Study Summary

This trial is testing a new cancer treatment combination to see if it is more effective and has fewer side effects than current chemotherapy options for women with ovarian cancer who have not responded to other treatments.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients with high-grade serous ovarian cancer resistant to platinum therapy, without a BRCA mutation. They must have had 1-3 prior treatments and not be candidates for further platinum-based therapy. Participants need measurable disease or assessable CA-125 levels, good organ function, and an ECOG status of 0 or 1.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests the effectiveness and safety of combining alpelisib with olaparib versus standard single-agent chemotherapy in treating high-grade serous ovarian cancer that's unresponsive to platinum treatment.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include nausea, fatigue, blood count changes, increased sugar levels (due to alpelisib), anemia, digestive issues from olaparib; plus common chemo-related side effects like hair loss and nerve damage.
