Computational analysis of
breast cancer samples from patients suggests therapeutic strategies used to
treat ovarian cancer could help treat a class of basal-like breast tumors.
Computational analysis of genomic and proteomic data from primary breast
cancer samples identified basal-like breast tumors as a class with features
similar to those of serous ovarian cancer. The data suggest patients with
this class of breast tumors might benefit from treatment with poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase
inhibitors and/or platinum compounds used to treat serous ovarian cancer.
Next steps could include clinical trials.
Abbott Laboratories has the
PARP inhibitor veliparib in
Phase I and Phase II trials to treat multiple types of cancer.
plc has the PARP inhibitor Olaparib
in Phase I testing to treat brain cancer and Phase II trials to treat solid
Pharmaceutical Inc. has BMN-673
in Phase I/II trials to treat hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.
