We first wrote about the fascinating and complex space way of synthetic lethality and PARP inhibition way back in 2006 when the early preclinical developments and targets were just emerging and finally here we are – 15 years later – with the very first phase 3 data in the adjuvant setting.

It’s not often I get to highlight someone and their extensive research from my alma mater, but it’s a delightful opportunity to put it on the front page for a change. The gritty urban setting is a far cry from the romance of the other Kings College (in Cambridge), although the two cities do overlap somewhat in this particular story.

What can we learn from the latest clinical development in early stage breast cancer and what don’t we yet know?

There’s actually quite a lot to ponder and digest here…
