjusted PFS (QAPFS; a single measure of PFS and HRQOL outcomes). Results: There was no significant detrimental effect of O vs P on HRQOL analyzed by change from baseline in TOI score (–3.1 vs –2.9, respectively, difference (O minus P) –0.2; 95% CI –2.4, 2.1; P=0.88). There was a significant improvement for patients on maintenance O in TWiST (13.5 vs 7.2 months, difference 6.3; 95% CI 2.9, 8.6; P<0.001) and QAPFS (mean 14.0 vs 7.3 months for O and P, respectively, difference 6.7; 95% CI 5.0, 8.5; P<0.0001). Conclusions: Maintenance O did not detrimentally impact HRQOL relative to P. The significant improvement in PFS with O was associated with additional patient-centered benefits, including a longer duration without symptoms of disease or treatment toxicity and longer QAPFS.
