How Does It Work

PARP is short for Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase. It is a protein that helps damaged cells to repair themselves. Lynparza stops PARP from working.

Some cancer cells rely on PARP to keep their DNA healthy. This includes cancer cells with a change in the BRCA gene. So, when Lynparza stops PARP from repairing DNA damage, the cancer cells die.

This is a type of targeted cancer medication, called a cancer growth blocker.

How Should You Take Lynparza?

Lynparza comes as a tablet or a capsule to take by mouth twice daily with or without food. Try to space your doses about 12 hours apart.

Take Lynparza at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.

Take Lynparza exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Swallow the tablet or capsule whole; do not crush chew, divide, or dissolve them
