Targeting Deficiency in Breast Cancer: What are the Clinical Evidences and the Next Perspectives?


Nicolas E, Bertucci F, Sabatier R, Gonçalves A


Breast cancers (BC) associated with germline mutations of represent 3⁻5% of cases. -associated BC have biological features leading to genomic instability and potential sensitivity to DNA damaging agents, including poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) and platinum agents. In this review, we will summarize clinical trials of chemotherapy and PARP inhibitors (PARPi), alone or in combination, at the early or late stage of -associated BC. We will also present the mechanisms of resistance to PARPi as well as the new therapeutic strategies of association with PARPi. Finally, we will discuss under which conditions the use of DNA damaging agents can be extended to the -wild type population, the ness concept.
