ESMO recommendations on predictive biomarker testing for homologous recombination deficiency and PARP inhibitor benefit in ovarian cancer

    Año de publicación: 2020

    The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Translational Research and Precision Medicine Working Group identified that there is currently uncertainty within the oncology community surrounding the different methods for HRD testing in HGSC. To address this, a collaborative project was launched with a number of clinicians and scientists with expertise in the fields of PARPi clinical trials, cancer genomics and DNA repair.

    The group defined three main aims for the project:

    (i) Define the term ‘HRD test’ and recommend how an HRD test’s clinical validity is currently best assessed in the context of HGSC, (ii) provide an overview of the biological rationale and the level of evidence supporting currently available HRD tests, and (iii) provide recommendations on the clinical utility of HRD tests in clinical management of HGSC.
