Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial
Comparing Standard of Care Chemotherapy Treatment to the Combination of Copanlisib and Olaparib for Recurrent Platinum Resistant Ovarian Cancer That Has Progressed Through PARP Inhibitor Therapy
This phase II trial compares copanlisib and olaparib to standard of care chemotherapy in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that did not respond to previous platinum-based chemotherapy (platinum resistant) and that has come back (recurrent). Copanlisib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Olaparib is a PARP inhibitor. PARP is a protein that helps repair damaged deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Blocking PARP may prevent tumor cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. PARP inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy. Chemotherapy drugs work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving copanlisib and olaparib may extend the time that the cancer does not progress compared to standard of care chemotherapy in patients with recurrent platinum resistant ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
I. To assess the clinical efficacy of the combination of copanlisib/olaparib, as measured by investigator-assessed progression free survival (PFS), compared to standard chemotherapy in the setting of recurrent platinum resistant ovarian cancer that has progressed through prior PARP inhibitor therapy.
I. To assess the clinical efficacy of the combination of copanlisib/olaparib, as measured by objective response rate (ORR), per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1.
II. To assess the clinical efficacy of the combination of copanlisib/olaparib, as measured by overall survival (OS), compared to standard chemotherapy in the setting of recurrent platinum resistant ovarian cancer that has progressed through prior PARP inhibitor therapy.
III. To determine the nature, frequency and degree of toxicity as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version (v.)5.0 for each treatment arm.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
ARM I: Patients receive either paclitaxel intravenously (IV) OR pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride IV, OR topotecan hydrochloride IV while on study.
ARM II: Patients receive copanlisib hydrochloride IV and olaparib orally (PO) while on study.
Patients undergo computed tomography (CT) scan while on study and may undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) throughout the study.

Patients who are therapeutically treated with an agent such as warfarin or heparin will be allowed to participate provided that their medication dose and INR/PTT is stable. Oral anticoagulants are allowed provided there are no interactions
The effects of copanlisib and olaparib on the developing human fetus are unknown. For this reason and because maternal toxicity, developmental toxicity and teratogenic effects have been observed in nonclinical studies and PI3K inhibitors agents as well as other therapeutic agents used in this trial are known to be teratogenic, women of child-bearing potential must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation, and for 1 month after the last dose of copanlisib and/or olaparib. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately

Patients with evidence of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection must have an undetectable HBV viral load on suppressive therapy, if indicated
Patients with a history of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection must have been treated and cured. For patients with HCV infection who are currently on treatment, they are eligible if they have an undetectable HCV viral load
