[PARP inhibitors: new therapeutic agents in breast and ovarian cancer].
PARP inhibitors are novel drugs under development in oncology, particularly against breast and ovarian cancer. They act on the DNA repair mechanisms in synergy with the loss of BRCA function of the tumor cells, thereby inducing a genetic instability that leads to cell death. The clinical benefit of PARP inhibitors has been demonstrated for breast and ovarian cancer in BRCA germline mutation carriers. Their use in sporadic triple negative breast cancers, that share similarities with BRCA1 mutated tumors, is currently investigated with encouraging preliminary results.
