Rucaparib is a type of PARP inhibitor, and also called AG014699, PARP-1 inhibitor AG014699. This PARP inhibitor is also being studied in the treatment of certain other types of cancer.

The recommended dose is 600 mg (two 300 mg rucaparib tablets) taken by mouth twice daily with or without food, for a total daily dose of 1,200 mg. Continue treatment of Rucaparib until the disease is progressive or unacceptable toxicity occurs. 

If any patient misses a dose of Rucaparib, instruct the patient to take the very next dose at its scheduled time. Puked doses should not be replaced. 

Patients receiving Rucaparib for mCRPC should also receive a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analog concurrently or should have had bilateral orchiectomy. 

Most commonly reported rucaparib side effects among patients with ovarian cancer are nausea, fatigue, AST/ALT elevation, vomiting, anemia, dysgeusia, constipation, decreased appetite, diarrhea, rash, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, stomatitis, nasopharyngitis/URI, abdominal pain/distention, and dyspnea.

  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)/Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) may occur in patients treated with rucaparib 300 mg, and are potentially fatal adverse reactions. The time-span of treatment prior to the diagnosis of MDS/AML ranged from one month to around  53 months.
  • Do not initiate rucaparib treatment until patients have recovered from hematological toxicity due to previous chemotherapy (≤ Grade-1). Assess complete blood counts (CBC) for cytopenia at baseline and monthly thereafter for clinically significant changes throughout the therapy. 
  • For prolonged hematological toxicities (> 4 weeks), interrupt rucaparib uses or reduce dose and assess blood counts weekly until recovery. In case the levels have not recovered to Grade-1 or less after four weeks or if AML/MDS is suspected, refer the patient to a hematologist for further assessment, including analysis of bone marrow and blood sample for cytogenetics. In case AML/MDS is confirmed, discontinue treatment.
