Most adverse events in the EMBRACA study were managed with standard supportive medical therapy or dose interruption/reduction1,2

Median time to first dose reduction due to any adverse event was
~5 months (19.3 weeks [95% Cl: 17.1-30.9]) with TALZENNA vs
~2 months (9.3 weeks [95% Cl: 6.4-NR]) with chemotherapy3,4*

  • Dose interruptions due to any adverse event of any grade occurred in 60% of TALZENNA patients vs 33% of chemotherapy patients3,4
  • Dose reductions due to any cause occurred in 52% of TALZENNA patients vs 49% of chemotherapy patients3,4
  • The most common adverse event with TALZENNA was anaemia5
  • 0.7% of patients discontinued TALZENNA due to anaemia overall2
  • Most Grade 3-4 toxic effects associated with the use of TALZENNA were haematologic laboratory abnormalities, were not associated with substantial clinical sequelae, and did not result in drug discontinuation1
Discontinuation rate due to adverse events1Adapted from Litton et al. N Engl J Med. 2018.1Discontinuation rate from pooled analysis6

The pooled analysis included 494 patients who received talazoparib at 1 mg daily in clinical studies for solid tumours, including 286 patients from a randomised Phase 3 study with germline BRCA-mutated (gBRCAm), HER2-negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer and 83 patients from a nonrandomised Phase 2 study in patients with germline BRCA-mutated locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
