What is being tested?
The study tests Olaparib alone and in combination with Durvalumab in treating HER2 negative BRCA-mutated breast cancer. Olaparib is a PARP inhibitor approved for metastatic cases; Durvalumab is an immunotherapy approved for some lung cancers. Their combined use in breast cancer treatment remains experimental.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Olaparib may cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, blood cell count changes leading to increased infection risk or bleeding problems. Durvalumab can lead to immune system-related side effects like inflammation of organs (colitis), skin reactions (rash), hormonal gland issues (thyroid dysfunction) and infusion-related reactions.
