Ovarian Cancer

News and reporting on ovarian cancer.

A new microbiome analysis uncovered cancer type-specific bacterial community features, along with intracellular bacteria in tumor and associated immune cells.

The agency reviewed data showing that HRD-positive patients on the olaparib/bevacizumab combination had median progression-free survival of 37.2 months.

The drugmaker will promote Zejula without a biomarker as a first-line maintenance option, and Myriad will highlight that patients with HRD are most likely to benefit.

A new paper outlines an upcoming effort to trace tumor development and trajectory in time and space using single-cell genetics and other genomic methods.

The diagnostic will be covered when patients are tested according to the Japanese Organization of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer's criteria.

The method can be used with isothermal amplification and paper-based readouts to detect infectious disease drug resistance in low-resource areas.

The company filed the application based on the PAOLA-1 data, which showed HRD-positive ovarian cancer patients saw pronounced benefit from the combo.

The final national coverage decision stipulates that NGS germline tests for assessing hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk must have FDA's blessing.

Myriad filed an sPMA for myChoice CDx despite GSK's confidence that Zejula will be approved in newly diagnosed ovarian cancer regardless of biomarker status.
