This is an expanded access program (EAP) for eligible patients with Recurrent Ovarian Cancer. This program is designed to provide access to niraparib prior to approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To be eligible, patients with Recurrent Ovarian Cancer following a partial (PR) or complete response (CR) to their most recent platinum-based chemotherapy and must have experienced a PR or CR after the penultimate (next to last) platinum-based chemotherapy for at least 6 months without disease progression after this chemotherapy.

Full description

If a patient qualifies for participation in an ongoing niraparib clinical trial or is already participating in a niraparib clinical trial, she will not be able to participate in the EAP. Ongoing clinical trials for niraparib include: A Phase 3 trial in patients who have received first-line treatment for ovarian cancer (the PRIMA trial, NCT # 02655016) A Phase 2 trial in patients who have received multiple lines of treatment for ovarian cancer (the QUADRA trial, NCT # 02354586) A Phase 1/2 trial in patients with advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer or recurrent ovarian cancer.
