Assessment of the Efficacy and Safety of Olaparib Monotherapy Versus Physicians Choice Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients With Germline BRCA1 / 2 Mutations.

Status: Closed to Accrual


This open label, randomised, controlled, multi-centre phase III study will assess the efficacy and safety of single agent olaparib vs standard of care based on physician's choice of capecitabine, vinorelbine or eribulin in metastatic breast cancer patients with gBRCA 1 / 2 mutations.
