Daniel J. George, MD, professor of Medicine, professor in Surgery, Duke Cancer Institute, discusses the use of niraparib (Zejula) for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) harboring BRCA and ATM mutations.

The phase 2 Galahad trial (NCT02854436) evaluated niraparib in patients with a documented biallelic DNA-repair anomaly, including those with BRCA and ATM mutations, among other defects, George explains.

Niraparib demonstrated a high clinical response rate in this patient population, George continues. Additionally, both the objective response rate and duration of response were beneficial, George concludes.
