Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

Clinical Trial Title: A Randomised, Multi-centre, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase III Study of First-line Carboplatin and Paclitaxel in Combination with Durvalumab, Followed by Maintenance Durvalumab with or without Olaparib in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Advanced or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how the drugs durvalumab and olaparib, when combined with standard of care chemotherapy, could improve outcomes for women with endometrial cancer. This study will also help us better understand endometrial cancer and related health problems. Durvalumab and olaparib are still in the development stage for the treatment of endometrial cancer, and they are not approved for the treatment of endometrial cancer, except for use in research studies like this. Therefore, both these medicines are considered as investigational treatments for patients with endometrial cancer. “Investigational” means that it is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and that it must be tested to see if it is a safe and effective treatment for the disease or condition being studied.

Study participation may last about 2 years, but participants will receive treatment until the endometrial cancer no longer responds, so it may be longer or shorter than that. Participants will have a clinic visit every 3 weeks for the first 18 weeks (chemotherapy induction period), and then every 4 weeks while participants are receiving study treatment (maintenance period). Each visit may not take the same amount of time.
