Clovis Oncology and Strata Oncology Announce Collaboration to Accelerate Enrollment in Rucaparib Prostate Cancer Development Program

Excerpt:

“Clovis Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLVS) and Strata Oncology, Inc. today announced an agreement to accelerate patient identification and enrollment for Clovis’ ongoing TRITON (Trial of Rucaparib in Prostate Indications) clinical trial program, which includes Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials of rucaparib in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, both of which are open for enrollment.

“Rucaparib is an oral inhibitor of poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP), approved in the U.S. in 2016 as Rubraca™ (rucaparib) as monotherapy for the treatment of patients with deleterious BRCA mutation (germline and/or somatic) associated advanced ovarian cancer, who have been treated with two or more chemotherapies, and selected for therapy by an FDA-approved companion diagnostic. Emerging data suggest PARP inhibition may also provide activity in the treatment of metastatic prostate cancers harboring deleterious mutations in BRCA1/2 and ATM or other human genes associated with DNA damage repair. These mutations may be germline (inherited) or somatic (acquired).”
