HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

Brain metastases from primary breast cancer tumors often acquire clinically actionable genetic alterations, according to a small study. About one fifth of ERBB2/HER2-negative cases switched to HER2-positivity in the brain metastases.

A higher quantity of stromal tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) was associated with better overall survival in patients with advanced HER2-positive breast cancer treated with either pertuzumab or placebo, along with trastuzumab and docetaxel.

The addition of estrogen deprivation to neoadjuvant chemotherapy did not significantly affect pathologic complete response in women with HR-positive, HER2-positive breast cancer.

A biosimilar yielded equivalent response rates to trastuzumab at 24 weeks in a study of women with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer.

In patients with HER2-positive breast cancer undergoing trastuzumab therapy, the use of an ACE inhibitor or beta-blocker could protect against cardiac toxicity.

Polymorphisms in the FCGR3A gene are correlated with degree of benefit from trastuzumab in women with ERBB2/HER2-positive breast cancer, according to a new analysis.

The antibody-drug conjugate trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) showed non-inferior—but not superior—efficacy to trastuzumab plus a taxane in women with advanced HER2-positive breast cancer.
