Liquid biopsy biomarker identifies patients with improved response to PARP inhibition in metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer.

Epic Sciences announced findings demonstrating a circulating tumor cell (CTC) biomarker can identify patients with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who are more likely to respond to treatment with a PARP inhibitor in combination with androgen receptor signaling inhibitors (ARSi) compared to those treated with ARSi alone (overall response rate of 93 percent vs. 22 percent).
