PARP inhibitor shows activity in pancreatic, prostate cancers among patients carrying BRCA mutations

Results of the study, led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, will be presented during the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting in Chicago in early June.
