The Role of PARP Inhibitors in Oncology and Combination Therapy

Originally presented at HOPA's 14th Annual Conference, March 2018.

This session will review the use of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors in oncology therapy. Key topics include the mechanism of action of PARP inhibitors, clinical trial data that have led to the current U.S. Food and Drug Administration–approved indications, common and important toxicities of this drug class with recommended dose adjustments, and the rationale for choosing a particular PARP inhibitor for a specific patient. Combination therapy with PARP inhibitors will be discussed, as well as suggestions for toxicity management and future directions of PARP inhibitor use.
