What Is Zejula?

Zejula (niraparib) is an oral targeted therapy medication used for the treatment of ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancer. Zejula is a PARP (poly adenosine diphosphate-ribose polymerase) inhibitor that specifically targets cancer cells and exerts less harm on healthy cells in the body. PARP is a protein found in human cells which aids in repairing damaged cells. PARP inhibitors as targeted treatments work by blocking the repair of cancerous cells and allowing them to die. 

PARP inhibitors are given to patients after full or partial response to initial chemotherapy with a platinum-based medication. Zejula is used as a maintenance treatment to help prevent cancer from coming back. Zejula is a once-daily oral maintenance medication treatment available in 100 mg capsules that can be taken with or without food.
