NICE Recommends AZ/Merck’s Lynparza® (olaparib) Combined with Bevacizumab for High-Grade Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Peritoneal Cancers

Dec 8, 2023

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) issued final draft guidance recommending AstraZeneca/Merck’s Lynparza® (olaparib) with bevacizumab be routinely used in the NHS in England and Wales for maintenance treatment of high-grade epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer in adults whose cancer has completely or partially responded after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy with bevacizumab, is advanced (stages 3 and 4) and is HRD positive (BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation or genomic instability).

On 24 August 2023, AstraZeneca announced the Japanese MHLW expanded the approval for Lynparza® with abiraterone to treat BRCAm mCRPC.
