Rubraca® (Rucaparib) Approved in the U.S. as Monotherapy Treatment for Patients with BRCA1/2-Mutant, Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC) Who Have Been Treated with Androgen Receptor-Directed Therapy and a Taxane-Based Chemotherapy

Clovis Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLVS), announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Rubraca® (rucaparib) tablets for the treatment of adult patients with a deleterious BRCA mutation (germline and/or somatic)-associated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have been treated with androgen receptor-directed therapy and a taxane-based chemotherapy. The FDA approved this indication under accelerated approval based on objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR) data from the multi-center, single arm TRITON2 clinical trial. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials. The TRITON3 clinical trial is expected to serve as the confirmatory study for the Rubraca accelerated approval in mCRPC.
