  • Publication number: 20210047429
    Abstract: The present invention concerns treatment of previously untreated HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer with a combination of a growth inhibitory HER2 antibody, a HER2 dimerization inhibitor antibody and a taxane. In particular, the invention concerns the treatment of HER2-positiv metastatic breast cancer in patients who did not receive prior chemotherapy or biologic therapy with a HER2 antibody binding essentially to epitope 2C4, a HER2 antibody binding essentially to epitope 4D5, and a taxane. The invention further comprises extending survival of such patients by the combination therapy of the present invention. In a preferred embodiment, the treatment involves administration of trastuzumab, pertuzumab and docetaxel.

  • Publication number: 20190240185
    Abstract: The present invention concerns the treatment of disorders characterized by the overexpression of ErbB2. More specifically, the invention concerns the treatment of human patients susceptible to or diagnosed with cancer overexpressing ErbB2 with a combination of an anti-ErbB2 antibody and a chemotherapeutic agent other than an anthracycline, e.g. doxorubicin or epirubicin. The invention further provides a method of treating cancer in a human patient comprising administering effective amounts of an anti-ErbB2 antibody and a cardioprotectant to the patient.
