Clovis Oncology Announces Presentations at 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting

Accepted abstracts highlight additional data from phase 3 ARIEL3 clinical trial, as well as trials in progress presentations of Rubraca® (rucaparib) in multiple solid tumor settings at ASCO

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2018-- Clovis Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLVS) today announced that seven abstracts highlighting progress in the Rubraca preclinical research and clinical development program will be presented at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting taking place June 1-5 in Chicago.

The accepted abstracts include additional data from the phase 3 ARIEL3 clinical trial, as well as summaries of ongoing preclinical research and multiple clinical trials in which Rubraca is being studied as monotherapy and in combination in cancer types including ovarian, bladder, prostate and breast cancers.

“Rubraca has demonstrated its ability to reduce the risk of disease progression following platinum-based chemotherapy for women with advanced ovarian cancer, and our team is dedicated to fully exploring the potential of this molecule as a new treatment option for patients being treated for other cancer types where PARP inhibitors have shown encouraging results,” said Patrick J. Mahaffy, President and CEO of Clovis Oncology. “We look forward to sharing updates on the progress of our clinical development program at ASCO 2018.”

About Rubraca (rucaparib)

Rubraca is an oral, small molecule inhibitor of PARP1, PARP2 and PARP3 being developed in ovarian cancer as well as several additional solid tumor indications. Studies open for enrollment or under consideration include ovarian, prostate, breast, gastroesophageal, pancreatic, lung and bladder cancers. Clovis holds worldwide rights for Rubraca.

In the United States, Rubraca is approved for the maintenance treatment of adult patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who are in a complete or partial response to platinum-based chemotherapy. Rubraca is also approved in the United States for the treatment of adult patients with deleterious BRCA mutation (germline and/or somatic) associated epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who have been treated with two or more chemotherapies, and selected for therapy based on an FDA-approved companion diagnostic for Rubraca.

Rubraca is an unlicensed medical product outside of the U.S.
