The primary objective of this study is to evaluate progression-free survival (PFS) by blinded independent central review (BICR) in patients treated with intermittent regimen of relacorilant in combination with nab-paclitaxel compared with patients treated with nab-paclitaxel monotherapy.

Official Title

A Phase 3 Study of Relacorilant in Combination With Nab-Paclitaxel Versus Nab-Paclitaxel Monotherapy in Advanced, Platinum-Resistant, High-Grade Epithelial Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian-Tube Cancer (ROSELLA)


As there are no currently approved therapies or effective standard of care for heavily pretreated patients with ovarian cancer who have exhausted single-agent chemotherapy and/or bevacizumab, the combination of intermittently administered relacorilant and nab-paclitaxel may demonstrate a substantial improvement without increased toxicity compared with nab-paclitaxel.

Patients will receive study treatment until confirmed progressive disease (PD) or unacceptable toxicity. All patients will be followed for the collection of study endpoints, inclusive of disease progression and survival.


Ovarian Neoplasm, Fallopian Tube Neoplasms, Peritoneal Neoplasms, Neoplasms, Ovarian Neoplasms, Paclitaxel, Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel, Nab-paclitaxel 80 mg/m^2, Relacorilant 150 mg once daily (QD), Nab-paclitaxel 100 mg/m^2
