Datamonitor Healthcare Oncology: Breast Cancer: HER2+ Disease Coverage
May 09, 2018The approval of Herceptin (trastuzumab) in 1998 transformed the treatment of this aggressive disease, leading to increased disease-free progression and survival outcomes in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer. The subsequent development of additional HER2-targeted therapies has increased the treatment options available to patients, although Herceptin continues to dominate in the majority of treatment settings. HER2 is overexpressed in approximately 25% of breast cancers, and is associated with more aggressive tumors, poor short-term survival rates, and poor overall outcomes.
