Inclusion criteria
The factors, or reasons, that allow a person to participate in a clinical study.

- Documentation of a deleterious, suspected deleterious, or pathogenic germline BRCA1 or
BRCA2 mutation from Myriad Genetics or other laboratory approved by the Sponsor

- No more than 3 prior chemotherapy-inclusive regimens for locally advanced and/or
metastatic disease (no limit on prior hormonal therapies or targeted anticancer
therapies such as mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) or CDK4/6 inhibitors,
immune-oncology agents, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, or monoclonal antibodies against

- Prior treatment with a taxane and/or anthracycline in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant,
locally advanced, or metastatic setting unless medically contraindicated

- Have measurable or non-measurable, evaluable disease by the revised response
evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST) v.1.1

Exclusion criteria
The factors, or reasons, that prevent a person from participating in a clinical study.
Show details

- First-line locally advanced and/or metastatic breast cancer with no prior adjuvant
chemotherapy unless the Investigator determines that one of the 4 cytotoxic
chemotherapy agents in the control arm would otherwise be offered to the subject

- Prior treatment with a PARP inhibitor (not including iniparib)

- Not a candidate for treatment with at least 1 of the treatments of protocol-specific
physician's choice (ie, capecitabine, eribulin, gemcitabine, vinorelbine)

- Subjects who had objective disease progression while receiving platinum chemotherapy
administered for locally advanced or metastatic disease; subjects who received
low-dose platinum therapy administered in combination with radiation therapy are not

- Subjects who have received platinum in the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting are
eligible; however, subjects may not have relapsed within 6 months of the last dose of
prior platinum therapy

- Cytotoxic chemotherapy within 14 days before randomization

- Radiation or anti-hormonal therapy or other targeted anticancer therapy within 14 days
before randomization

- HER2 positive breast cancer

- Active inflammatory breast cancer

- CNS metastases

- Exception: Adequately treated brain metastases documented by baseline CT or MRI
scan that has not progressed since previous scans and that does not require
corticosteroids (except prednisone ? 5 mg/day or equivalent) for management of
CNS symptoms. A repeat CT or MRI following the identification of CNS metastases
(obtained at least 2 weeks after definitive therapy) must document adequately
treated brain metastases.

- Subjects with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis are not permitted

- Prior malignancy except for any of the following:

- A cancer diagnosed and definitively treated ? 5 years before randomization with
no subsequent evidence of recurrence

- Known to be human immunodeficiency virus positive

- Known active hepatitis C virus, or known active hepatitis B virus

- Known hypersensitivity to any of the components of talazoparib
