Intermediate HER2 expression is associated with poor prognosis in estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer patients aged 55 years and older.

An antibody-drug conjugate targeting HER2, DS8201, has shown clinical activity against breast cancer with low-level HER2 expression. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic impact of intermediate HER2 exp...

An updated evaluation of serum sHER2, CA15.3, and CEA levels as biomarkers for the response of patients with metastatic breast cancer to trastuzumab-based therapies.

The transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinase HER2 is overexpressed in approximately 15% of breast tumors and correlates with poor clinical prognosis. Several treatments that target HER2 are approved for...

Tucatinib, Trastuzumab, and Capecitabine for HER2-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer who have disease progression after therapy with multiple HER2-targeted agents have limited treatment opt...

Clinical applications of trastuzumab in the management of HER-2-positive breast cancer.

Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 is a member of human epidermal growth factor receptors, overexpressed or amplified in nearly 20% of breast cancer cases. HER2 overexpression is associated with...

Long-term survival in HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer treated with first-line trastuzumab: results from the french real-life curie database.

Outcome of HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients has improved since the use of trastuzumab. However, most HER2-positive MBC patients will progress within 1 year of trastuzumab-based t...

To Reduce the Use of Chemotherapy in Elderly Patients With ER-positive and HER2-positive Breast Cancer (TOUCH)

This is a phase II open-label, multicentre, randomized trial. The study assesses the treatment of elderly patients with hormone receptor positive/HER2 positive early breast cancer with neo...

Niraparib in Combination With Trastuzumab in Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer

The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) regulates cell growth and survival. Approximately 15-20% of all breast cancers are HER2-positive, which are an aggressive and fast-growi...

T-DM1 in HER2-positive Metastatic/Relapsed Breast Cancer

This is a retrospective, multicenter, non-interventional study for the evaluation of real-world efficacy and safety of T-DM1 in metastatic/relapsed HER2-positive breast cancer as part of t...

Novel Capecitabine Dosing Schedule in Combination With Lapatinib, Based on the Norton-Simon Mathematical Method in Patients With HER2 Overexpressed/Amplified, Trastuzumab (Herceptin) -Refractory, Metastatic Breast Cancer

HER2 is a protein that sits on the surface of breast cancer cells in some people. Because you are one of these people, your breast cancer is called "HER2-positive." The HER2 protein is inv...

T-DM1 and Palbociclib for Metastatic HER2 Breast Cancer

This is a randomized phase II study to evaluate if the combination of T-DM1 with palbociclib improves progression-free survival compared to single agent T-DM1in patients with metastatic HE...
