1.1 Bevacizumab in combination with gemcitabine and carboplatin is not recommended within its marketing authorisation, that is, for treating people with the first recurrence of platinum-sensitive advanced ovarian cancer (including fallopian tube and primary peritoneal cancer) who have not received prior therapy with bevacizumab or other vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors or VEGF receptor-targeted agents.

1.2 People currently receiving bevacizumab in combination with gemcitabine and carboplatin for treating the first recurrence of platinum-sensitive advanced ovarian cancer should be able to continue treatment until they and their clinician consider it appropriate to stop.
