said Enhertu has been recommended by the EU’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use as a monotherapy for the treatment of adults with unresectable or metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer who have received one or more prior anti-HER2-based regimens.

This decision was based on trial results showing that Enhertu reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 72% compared with the trastuzumab emtansine drug.

Enhertu has been jointly developed and commercialized by AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo Co.
