BRAVO
BRAVO

A study investigating the PARP inhibitor niraparib for women with previously treated HER2 negative, BRCA positive breast cancer.

BROCADE Study
BROCADE Study

A treatment study investigating the PARP inhibitor veliparib for people with advanced breast cancer who have a BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation.

INFORM Study
INFORM Study

A study for newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients who carry a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation.

ARIEL 2
ARIEL 2

ARIEL2 is a new Phase 2 PARP inhibitor clinical trial now enrolling women with platinum-sensitive, relapsed, high-grade epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer.

NOVA Study
NOVA Study

A maintenance study investigating the PARP inhibitor niraparib for women with ovarian cancer who have high grade serous histology or known BRCA mutation and are platinum sensitive.

Salpingectomy Research Registry
Salpingectomy Research Registry

Study for women who have had their fallopian tubes surgically removed and kept one or both of your ovaries to reduce their ovarian cancer risk.

Basser Research Center for BRCA
Basser Research Center for BRCA

Research studies open to people with a BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation from Basser Research Center for BRCA within Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center.

BRAVO BRAVO

BRAVO is a trial for men and women who have HER2 negative, BRCA mutation positive (hereditary) breast cancer that has progressed after previous treatment. The study will look at how well niraparib (a PARP inhibitor) works compared with standard chemotherapy. Patients will be randomized 2 to 1 so that two patients will take niraparib and one will take their doctor’s choice of chemotherapy. Collaborators for this international trial include the Breast International Group (BIG) and the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC).

BROCADE Study BROCADE Study

Men and women aged 18 years or older who have advanced (metastatic) breast cancer due to a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation are invited to see if they may qualify for the Brocade Study to determine the safety and effectiveness of the investigational PARP inhibitor medication veliparib in combination with chemotherapy.

INFORM Study INFORM Study

INFORM is a study for patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer who have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. The study is evaluating whether the chemotherapy drug cisplatin is better than currently used standard chemotherapy drugs (Cyclophosphamide/Doxorubicin) for treating patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer due to an inherited abnormality (mutation) in one of the breast cancer genes, BRCA1 or BRCA2.

ARIEL 2 ARIEL 2

ARIEL 2 is a new Phase 2 PARP inhibitor clinical trial now enrolling women with platinum-sensitive, relapsed, high-grade epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer. The primary goal of the study is to evaluate molecular markers to predict how a woman with ovarian cancer may respond to rucaparib treatment. All women enrolled in the study will receive rucaparib treatment and lab test results including BRCA and the molecular marker results.

NOVA Study NOVA Study

NOVA is a maintenance trial for women aged 18 and older with ovarian cancer to find out if niraparib (a PARP inhibitor) can help delay worsening of ovarian cancer among patients who had a good response to previous treatment with a platinum-type chemotherapy drug (i.e. cisplatin, carboplatin).  Niraparib will be compared to placebo and patients will be randomized so that 2 out of 3 patients will take niraparib and 1 out of 3 will take placebo.  This study is designed with the hope of preventing progression of the cancer after another treatment has caused the cancer to improve.

Salpingectomy Research Registry Salpingectomy Research Registry

Have you had your fallopian tubes surgically removed and kept one or both of your ovaries? Did you have this surgery to reduce your ovarian cancer risk? Researchers at the University of Washington in collaboration with Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE) are studying the long-term outcomes of prophylactic salpingectomy (removal of the fallopian tubes). To learn more about this research study, call 206-685-7927 or email vhy@uw.edu orkagnew@uw.edu. They cannot ensure the confidentiality of any information sent by e-mail.
