Role of PARP Inhibitors in Prostate Cancer - Evan Yu

February 5, 2019

Neal Shore and Evan Yu share in a discussion on the evolving role of PARP inhibitors in the treatment of mCRPC.  Dr. Yu reviews the early interim results of rucaparib in the TRITON-2 study and points out the intricacies that must be considered when evaluating all the recent data involving DNA mutations. Drs. Shore and Yu discuss the class of  PARP inhibitors in clinical development and what makes each of these agents unique.  Dr. Yu points out that all the data needs to be interpreted carefully since not all trials are using a standardized assay for each of the genetic mutations making cross comparisons between trials challenging.
