Therapy Description


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Olaparib Lynparza AZD2281|KU-0059436 PARP Inhibitor (Pan) 17 Lynparza (olaparib) binds to and inhibits PARP, resulting in inhibition of DNA repair and lethality in homologous-recombination deficient cells, and may be a sensitizing agent for chemotherapy and radiotherapy (PMID: 25028150, PMID: 24225019). Lynparza (olaparib) is FDA approved for use in patients with germline BRCA-mutated advanced ovarian cancer, germline BRCA-mutated and ERBB2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer, and advanced epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer with deleterious or suspected deleterious germline or somatic BRCA mutations (

STAG2 N357fs glioblastoma multiforme sensitive Olaparib + Temozolomide Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, glioblastoma cells harboring a STAG2 mutation (reported as STAG2 N357fs, PMID: 21852505) demonstrated increased sensitivity to the combination of Lynparza (olaparib) and Temodar (temozolomide) compared to isogenic cells with wild-type STAG2 in culture (PMID: 24356817). 21852505 24356817
Unknown unknown colorectal cancer not applicable Olaparib + Temozolomide Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, the addition of Lynparza (olaparib) to Temodar (temozolomide) resulted in greater antitumor activity than Temodar (temozolomide) alone in colorectal cancer cell line xenograft models, demonstrating decreased tumor volume (PMID: 27550455). 27550455
Unknown unknown Ewing sarcoma not applicable Olaparib + Temozolomide Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, Ewing sarcoma cells treated with Temodar (temozolomide) combined with Lynparza (olaparib) resulted in very strong synergism, inducing apoptosis and reducing cell viability in culture (PMID: 26438158). 26438158
