A Phase II Randomized Trial of Olaparib (NSC-747856) Administered Concurrently With Radiotherapy Versus Radiotherapy Alone for Inflammatory Breast Cancer


We are studying how well radiation therapy with or without olaparib works in treating people with inflammatory breast cancer. Olaparib may keep cancer cells from repairing themselves, making them die. We want to see if adding this drug to radiation therapy is more effective.

I'm interested
