Brief Summary:
COMICE is a randomised, double blind placebo controlled Phase II trial. The trial is recruiting 108 patients with advanced recurrent cervical cancer who have completed their 1st line chemotherapy for advanced/recurrent disease. Patients will be randomised to either placebo Cediranib and Olaparib or active Cediranib and Olaparib and will remain on treatment until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of consent. Patients will be assessed for disease progression every 8 weeks through CT/MRI imaging. The primary end point is Progression Free Survival.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

    Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy- Cervical Cancer questionnaire

  3. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: from randomisation until date of death from any cause, assessed up to 21 months ]
    Date of death

  4. Tumour Response [ Time Frame: from date of randomisation until the date of first documented disease progression, assessed up to 21 months ]
