Olaparib + Zytiga for Metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer: PCRI video

Recommended Posts


Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ...

In this video Prostate Cancer Research Institute Executive Director Mark Scholz talks about a clinical trial for men who are metastatic and have rising psa on hormone therapy.

The trial is testing whether adding the PARP inhibitor Lynparza (olaparib) to the super-hormone Zytiga (abiraterone) increases its effectiveness.


You can find out about the clinical trial at:


Details there include:

  • inclusion details (things you need to get into the trial);
  • exclusion details (what will keep you out of the trial); and
  • locations.

Australian locations include:

  • Box Hill, Australia, 3128
  • Darlinghurst, Australia, 2010
  • Greenslopes, Australia, 4120
  • Herston, Australia, 4029
  • Kingswood, Australia, 2747
  • Kurralta Park, Australia, 5037
  • St Albans, Australia, 3021
  • Waratah, Australia, 2298


As always, ask your doctor if you think this might be for you.

... end Jim

What's the theory behind adding a PAR-I if a man is NOT BRCA+??? To me it sounds like throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks.  Scholz throws very little if any light on why they are combining these two drugs.
