Clovis Oncology (NASDAQ:CLVS) stock is rising higher on Monday following the release of results from a Phase 3 clinical trial.

That trial covers Rubraca as a monotherapy for the treatment of ovarian cancer. The results showed Rubraca was effective as a “first-line maintenance treatment” to improve progression-free survival (PFS) when compared to a placebo.

Clovis Oncology notes that Rubraca was used in various subgroups with disease risk. That includes surgical outcomes, response to first-line chemotherapy and several others. Investors will also note the study included 538 women with “high-grade ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.”

Trial lead investigator Rebecca Kristeleit, MD, PhD said the following about the results:

“These additional results from the ATHENA-MONO analysis of the Phase 3 ATHENA trial demonstrate that rucaparib should be considered a new first-line maintenance treatment option for women with advanced ovarian cancer.”

More Trial Data Is on the Way

Clovis Oncology mentions that this is only the first part of its Phase 3 clinical trial. Data from a second part of the trial, which will evaluate “Rubraca plus nivolumab versus Rubraca,” is expected in the first quarter of 2023.

CLVS stock is seeing decent trading as markets open this morning. As of this writing, some 3 million shares have changed hands. That’s already a good start compared to the company’s daily average trading volume of about 12.3 million shares.

CLVS stock is up more than 11% as of Monday morning.
