High-risk localized prostate cancer
Niraparib Before Surgery in Treating Patients With High Risk Localized Prostate Cancer and DNA Damage Response Defects
This study will look at how well the PARP Inhibitor niraparib works, when given before a radical prostatectomy, for people with high-risk prostate cancer that has not spread to other parts of the body, and who have a tumor mutation in any of the following genes:BRCA1/2, ATM, CDK12, CHEK1/2 FANCA, FANCD2, FANCL, GEN1, NBN, PALB2, RAD51, RAD51c, and BRIP1.
Treatment study for people with advanced solid tumors
Treating Metastatic Solid Tumors with an Inherited or Acquired Gene Mutation Using the PARP Inhibitor Talazoparib
This study is looking whether the drug Talazoparib (also known as Talzenna) is safe and effective for treating people with advanced solid cancers (including breast, gastric, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate or other solid tumors) in people with an inherited mutation (found through genetic testing) or an acquired mutation (found with biomarker testing) in ATM, ATR, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, BAP1, BARD1, CDK12, CHK1, CHK2, IDH1, IDH2, MRE11A, NBN, PALB2, RAD50, RAD51, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D, RAD54L or other genes.
Treatment study for people with advanced solid tumors, including triple-negative breast, ovarian, pancreatic and prostate cancer
This study will test how safe and effective the experimental drug NUV-868 is by itself and in combination with a PARP inhibitor in people with advanced solid tumors. The first part of the study will include people with any solid tumor type, and the second part will include people with triple-negative breast, ovarian, pancreatic or prostate cancers only.
Treatment study for mCRPC with an inherited or tumor mutation in BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CHEK1, FANCL, PALB2, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D or RAD54L
Treating Metastatic Prostate Cancer with Chemotherapy or PARP Inhibitor in People with Mutations (COBRA)
This study is comparing carboplatin chemotherapy to the drug, olaparib (a type of targeted therapy) as first-line treatment for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer in people with a BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CHEK1, FANCL, PALB2, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D or RAD54L inherited mutation found through genetic testing, or tumor mutation found through biomarker testing.
Treatment for metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer and a tumor or inherited mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, BRIP1, CHEK2, PALB2 or related gene
Treatment for Metastatic Castration-Sensitive Prostate Cancer and Inherited or Tumor Mutations in DNA Damage Repair Genes (Amplitude)
The goal of AMPLITUDE is to see if adding the PARP inhibitor niraparib to standard of care hormone therapy (Abiraterone Acetate, prednisone and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is safe and more effective than standard of care alone. The study is enrolling people who have metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer and have an inherited or tumor mutation in one of the following genes involved in DNA damage repair: BRCA2, BRCA1, BRIP1, CHEK2, FANCA, PALB2, RAD51B and RAD54L.
Treatment in people with aggressive metastatic prostate cancer
Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy and PARP Inhibitor for the Treatment of Metastatic Aggressive Variant Prostate Cancer
This study will look at how well the combination of chemotherapy drugs (such as cabazitaxel and carboplatin), a PARP inhibitors (niraparib), and an immunotherapy agents (cetrelimab) works for treating people with a rare type of prostate cancer known as aggressive variant prostate cancer (AVPC). The research will compare the benefits of giving niraparib with or without cetrelimab, after treatment with chemotherapy.
Newly diagnosed prostate cancer grade group 3-5
Androgen Suppression With Abiraterone, Leuprolide, PARP Inhibitor and Stereotactic Radiotherapy in Prostate Cancer (ASCLEPIuS)
This study will look at treating men with high risk prostate cancer using the PARP inhibitor, niraparib combined with prostate stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), abiraterone, leuprolide, and prednisone. Phase 1 of this study will look at the best dose of niraparib for this treatment combination. The phase 2 portion of this study will look at the 3-year PSA recurrence free-survival rate of the patients who received this combined therapy.
Advanced ovarian, breast, prostate or pancreatic cancer
Investigational PARP Inhibitor AZD5305 Alone or Combined With Other Anti-cancer Agents in People With Advanced Solid Tumors (PETRA)
PETRA is studying a new PARP inhibitor AZD5305 taken either alone or combined with other treatments in people with advanced ovarian, breast, prostate or pancreatic cancer with an inherited or tumor mutation in: BRCA1/2, PALB2, RAD51C or RAD51D. The treaments participants receive will depend on their cancer type, mutation and when they join the study.
Advanced solid tumors
A Study of the Investigational Targeted Therapy ART4215 to Treat Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors
This study is looking at how well a drug called ART4215 works either alone or when combined with the PARP inhibitor talazoparib in people with different types of advanced cancers. ART4215 is an oral targeted therapy that is designed to keep cancer cells from repairing DNA damage.
Advanced solid tumors
Testing the New Targeted Therapy CYH33 in Combination With the PARP Inhibitor Olaparib in People With Advanced Solid Tumors and DNA Damage Repair Mutations
This study will look at safety and effectiveness of the targeted therapy CYH33 combined with the PARP inhibitor olaparib in people with advanced cancers and a DNA damage repair (DDR) gene mutation whose cancer got worse on, or after receiving a PARP inhibitor. The study will also enroll people with recurrent, platinum resistant ovarian cancer. In addition to safety and efficacy, the study will test whether the combination of CYH33 and olaparib can block tumor growth and overcome a patient’s resistance to PARP inhibitor treatment.
