Hello Teal ssisters 

Considering a trial with PARP inhibitors. Anyone else have experience with this?

For a drug called Dalantercept. I know it is considered an inhibitor, but not sure if its the same as what your talking about. I just started it a few weeks ago, and its an injection. Supposed to block blood flow to the tumors so they can't grow. Do you know what the name of the drug or trial is? I have not had my cat scan yet to see if its working, but have heard good things. I am brca 1 +. Please let me know if you have any questions if its the same thing. Best of luck!
