Abstract

The inability to efficiently repair DNA double-strand breaks using the homologous recombination repair pathway is defined as homologous recombination deficiency (HRD). This molecular phenotype represents a positive predictive biomarker for the clinical use of poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase inhibitors and platinum-based chemotherapy in ovarian cancers. However, HRD is a complex genomic signature, and different methods of analysis have been developed to introduce HRD testing in the clinical setting. This review describes the technical aspects and challenges related to HRD testing in ovarian cancer and outlines the potential pitfalls and challenges that can be encountered in HRD diagnostics.
