Zejula (Niraparib) Drug

Zejula is one of several commercially approved PARP inhibitors. Zejula's differentiators include a broader indication, once a day dosing, and comprehensive PFS measurement. Zejula shows similar efficacy to other PARP inhibitors; however, its broader indication and once a day dosing may offer more convenience for physicians and patients.


TESARO's approved drugs may not ramp up as quickly as expected. Drugs undergoing clinical trials may not receive approval.
