Title: List of PARP inhibitors
Legend: Several poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors are being developed as anticancer agents. PARP are a family of DNA damage sensors (of which PARP-1 is the most abundant and best characterized) involved in single strand DNA breaks via base excision repair (BER). PARP inhibitors (e.g. AG014699, AG14361, AZD2281 / NU1025, BGP-15, CEP-6800, FR255595, INO-1001, NU1085, PD128763, PJ-34) are highly active against malignant cells lacking proteins involved in double strand DNA breaks repair, such as BRCA1 and BRCA2; they also increase synergistically the antitumor activity of DNA damaging agents, such as some chemotherapeutic drugs and ionizing radiations.
