|Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecologic malignancy. Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) which is the most common histologic type has 5-year survival for all stages at 45.6%. This rate increases are about 70% in the minority of patients who are diagnosed at an early stage, but declines to 35% in most patients diagnosed at advanced stage. The standard treatment is primary surgery followed by platinum-based chemotherapy. In recurrent platinum-resistant/platinum-refractory EOC, sequential single-agent salvage chemotherapy is the standard of therapy, however none achieves the desired prognostic and curative effect. Currently, the impact of targeted therapies and immunotherapies on progression-free survival and overall survival, is under investigation. A new treatment modality is needed to achieve satisfactory oncologic outcomes. Triple therapy; sensitization for immune checkpoint therapy following combined inhibition of DNMT1 and EZH2 induces ovarian cancer cells to express CXC-motif chemokine 9 (CXCL9) and CXCL10, which can stimulate T helper 1 cells. This chemokine upregulation induces the attraction of tumourinfiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), which leads to the killing of tumor cells when combined with immune checkpoint therapy such as CTLA4 immune check antibody. This regimen demonstrated significant therapeutic synergy and durable treatment responses. In conclusion, the epigenetic drugs target the epigenome, and this lessens the need for precision approaches to individualized cancer therapy.|
