Clinical application of PARP inhibitors: Proactive management of adverse events
Rebecca Kristeleit, MD, PhD

This educational activity is designed for oncologists, gynecologists, and other healthcare professionals interested and/or involved in the use of PARP inhibitors for the treatment of patients with ovarian cancer.

After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe current and emerging biomarkers that assess genomic instability and evaluate defects in DNA repair
  • Evaluate emerging clinical data and ongoing trials involving PARP inhibition for patients with BRCA 1/2 mutant and wildtype ovarian cancer
  • Assess the adverse events associated with PARP inhibition for ovarian cancer and how best to ensure long-term adherence to PARP inhibitors

This educational activity is supported by a grant from Clovis Oncology, Inc.
