WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TESARO, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSRO), an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company, today announced that data from nine abstracts will be presented at the 2017 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) annual meeting, September 8 to September 12, 2017, in Madrid.

"We are excited that a wealth of data from the landmark ENGOT-OV16/NOVA trial will be presented at this year's ESMO Annual Meeting," said Mary Lynne Hedley, Ph.D., President and COO of TESARO. "Patient-reported quality of life data for patients treated with niraparib versus placebo will be featured in an oral presentation and the results of two post-hoc analyses, the observed exposure-response relationship of niraparib in gBRCA mut and non-gBRCA mut patients, and the safety and efficacy of niraparib in elderly patients, will be subjects for poster discussions. In addition, data from the Phase 1/2 trial of niraparib plus pembrolizumab in patients with triple-negative breast cancer or recurrent platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (TOPACIO) will be highlighted in a poster discussion. Finally, a poster will be presented detailing results from the Phase 1 study of TSR-042, our anti-PD-1 antibody."

Please plan to visit TESARO at Booth #53 for information about VARUBY® and our pipeline.

About ZEJULA® (Niraparib)
Niraparib is marketed in the United States under trade name ZEJULA® . ZEJULA (niraparib) is a poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor indicated for the maintenance treatment of adult patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who are in a complete or partial response to platinum-based chemotherapy.  In preclinical studies, ZEJULA concentrates in the tumor relative to plasma, delivering greater than 90% durable inhibition of PARP 1/2 and a persistent antitumor effect. Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Acute Myeloid Leukemia (MDS/AML), including some fatal cases, was reported in patients treated with ZEJULA. Discontinue ZEJULA if MDS/AML is confirmed.  Hematologic adverse reactions (thrombocytopenia, anemia and neutropenia), as well as cardiovascular effects (hypertension and hypertensive crisis) have been reported in patients treated with ZEJULA. Monitor complete blood counts to detect hematologic adverse reactions, as well as to detect cardiovascular disorders, during treatment.  ZEJULA can cause fetal harm and females of reproductive potential should use effective contraception. Please see full prescribing information, including additional important safety information, available at www.zejula.com .
