Rubraca is a cancer medicine for treating high-grade cancers of the ovary, fallopian tubes (the tubes connecting ovaries to the uterus) and the peritoneum (the membrane lining the abdomen).
It can be used as maintenance treatment in patients whose recurring cancer has cleared (partially or completely) after treatment with platinum-based cancer medicines.
It can also be used if the patient’s cancer has returned or is worsening after two treatments with platinum-based medicines and they can no longer have these medicines. For such patients, tests for a genetic mutation (BRCA mutation) should be carried out first to see if Rubraca is likely to work for them.
Rubraca contains the active substance rucaparib.
