What you'll learn
- Module 1 covers the use of PARP inhibitors as monotherapy in advanced prostate cancer
- Module 2 explains the rationale behind combination treatment with anti-androgens
- PARP inhibitors are effective drugs as monotherapy in mCRPC patients with HRR alterations
- Genetic testing is important to help with treatment decision-making and for understanding inherited risk
- BRCA mutations are associated with poor outcomes in mCRPC patients
- Patients with tumours harbouring BRCA1/BRCA2 alterations appear to derive the greatest clinical benefit from PARPi, but patients with other HRR alterations also derive benefit
- PARP inhibitors combined with novel hormonal agents are effective as a first-line treatment option for mCRPC patients with an HRR mutation. Certain combinations, such as olaparib plus abiraterone, have also shown benefits in patients regardless of their HRR status
