QA-PFS and Q-TWiST analyses were calculated using EQ-5D-3L data as described in the poster.
Mean Q-TWiST analysis using all grade >=3 treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) was significantly longer in the rucaparib arm than placebo for the ITT population (13.32 vs 6.44 months) and for patients with a BRCA mutation (16.42 vs 6.70 months).
In the analyses using TEAEs of interest (grade >=2 TEAEs of nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and asthenia), Q-TWiST was also longer in the rucaparib arm than placebo for the ITT population (13.16 vs 6.40 months) and for patients with BRCA mutation (16.24 vs 6.68 months).
