Awards & highlights


This trial is testing a new cancer drug combo vs. the old standard to see if the new one helps people live longer without their cancer progressing.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients with advanced, platinum-resistant high-grade ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer. Participants must have had 1-3 prior cancer treatments including platinum therapy and bevacizumab. They should not have unresolved severe side effects from past treatments, no major surgery within the last month, and no untreated brain metastases.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests relacorilant combined with nab-paclitaxel against nab-paclitaxel alone to see which is better at slowing down cancer progression. Patients will either receive relacorilant daily with intermittent doses of nab-paclitaxel or just regular doses of nab-paclitaxel.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include nerve damage (neuropathy), allergic reactions to drugs used in the trial, blood disorders like low platelet count or anemia, liver issues indicated by abnormal enzyme levels in blood tests, and general symptoms such as fatigue.

Patients receive nab-paclitaxel 80 mg/m^2 on Days 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle in combination with intermittent relacorilant (150 mg relacorilant once daily on the day before, the day of, and the day after nab-paclitaxel), administered orally under fed conditions. Relacorilant will not be administered on Cycle 1 Day -1.

Mechanism Of Action
Side Effect Profile
Prior Approvals
Other Research
Relacorilant, a selective glucocorticoid receptor modulator, blocks cortisol's effects, potentially reducing cancer cell survival and proliferation. Nab-paclitaxel, a microtubule stabilizer, inhibits cell division by preventing microtubule disassembly. These mechanisms are crucial for Fallopian Tube Cancer patients as they offer targeted approaches to hinder cancer growth, potentially improving treatment efficacy and reducing side effects.
