"Effect of germline DNA repair gene mutations on outcomes in men with metastatic castration-resistant
prostate cancer receiving first-line abiraterone and enzalutamide."
"Conclusions: Outcomes to first
line NHT appeared better in mCRPC patients harboring germline BRCA/ATM mutations (vs. no
mutations), but not for patients with other non-BRCA/ATM germline mutations. These results support the hypothesis that AR may promote DNA repair, and that inhibiting AR in the context of homologous recombination deficiency may lead to synthetic lethality."
