FDA OKs Talzenna for specific type of breast cancer

The Food and Drug Administration has cleared Talzenna (talazoparib), a poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor, for patients with deleterious or suspected deleterious germline BRCA-mutated, HER2‑negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

Patients must be selected for therapy based on an FDA-approved companion diagnostic for talazoparib, which will be marketed by Pfizer.
