BACKGROUND: Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide among gynecologic malignancies. The recent approval of inhibitors of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (iPARP) in the treatment of ovarian cancer in the presence of a BRCA1/2 mutation has sparked the analysis of women with such diagnosis, which can further benefit from the detection of carriers in the family. Germline sequence and large rearrangements for BRCA1/2 were tested in 398 consecutive epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients...

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) family has become a promising therapeutic target in various malignancies including breast cancer. When homologous recombination repair is deficient, as it is observed in BRCA1/2-mutated tumor models, inhibition of PARP was shown to induce massive and selective tumor cell death (the so-called "synthetic lethality"). In breast cancer, PARP inhibitors have been developed as single-agent in BRCA1/2-mutated tumors or in combination with chemotherapy. Recently, a randomized phase III clinical trial failed to demonstrate any survival improvement by combining the iPARP iniparib to chemotherapy in triple-negative metastatic breast cancer patients...
