It’s the dog days of summer and yet there’s a lot happening on the DDR front from multiple angles.
After a short break from science, this makes now a really good time to reflect and take stock in order to explore some of the key issues facing the field, especially in terms of future combination approaches.
Research that’s appearing now may influence future trial designs – always a nagging worry in Pharmaland that the standard of care can change before you even get your own phase 3 readout! No one likes to be pipped to the post, after all.
With the early WEE–1 news this week and a raft of new PARP readouts, there is much to discuss and also plenty of nuance and subtlety to consider carefully because what looks obvious at first blush may not actually be the case based on prior evidence that many will have forgotten about.
So grab a cup of iced coffee and shades and settle down under your sunbrellas for a pleasant and easy to read review of the various trials, settings, combinations and DDR pathway considerations…
