HONG KONG – Adding the oral molecular targeted therapy Afinitor (everolimus, Novartis AG) to conventional chemotherapy plus anti-HER2 treatment reduced the risk of progression of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) positive advanced breast cancer resistant to Herceptin (trastuzumab, Roche AG) by 22 percent and may provide clues to the mechanisms underlying Herceptin resistance, researchers report.
