Dr. Mirza Mansoor (Dep. of Oncology, Copenhagen University Hospital) introduced a Ph 2 randomized Umbrella Trial in Recurrent Ovarian Cancer combining PD-L1 antagonist Durvalumab with an agent targeting immunosuppression in the tumor bed (AZD 5069, AZD 9150) as a complementary antitumor strategy. Later, individual proposals were discussed and remarked.
