Description: Many recent studies have highlighted the importance of DNA repair pathways and the significance of PARP inhibitors. Using Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) testing, ovarian and breast cancers are currently the most well studied for the subsequent use of PARP inhibitor (PARPi) therapy. More information is emerging regarding HRD testing in prostate and pancreatic cancers, and clinical trials for PARP inhibitor therapy applications in these diseases are underway as well. AMP subject matter experts organized known scientific underpinnings and the most current research and clinical information into an up-to-date and useful three-part webcast series titled, “Targeting DNA Repair Pathways: Current and Future Implications of PARP Inhibitors”. This series will cover:

  1. The mechanism of action of PARP inhibitors and the science of Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) testing,
  2. Laboratory considerations (from sample acquisition to result reporting) for HRD testing, and
  3. Clinical considerations for testing and treatment and the need for genetic counseling.
