- Herceptin (trastuzumab)
HERCEPTIN is used to treat breast and gastric cancer. It is only used in patients whose tumour has tested positive to the protein HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2). HERCEPTIN may be used alone or with other medicines that treat breast cancer, such as an aromatase inhibitor (hormone receptor positive breast cancer) or a taxane (e.g. paclitaxel or docetaxel). For the treatment of gastric cancer HERCEPTIN is used with chemotherapy medicines cisplatin and capecitabine (or 5FU).
