This is a randomized, open, comparative, multi-centre study which will recruit up to 66
patients. The objective is mainly to explore the safety and feasibility in neo-adjuvant
first-line ovarian cancer (including patients with primary peritoneal or fallopian tube
adenocarcinoma) of various combinations of durvalumab with chemotherapy with or without
The schedule is the following:
• In a first step a run-in phase of 6 patients will be conducted to test the safety and
feasibility of the combination of durvalumab with standard carboplatin-paclitaxel
Cycle 1 : chemotherapy alone (day1) Cycle 2 : chemotherapy + durvalumab (day1) Cycle 3 :
chemotherapy + durvalumab (day1)
• In a second step, if first-step was found feasible, a run-in phase of 6 patients will be
conducted to test the safety and feasibility of the combination of durvalumab plus
tremelimumab with standard carboplatin-paclitaxel chemotherapy.
Cycle 1 : chemotherapy alone (day1) Cycle 2 : chemotherapy + durvalumab + tremelimumab (day1)
Cycle 3 : chemotherapy + durvalumab (day1)
- After the run-in phase, patients will be randomized in a ratio 1:1 between those
included in the durvalumab-chemotherapy expansion phase (arm A) and those included in
the durvalumab + tremelimumab-chemotherapy expansion phase (arm B).
- This study will also allow to explore the feasibility of a salvage therapy personalized
according to the results of interval surgery and type of previous neo-adjuvant therapy.
1. In those patients who achieved a complete surgical resection at interval debulking
surgery, adjuvant treatment will include 3 cycles of durvalumab + chemotherapy and
then a follow-up period.
2. In patients with residual tumor at interval debulking surgery, salvage therapy will
depend on the initial treatment arm allocated.
1. In arm A, the tremelimumab will be added to the durvalumab-chemotherapy
combination at day 1 of cycle 2 before a salvage surgery. Durvalumab (with one
cycle of tremelimumab post S3) will be pursued in maintenance treatment, up to
1 year or until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient
2. In arm B, the therapy will be according to the Investigator choice and managed
according to local practice.
