"As discussed last quarter, growth remains challenging in the second-line maintenance ovarian cancer setting, but we have efforts underway to address this and we are aggressively moving forward to grow this market and grow our share of this market. In addition, our development team continues to make significant progress in moving Rubraca beyond its initial ovarian cancer indications. In particular, we were very pleased with the data from the TRITON studies presented at ESMO and at the Prostate Cancer Foundation Scientific Retreat, which also served as the basis for Breakthrough Therapy designation, and we are committed to developing Rubraca in the prostate setting as rapidly as possible to support men with this difficult-to-treat disease," said CEO Patrick Mahaffy. Shares of Clovis are down 20.29% or $3.37 per share to $13.24 in after-hours trading.
