REthinking Clinical Trials



Evaluating 6-months of herceptin in patients with HER2 positive early-stage breast cancer

Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Sharon McGee NCT04928261
Patients with HER2 positive breast cancer that were treated with chemotherapy and HER2 targeted therapy (such as Herceptin ®) before breast surgery, with no evidence of any remaining cancer at the time of surgery, are considered to have a low risk cancer. This single arm study will evaluate patient follow up data, cardiac monitoring and quality of life to determine if a shorter course of HER2 targeted therapy is acceptable in this low risk patient population.
