News about CLVS Stock:

Clovis Oncology just announced results from the Phase 3 ATHENA (GOG-3020/ENGOT-ov45) trial (ATHENA-MONO) random trial. ATHENA is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 trial of Rubraca  for  ovarian cancer maintenance treatment.

The data demonstrated that Rubraca showed improved “progression-free survival (PFS) versus placebo across disease risk subgroups including surgical outcome, response to first-line chemotherapy, and additional analyses in other subgroups”.

Rebecca S. Kristeleit, MD, PhD, of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London stated of the results: “These additional results from the ATHENA-MONO analysis of the Phase 3 ATHENA trial demonstrate that rucaparib should be considered a new first-line maintenance treatment option for women with advanced ovarian cancer,”

Dr. Kristeleit said. “In this analysis, rucaparib prolonged progression-free survival for patients with or without high risk factors for progression, irrespective of molecular characteristics, adding to our understanding of the efficacy of rucaparib in the broadest population of patients assessed in a clinical trial for first-line PARP inhibitor monotherapy.”
