I know there was a clinical trial involving Doxil and the ABT Parp Inhibitator. Has anyone been able to get on this trial and receive the Parp Inhibitator and not Doxil. Everything that I've been reading on this site indicates people were given Doxil first. If anyone received the Parp Inhibitator, how is it working?

My mother was in this trial...the doxil wasn't working (meaning it spread to the liver while she was on it). The PARP made her feel awful and the liver tumor grew over 1.25 inches in 2 months...so she was pulled and is now on dense dose taxol....sorry we don't have better news to report....
