Lynparza is a prescription drug which used under the supervision of medical practioners


Olaparib belongs to targeted therapy. Olaparib is a type of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) enzyme inhibitor, contain PARP1, PARP2, and PARP3. PARP enzymes are included in DNA transcription, cell cycle managing, and DNA repair. Olaparib is aneffective oral PARP inhibitor which induces synthetic lethality in BRCA 1/2 deficient tumor cells via the formation of double-stranded DNA breaks which cannot be precisely repaired, which cause disruption of cellular homeostasis and cell death.

On basis of mechanism of action (PARP inhibition), Lynparza could cause risk to fetal when administered to a pregnant woman.
Lynparza combination with strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitors is not recommended.


  • Interaction with myelosuppressive anticancer agents contains DNA damaging agents, indicate a potentiation and prolongation of myelosuppressive toxicity.
  • Concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors (itraconazole, telithromycin, clarithromycin,) will increase Olaparib plasma concentration.
  • Concomitant use of strong CYP3A inducers (itraconazole, telithromycin, clarithromycin,) will decrease Olaparib plasma concentration.



Based on Lynparza mechanism of action, the drug causes risk to the fetal may occur when administrated to a pregnant woman.

No data available on the presence of Lynparza in human milk, hence avoid breast feeding during the treatment.
