Talazoparib in Women With Metastatic Triple Negative or HR+, HER2- Breast Cancer With A Somatic (Not Inherited) BRCA1/2 Mutation

Evaluation of Talazoparib, a PARP Inhibitor, in Patients With Somatic BRCA Mutant Metastatic Breast Cancer: Genotyping Based Clinical Trial Scientific Title

To study the anti-cancer activity of the PARP inhibitor Talazoparib (Talzenna®) in breast cancer tumors that test positive for a somatic BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation.
Who is this for?
Women with metastatic (stage IV) triple negative (ER-, PR-, HER2-) or hormone positive (ER+ and/or PR+), HER2 negative (HER2-) breast cancer. Your tumor must test positive for a BRCA 1 or a BRCA 2 somatic (not inherited) mutation.    Full eligibility criteria
