- Previously irradiated lesions are not allowed as measurable disease, unless there is
documented evidence of progression in the lesions.
- To be eligible with non-measurable disease, patients must have evaluable disease with
CA 125 at least twice the upper limit of reference range (of CA-125 â‰¥ 70 U/mL), along

insufficiency (if present), and lack of malabsorption.

- Negative pregnancy test for patients of childbearing potential. Patients of
childbearing potential must use appropriate precautions to avoid pregnancy, defined as
of non-childbearing potential (ie, postmenopausal or permanently sterilized) or using
highly effective contraception with low user-dependency, for at least 3 months after
the last dose of relacorilant, or per the duration indicated in the product label for
nab-paclitaxel, whichever is latest. A woman is postmenopausal if it is more than 12
months since her last menstruation, without an alternative medical cause. Accepted
methods of permanent sterilization methods are hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy
and/or bilateral oophorectomy. Accepted methods of highly effective contraception with
low user-dependency are:
- An IUD, provided that the subject has tolerated its use for at least 3 months
before the first dose of study medication and undertakes not to have it removed
for 1 month after the last dose.
- Abstinence from heterosexual intercourse, when it is in line with the subject's
preferred and usual lifestyle. Periodic abstinence and withdrawal are NOT
- Vasectomized partner provided that the partner is the sole sexual partner of the
trial participant and that the vasectomized partner has received medical
assessment of the surgical success.
- Oral hormonal contraceptives are NOT permitted.
- Clinically relevant toxicity from prior systemic anticancer therapies or radiotherapy
that in the opinion of the Investigator has not resolved to Grade 1 or less prior to
- Any major surgery within 4 weeks prior to randomization. If subject received major
surgery including (curative or palliative surgery), they must have recovered
adequately from the toxicity and/or complications from the intervention prior to
- Treatment with the following prior to randomization:
- Concurrent treatment with other anticancer therapy including other chemotherapy,
immunotherapy, radiotherapy, chemoembolization, targeted therapy, an
investigational agent or the non-approved use of a drug or device within 28 days
before the first dose of study drug.
- Hormonal anticancer therapies within 7 days of the first dose of study drug.
- Systemic, inhaled, or prescription strength topical corticosteroids within 21
days of the first dose of study drug. Short courses (â‰¤ 5 days) for
non-cancer-related reasons are allowed if clinically required (such as
prophylaxis for CT).
- Received radiation to more than 25% of marrow-bearing areas.
- Toxicities of prior therapies (except alopecia) that have not resolved to National
Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) v5.0 â‰¤
- Requirement for treatment with chronic or frequently used oral corticosteroids for
medical conditions or illnesses (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, immunosuppression after
- History of severe hypersensitivity or severe reaction to either study drug.
- Peripheral neuropathy from any cause > Grade 1.
- Pregnant or lactating patients or patients expecting to conceive children within the
projected duration of the trial, starting with the screening visit through at least 3
months after the last dose of relacorilant, or per the duration indicated in the
product label for nab-paclitaxel, whichever is latest.
- Human immunodeficiency virus or current chronic/active infection with hepatitis C
virus or hepatitis B virus, including:
- Patients with chronic or active hepatitis B as diagnosed by serologic tests are
excluded from the study. In equivocal cases, hepatitis B or C polymerase chain
reaction may be performed and must be negative for enrollment.
- Patient has a clinically significant uncontrolled condition(s) or which in the opinion
of the Investigator may confound the results of the trial or interfere with the
patient's participation, including but not limited to:
- Unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty, cardiac stenting, or myocardial infarction
6 months before study entry.
- Uncontrolled hypertension (sustained systolic blood pressure > 150 mmHg or

- Has known psychiatric or substance abuse disorders that would interfere with
cooperation with the requirements of the trial.

that is a substrate of CYP3A with a narrow therapeutic window.
- Concurrent treatment with mifepristone or other glucocorticoid receptor (GR)
- Drugs with a narrow therapeutic ratio that are highly dependent on CYP3A for clearance
should be avoided. Caution should be exercised when co-administering known inhibitors
of CYP3A with relacorilant. Medicines/food known to strongly inhibit CYP3A should be
