The blood test identifies biomarkers that could make patients eligible for targeted therapies.
PARP inhibitor delays disease progression for patients with harmful BRCA and related mutations.
The PARP inhibitor delayed disease progression by 20 months compared with a placebo.
PARP inhibitor delays disease progression when used after successful chemotherapy.
First targeted therapy may prolong survival of men with advanced prostate cancer.
The three studies tested Zejula, Lynparza and veliparib in women with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer.
Lynparza maintenance therapy after chemotherapy nearly doubled progression-free survival.
Researchers are interested in combining PARP inhibitors with immunotherapies for pancreatic and other cancers with defects in DNA repair.
An ongoing study is assessing pediatric and young adult cancers that did not respond to initial treatments.
Lynparza (olaparib) may become standard follow-up therapy for women with newly diagnosed ovarian cancer that has a BRCA mutation.
PARP inhibitor slowed disease progression in clinical study.
The PARP inhibitor Lynparza slows disease progression in women with BRCA-related ovarian cancer.
The drug, a PARP inhibitor, blocks proteins that help repair damaged DNA, and so can cause tumor cells that carry a BRCA mutation to die.
