  • Debulking surgery and intraperitoneal therapy are allowed.
  • Must have either a CA-125 in the normal range or a decrease in CA-125 by more than 90% during front-line therapy that is stable for at least 7 days.
  • Must not have had treatment with a known PARP inhibitor or participated in a study where any treatment arm included a known PARP inhibitor.
  • Must not have any known history of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
