PROfound Trial Shows Increased rPFS in mCRPC Patients with BRCA1, BRCA2, and ATM Mutations – Summary:
Maha H. Hussain, MD, FACP, FASCO, and Celestia S. Higano, MD, discuss the PROfound Trial, which demonstrated increased radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) with the use of olaparib for mCRPC patients displaying the genetic mutations BRCA1, BRCA2, and ATM. Dr. Hussain outlines previous research of genetic mutations in mCRPC that led to this study, the study design and rationale of using two cohorts with specific mutations (BRCA1, BRCA2, and ATM) and non-specific mutations (other genetic alterations), and results that demonstrate promise for gene-targeted therapies in the future.
