      Hello and welcome to the "What Next" family. My name is Carm and I am an oncology nurse that specializes in gyne cancers. I saw your post and I think you meant ABT-888, AKA Veliparib. I know that it is a Parp inhibitor and that there are currently Phase I and Phase II trials ongoing; some for ovarian and fallopian tube with cyclophosphamide. I think I read that Mayo is also doing a study with it as well. Because it is a relatively newer drug still being evaluated, you might not find anyone who has experience with it. You might find some who have had experience with its predecessor, ABT 530. I would normally suggest you check out the FDA, however because the results for this drug are ongoing, I have attached a link that lists the info from the FDA regarding the drug to date. It shows the data of adverse events (side effects) as well as more useful info on the corresponding tabs. Good luck in your search and I hope this helps you find the answers you seek, Carm.
