Background In I-SPY 2, HER2- patients were adaptively randomized to receive standard chemotherapy or the PARP inhibitor veliparib with carboplatin (V/C) and chemotherapy. V/C graduated in the triple-negative (TN) subtype, and we have previously shown that DNA repair deficiency signatures [PARPi-7 and BRCAness] … Continued
