Expected patient volume per year

Additional comments
In 2018 waren er 1.155 diagnoses epitheliaal ovariumcarcinoom, 126 diagnoses extraovarieel ovariumcarcinoom en 61 diagnoses tubacarcinoom. In totaal zijn dit 1.342 patiënten. Hiervan heeft 47% stadium III (631) en 26% stadium IV (349), wat samen 980 patiënten betreft. Van deze groep hebben 735 patiënten (75%) een hooggradige vorm van ovariumcarcinoom. Van deze groep hebben 625 patiënten (85%) een complete of gedeeltelijke respons. Hiervan is naar verwachting 50% HDR positief (313). Aangezien bevacizumab in de eerstelijnsbehandeling ovariumcarcinoom in Nederland geen standaardpraktijk is, zal de combinatie beva-olaparib in principe geen toepassing gaan vinden in Nederland.
