Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Efficacy of PARP Inhibitors as Maintenance Therapy for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

,

Muhammad Rafay Khan Niazi, MD, and Alexander Bershadskiy, MD, spoke with CancerNetwork® about the latest research from the journal ONCOLOGY® on the use of PARP inhibitors as maintenance therapy for certain patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.

This week, CancerNetwork® spoke with Muhammad Niazi, MD, resident in internal medicine at Staten Island University Hospital, and Alexander Bershadskiy, MD, attending physician at Staten Island University Hospital, about a meta-analysis published in ONCOLOGY® titled, “Efficacy of PARP Inhibitors as Maintenance Therapy for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.

The final analysis evaluated 3 randomized clinical trials. A fixed model showed a statistically significant improvement in overall survival for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with PARP inhibitors.

The authors provided a detailed background on PARP inhibitors and further detailed the results of this research, focusing on increased survival with PARP inhibitor treatment for this patient population.
