Status: In Review


This is an open-label, single-arm Phase 2 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination of niraparib and TSR-042 in patients with advanced, relapsed, high-grade ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer without known BRCA mutation who have platinum-resistant disease and who have also been previously treated with bevacizumab.

  • Patients must have completed at least 1 but no more than 3 prior lines of therapy for advanced or metastatic ovarian cancer.
  • Patients must have been previously treated with platinum-based regimen, taxane agent(s), and bevacizumab.
  • Patient has measurable disease according to RECIST v.1.1.
  • Patient has an ECOG performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Patient has adequate organ function.
  • Females with childbearing potential have a serum pregnancy test that is negative 72 prior first dose and are not breastfeeding. Patient must also agree to abstain from activities that could result in pregnancy from enrollment through 180 days after the last dose of study treatment.
  • Patient is willing to undergo a pre-treatment tumor biopsy if an appropriate archival tumor tissue sample is not available.
  • Patient must agree to complete HRQoL questionnaires throughout the study.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Patient who experienced disease progression within 3 months of first-line platinum therapy.
  • Patients with a known BRCA 1 or 2 mutation.
  • Patient has received prior therapy with an anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-2 agent.
  • Patient has a known hypersensitivity to TSR-042, Niraparib, their components, or their excipients.
  • Patient has a known history of myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myeloid leukemia.
  • Patient has not recovered from prior chemotherapy induced AE's.

  • Patient is participating in a treatment study or has participated in a study of an investigational agent within 4 weeks of the first dose of treatment.
  • Patient has received prior systemic anticancer therapy including cytotoxic chemotherapy, hormonal therapy given with the intention to treat ovarian cancer, or biological therapy within 3 weeks of the first dose of study treatment.
  • Patient has received live vaccine within 30 days of planned start of study therapy
  • Patient has symptomatic uncontrolled brain or leptomeningeal metastases. (If investigator feels patient symptoms are not symptomatic patients can undergo a scan to confirm for eligibility).
  • Patient had major surgery with 4 weeks of starting the study.
  • Patient has a known additional malignancy that progressed or required active treatment within the last 2 years.
  • Patient is considered a poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder, nonmalignant systemic disease or active controlled infection.
  • Patient has a history or current evidence of any condition, therapy, or laboratory abnormality that might confound the results of the study.
