Neratinib was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in July. It is designed for the treatment of adult patients with early stage HER2-overexpressed/amplified breast cancer. Meanwhile, it is marketed in the United States as NERLYNX™ (neratinib) tablets.
Most noteworthy, research has shown that trastuzumab can reduce the risk of early stage HER2-positive breast cancer returning after surgery. Nevertheless, up to 25% of patients treated with trastuzumab experience recurrence.
