|Therapy Name||Neratinib + Pertuzumab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Neratinib||Nerlynx||HKI-272|PB272||HER2 Inhibitor 23||Nerlynx (neratinib) inhibits the ERBB2 (HER2) receptor as well as EGFR, resulting in decreased proliferation of HER2 and EGFR expressing tumor cells (PMID: 15173008). Nerlynx (neratinib) is FDA approved for use in patients with early stage ERBB2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer following Herceptin (trastuzumab)-based therapy, and in combination with Xeloda (capecitabine) in patients with advanced/metastatic ERBB2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer who have received two or more anti-ERBB2 (HER2) regimens (FDA.gov).|
|Pertuzumab||Perjeta||2C4 Antibody||HER2 (ERBB2) Antibody 37||Perjeta (pertuzumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds ERBB2 (HER2) to prevent dimerization and subsequent HER signaling, thereby resulting in apoptosis and tumor growth inhibition (PMID: 15699478). Perjeta (pertuzumab) is FDA approved in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Taxotere (docetaxel) for patients with ERBB2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer and in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab) and chemotherapy as neoadjuvant treatment for patients with ERBB2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer (FDA.gov).|
