PARP Inhibitors in Oncology


Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) enzymes play important roles in the repair of single-strand breaks (SSBs) in DNA. SSBs occur from environmental agents, spontaneous DNA bond disruption, or normal DNA metabolism. PARP1 binds to DNA following SSB and recruits other enzymes to repair the DNA damage.

Since hitting the market in 2015, drugs that target poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) have transformed the clinical management of cancers harboring BRCA-mutations. There are three approved PARP inhibitors and five pipeline therapies in Phase II and Phase III clinical development. While the majority of trials are focused on ovarian and breast cancer, makers of pipeline therapies are seeing a saturated market and turning towards prostate, pancreatic, and other cancers.

As more PARP inhibitors have been commercialized, drug developers are turning their attention towards broadening drug labels and exploring combination strategies. With greater emphasis being placed on combinations with PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors in breast cancer, as well as combinations with chemotherapy in ovarian, breast, prostate, and other cancers.

The report "PARP Inhibitors in Oncology", covers the management of PARP inhibitors in the US, Europe, and Asia, focusing on efficacy and safety comparisons for approved products, current and future indications, and research and development strategies.

Companies Mentioned: AbbVie, AstraZeneca, BeiGene, Clovis Oncology, Jiangsu Hengrui Medicine Co., Merck, Nerviano Medical Sciences, Oncology Venture, Pfizer, Sanofi, SyntheX, Tesaro
