Clinical trials are, due to the inclusion and exclusion criteria, accomplished with defined patient groups, which are not representative for the whole patient population.

Especially elderly patients and patients with co-morbidities are underrepresented in clinical trials.

This non-interventional study will examine the efficiency and toxicity of the Yondelis® + PLD combination therapy in a general patient population to evaluate if the data collected in the clinical trials can be assigned to a general patient population.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • safety and tolerability data of the study therapy [ Time Frame: during Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Number of patients with adverse events

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • "Real life data" - clinical and / or serological (CA 125) response and Stable disease rates [ Time Frame: till one year after last date of Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients with CR, PR, SD as best response

  • Treatment duration [ Time Frame: during Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time between first and last cycle of each patient

  • Observation of the number of the therapy cycles applied [ Time Frame: during Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to next treatment [ Time Frame: 1 Year after last Yondelis-PLD-Therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: till one year after last date of Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference between date of first documentation of "PD" and the date of first Yondelis® + PLD application

  • Duration of response [ Time Frame: till one year after last date of Yondelis-PLD-therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time in months from first assessment of CR or PR until the first date of PD or death.

Yondelis-Pegylated liposomal Doxorubicin
30 mg/m² PLD i.v. followed by 1.1 mg/m² Yondelis® i.v. 3 h, q3weeks

Detailed Description:

Yondelis® (trabectedin) was approved (in combination with PLD) in the European community in December 2009 for the treatment of platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer relapse. Based on the outcomes of study OVA-301, this non-interventional study will investigate the role of a platinum-free treatment regimen in patients with progressive ovarian cancer relapsing > 6 months after completing previous platinum-based chemotherapy. In particular, this study aims at collecting the "real-life" data with regard to the response and the influence of the mentioned therapy on the "tumor related events", to objectify the value of palliative care.
