The only way to improve cancer detection, prevention, and treatment is through research. People participating in research contribute to medical knowledge and have opportunity to receive cutting-edge care.
Our Featured Research Page lists cancer prevention, treatment and quality of life studies enrolling people with or at high risk for hereditary cancers. You can do a quick search to filter our featured studies by cancer type, study type or key word, or a more in-depth search through clinicaltrials.gov.

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.

Men with mCRPC with an inherited mutation or a tumor mutation in a DNA damage repair gene
Abiraterone/Prednisone and Olaparib Alone or In Combination for Treatment of Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer With Mutations Related to DNA Repair
This study is comparing three different treatments for men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, (mCRPC) who also have an inherited mutation or a tumor mutation in a gene that affects DNA damage repair. The study is open to men with inherited mutations found on genetic testing or tumor mutations in one of the following genes: ATM, BRCA1, BRCA2, FANCA, PALB2, RAD51, ERCC3, MRE11, NBN, MLH3, CDK12, CHEK2, HDAC2, ATR, PMS2, GEN1, MSH2, MSH6, BRIP1, or FAM175A.
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 study for men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer
Combination Drugs for Treating Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer with Tumor Mutation that Affect DNA Repair
The goal of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three different drug combinations to treat men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPR), who also have a mutation in a gene that affects DNA repair found through tumor testing.
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
Targeted Therapy RP-3500 Alone or in Combination with Talazoparib or Gemcitabine in Advanced Solid Tumors with DNA Damage Repair Mutations (TRESR Study)
This study is looking at how well a drug called RP-3500 works either alone or when combined with other cancer treatments in people with different types of advanced cancers with a mutation in one of the following genes: BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D, ATRIP, CHTF8, FZR1, MRE11, NBN, RAD17, RAD50, REV3L, SETD2 or RNASEH2. RP-3500 is a type of oral, targeted therapy known as an ATR inhibitor. The combination prescribed will depend on cancer type and mutation and when people 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.
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.
Advanced solid tumors
This study will look at how well a new oral targeted therapy known as an ATR inhibitor works on advanced or metastatic solid tumors with mutations in genes linked to DNA damage repair. The study will look at response to treatment with the drug ART0380 in combination with the chemotherapy agent, gemcitabine.

This study will look at safety and affectiveness 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.
Abiraterone/Prednisone, Olaparib, or Abiraterone/Prednisone + Olaparib in Patients With Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer With DNA Repair Defects
This is a phase II study looking at different treatment combinations for men with metastatic, castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) to see which is most effective for improving progression free survival (keeping the cancer from progressing). The study will include testing for genes within the tumor to determine eligibility for the study.
Patients with tumors that have ATM, BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutations or defects will be randomly assigned to one of the treatment arms of the study. Patients with tumors that have mutations in other DNA repair genes including FANCA, PALB2, RAD51, ERCC3, MRE11, NBN, MLH3, CDK12, CHEK2, HDAC2, ATR, PMS2, GEN1, MSH2, MSH6, BRIP1, or FAM175A will be assigned to Arm IV with single agent olaparib.
