Episode 7: A new drug

In 2020, Mom was dealing with the covid pandemic as well as cancer. After her chemotherapy treatment ended, she started on a new drug, called niraparib, to try and prevent a recurrence. She would end up back in the emergency room, but this time, it wasn’t covid, or cancer. And, I talked to Dr Tracy Brooks for a deep dive on PARB inhibitors, a relatively new class of drugs used in cancer treatment.
