Description

PARP1/2 inhibitors are a novel class of anticancer agents that have shown activity in tumors with defects in DNA repair and may induce synthetic lethality in combination with agents that induce DNA damage by preventing DNA repair.

The rationale of this study is to determine whether a DNA damaging agent can potentiate the cell death induced by PARP inhibitors in individuals with tumor that are more susceptible to chemotherapy.

The study will evaluate the potential benefits of BMN 673 in combination with weekly carboplatin in patients with metastatic tumors associated with BRCA germ line mutations or patients with triple negative breast cancer with no known BRCA mutation, subsequently if tolerated, an additional cohort will examine the feasibility of adding paclitaxel to this combination for any solid tumor malignancies with potential benefit to this combination.

This is the first study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of BMN 673 in combination with carboplatin in patients with either BRCA mutations or TNBC. If tolerable paclitaxel will be added to the combination in any solid tumor malignancies with potential benefit to this combination.
