Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors have transformed the treatment landscape for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and alterations in DNA damage response genes. This has also led to widespread use of genomic testing in all patients with mCRPC. The current review will give an overview of (1) the current understanding of the interplay between DNA damage response and PARP enzymes; (2) the clinical landscape of PARP inhibitors, including the combination of PARP inhibitors with other agents such as androgen-receptor signaling agents; (3) biomarkers related to PARP inhibitor response and resistance; and (4) considerations for interpreting genomic testing results and treating patients with PARP inhibitors.
